WordPress Search widget
Hello guys, I am trying to set up a search function to a custom wordpress theme, but so far not so good.
I have taken a look at the wordpress made themes to see how they set up a search widget, I have gotten it working for my site but I feel as though I have cheated by not understanding how to write the code myself.
Does not seem that there is a video on it here at Treehouse, do you guys know of a good tutorial?
I did come across (http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Search_Page) however it did not help to much

When I was building a custom theme I did the same thing as you - I looked at the searchform.php file for one of the default WordPress themes. They actually recommend this on the link you posted.
"This is a template file that is often included in the sidebar of many themes and generates the search box form. If there isn't one in your theme, you can easily copy it from the Default theme."
