    Proper Way to Change "Search for" and "Near" in child theme

    Hey Guys


    I am looking to change the text in the header area. I found the solution here:

    http://forums.appthemes.com/report-v...ch-near-31889/

    I see where I can do it in the parent file, but want to make the change in a child theme. My parent theme looks like this:

    Code:
    <div id="main-navigation" class="container">
    	<div class="row">
    		<div id="rounded-nav-box" class="rounded">
    			<div id="rounded-nav-box-overlay">
    				<?php va_display_navigation_menu(); ?>
    				<?php if ( false !== apply_filters('va_show_search_controls', true ) ) : ?>
    				<form method="get" action="<?php echo trailingsla****( home_url() ); ?>">
    					<div id="main-search">
    						<div class="search-for">
    							<label for="search-text">
    								<span class="search-title"><?php _e( 'Search For ', APP_TD ); ?></span>
    								<?php do_action('va_search_for_above'); ?>
    							</label>
    							<div class="input-cont h39">
    								<div class="left h39"></div>
    								<div class="mid h39">
    									<input type="text" name="ls" id="search-text" class="text" value="<?php va_show_search_query_var( 'ls' ); ?>" />
    								</div>
    								<div class="right h39"></div>
    							</div>
    						</div>
    
    						<div class="search-location">
    							<label for="search-location">
    								<span class="search-title"><?php _e( 'Near ', APP_TD ); ?></span><span class="search-help"><?php _e( '(city, country)', APP_TD ); ?></span>
    							</label>
    							<div class="input-cont h39">
    								<div class="left h39"></div>
    								<div class="mid h39">
    									<input type="text" name="location" id="search-location" class="text" value="<?php va_show_search_query_var( 'location' ); ?>" />
    								</div>
    								<div class="right h39"></div>
    							</div>
    						</div>
    
    						<div class="search-button">
    							<button type="submit" id="search-submit" class="rounded-small"><?php _e( 'Search', APP_TD ); ?></button>
    						</div>
    					</div>
    					<?php the_search_refinements(); ?>
    				</form>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    			</div>
    		</div>
    	</div>
    </div>
    Do I simply copy and paste this entire code into my header.php file in my child theme? or do I just cut out a snippet pertaining to the actual lines I want to change. Can someone articulate the proper way to do this, thanks?

    by the way, I also would like to drop the text down into the actual search box area and have it automatically disappear once you start typing and to also put the "add a business" button in the header, too - does that change the answer?
