Support Forum

Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

× Ideal Store Locator Plugin (iStoreLocator) works with Google Maps API which allows your website visitors to easily locate stores/contacts on the map.

Make the search box wider

1 year 6 months ago #24912 by cjsmiff

Is it possible to make the search box wider please? On smaller laptop screens & ipad it's difficult to see which village to select (we have many with the same names here) because it's cut off.

I have tried changing the input.isl-location-search width in the css but nothing changed. Could you point me in the right direction please?

Many thanks for your time.
Claire :)

Dear Claire,

The autocomplete search results is a Google Maps API service and it automatically sets the width to match the input's width.
You don't seem to be using the Geolocate/Find my location button or your site is not on HTTPS, so you can have a wider field.

Please edit the plugin options and under the Advanced tab set add the following Custom CSS code:
.isl-search-bar input.isl-location-search{min-width:75%}

Then change the percentage according to your needs.

Don't forget to clear all caches (Joomla+browser) before reloading the page.

Best regards,

Hi Douglas,

That's great, the css solved my problem. Thank you very much.

FYI only... the site is on HTTPS ( ). I have the Find My Location button disabled so as not to confuse people on the island even more than Google Maps already does. it never knows where I am here and places that I have lived still don't even exist on it, so it's best it's done automatically or they type their village name. But, I did try turning it on before adding the css code to see if it made a difference but it didn't.

Many thanks again!
Claire :-)
