Change The Width Of Google Search Bar

Once you get the code for your search box you can add it to your sidebar or anywhere in your template.To change the width you simply change the input size.So look through the search bar code until you find this snippet :

<input type="text" name="q" size="31" />

Now change the size from 31 as it is above to the size you require.The search bar i use below the posts uses the size 62 :

<input type="text" name="q" size="62" />

You can play around with the sizes until you find what your looking for.
