Is the Google Search Box not working on your blog?

I was facing this search problem since a few days. The Google search box on my blog that was operational since a few years suddenly started behaving weird. On any input, it would just come back to the same page with no results but a cross mark on the top right hand side of the gadget (x).

I Googled about it and found that Blogger engineers are aware of the issue and working for a permanent solution. Meanwhile, you can try the following solution.

Add a New Gadget - HTML / JavaScript.

Use the following code while replacing the URL in red with your blog URL:

<form action="" name="input" method="get">
<input value=" " name="q" size="35" type="text"/>
<input value="Search on this blog" type="submit"/>

 Hope this helps.
