Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Until now, my sitesearch (Atomz) has been located on the right hand side of the page in a column only 124 pixels wide.
I changed the AdSense search box, so that it would fit the same width - basically you can see the Google graphic, underneath which there is the search field, underneath which is the button, underneath which the two radio buttons - and have asked AdSense to give the green light.
I am hoping that if you don't touch the functionality of the search, you can visually format the search box however you want to.
I'll report back when I get a reply.
I see others have already made TOS violating changes, such as opening results in new windows, etc. It will be interesting to see if this is something the AdSense team plans on enforcing.
I just stuck style="background:#fff;" into the <img> tag.
Exactly what I have done, and it fits in with the existing page well enough. However, I don't want to upload it until we know if this change is acceptable. I've emailed them my version of the code, but I bet they'll take a while to reply as they must have had a busy day.
Here's hoping the black background version comes out soon.
IMHO all this is a slap in the face of every professional webmaster who tries to adhere to accessibility guidelines. So it is against the TOS to put <label> around the radio buttons? Or to add the accesskey attribute to the text input box?
Come on Google, think again.
