First off, I am still learning Wordpress by building my own theme. Go easy on me.

My search URL displays my sites title. Example: /My%20Site?s=horror

Is there an issue with my searchform.php that is causing this? If its the bloginfo(); then what can I use as a replacement?

<form action="<?php bloginfo('search'); ?>" id="searchform" method="get">
  <input name="s" class="nav-search" type="text" placeholder="Search Videos">

Use <?php echo home_url( '/' ); ?> as the action. 'search' by the way is not a valid bloginfo parameter.

  • Thank you so much for the help :) ill look up home_url(); on the codex for more info. Jun 26, 2014 at 23:01
