It looks nice, but you have all values hardcoded. Some people use .php3 files instead of the "normal" .php extension. Others have differen't languages installed. Please also give us a text link.

The paths don't have a / at the beginning. It's not
/templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl


Same goes for other paths inside the code.
<img

src="/phpBB/templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_search.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" align="top" alt="Search"

hspace="3" />


It has unnessecairy spaces there, "Search" is hardcoded and the path should be something like this:

Code: Select all

templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_search.gif
It should ALWAYS be relative to the phpBB root, and not to the webservers root.

There already is a MOD that does nearly the same as this one: Search box. You could post it as an addon / enhancement for that ;)

Don't take it personal, it's not bad for a first MOD! I just want to give you some tipps to improve!

Version 0.0.2 is out, and I updated the top so you can download the file.

Some ideas that might come out will be a possible admin panel config that will have control of transparency, box colors and text colors, but I have no idea how to do this.. I'll study on it ;)
