    font-awesome icons in search input

    Hi,

    Can someone shed some light as to why the font-awesome icon is not showing inside the search input box? It will show outside the box. Here's my code:


    This is in my header.php file:

    Code:
    <input name="s" type="text" id="s" tabindex="1" class="editbox_search fa fa-search" style="<?php cp_display_style( 'search_field_width' ); ?>" value="<?php the_search_query(); ?>" placeholder="<?php esc_attr_e( '&nbsp;What are you looking for?', APP_TD ); ?>" />
    This is in my style.css file:
    Code:
    @import url("//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css");
    Note: If I add the <span class="fa fa-search"></span> that DOES WORK, but it doesn't show inside the input, rather next to it.

    What's the trick?

    Brian

    $function ('CUSTOMIZATION'); } else { .DESIGN { display: awesome; }
    If you require any additional functionality or design customization, just ask. Afterall... anything is possible! However, I may not know how to implement your particular request, but if you don't ask, you don't get

    If you build it, they will come...
