    Using the same idea you posted here I didn’t think it functioned quite like the Amazon search bar so I used the code here as a starting point and rewrote it using floats. I didn’t like the select area to be fixed it should change width accordingly. Hope you like the improvements. since you cannot upload graphics i replaced the drop arrow and submit button with a solid color you just need to change the background to the image instead. Hope you like it. Now it works and looks exactly like the Amazon bar.
