When I install the custom search script on my page, the layout is broken. See the attached screenshot.


I cut and pasted the following code:

  (function() {
    var cx = '000119385509173658979:1gb8nobc8-a';
    var gcse = document.createElement('script'); gcse.type = 'text/javascript'; gcse.async = true;
    gcse.src = (document.location.protocol == 'https:' ? 'https:' : 'http:') +
        '//www.google.com/cse/cse.js?cx=' + cx;
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s);

It works but it looks screwed up. How can fix this?

Here's the CSS that fixed it:

.gsc-input-box { background: none !important; border: none !important; height: auto !important; }

.gsc-search-box .gsc-input>input:hover, .gsc-input-box-hover { border: none !important; }

.gsc-search-box .gsc-input>input:focus, .gsc-input-box-focus { border: none !important; }

.gsc-result .gs-title { line-height: 1.5em !important; }

input.gsc-input { border: 1px solid #d9d9d9 !important; }
