We are running Confluence 3.0.0_01 / Themebuilder 3.3.5_conf210.
To get search suggestions working we used the {builder-search} macro. This works fine!
However, the "suggestions box" is for some reason hovering on top of the search box.
Does anyone know how to edit the location of the "suggestions box" or is there a way to work around the {builder-search} macro?
I have been looking around the forum but can't really find any solutions to this issue (sad)
Any help is much appreciated.

    I'm having the exact same problem, using Builder 3.3.5-conf210, and confluence 3.0.1.
    The dropdown menu for the suggestions is located at the top-right corner.
    Same problem also with Builder 3.3.4-conf210

    Shouldn't this issue be fixed ? I think I saw something about the location of the dropdown menu for the builder search in a release note some time ago.

      Looks like Confluence CSS is putting a right:0; on the ul element.
      In a working version (2.10.3, 3.3.4-conf210), I think there might be a javascript function putting an inline style right:489px. This style is not written in my non-working instance.
      Also, the ul element was located below the dropdown menus dynarch-popup-menu in the working version, now it's located right below the searchbar. (DOM speaking)
      Don't know if this helps to understand the problem.

        Ok, after digging, I found that the ul element HAD an id : #quick-nav-drop-down in confluence < 3.0.1. Now it only has a class and not and id anymore. The jquery function has not been updated to fix the inline style.
        I'm trying to make a fix but it's not really efficient... (sad)

  2. This can be fixed in Confluence 3.0.0_01 by adding the following CSS snippet to your 'Custom CSS' in Theme Builder:

    .quick-search { position: relative; }

      Thanks a lot Mark !

      One more little thing for IE6 : The dropdown menu moves the submit button and the search bar when opening.
      Replacing clear:both by clear:right on the ul.ajs-drop-down element solves the problem.
