Search Not Working Powerstore3

Hi my search feature is not working for Powerstore 3.
I've compared it to the original and no difference in code.
Uploaded numerous times, both the template and the index page.
It works on the other pages using the same template.
url: SSS/
Thanks
Ciao

It is working for me.

If I visit your site and enter airbooster in the search box, it brings me to the following results page showing 2 products:

Products_Results.php?Search=Search&S_ProductName=airbooster

You are the only one it is working for, then.
Just to clarify, the url you provided me with here is a results page, and proves nothing.
When I go to the url I provided to you:
url: SSS/ and enter in airbooster or strollers or bath or anything else specifically in the search located on the first index.php page, it does not work. I also tried it from the posting I made earlier in your webassist site forum and it still didn't work.
It ONLY doesn't work from this index.php page. If you are on any other page that has the same search on the navigation bar the search works fine. It's just this first page that is not working.
This is also the page that your Theme-It screwed up regarding css and I had to reload the original once already and reconnect it to everything (see previous posts). Would that have anything to do with it? I have compared the code to the original and they are indentical.
Thanks very much

Fix for search form not working

Try editing the search form action on the home page line 96:

<form id="searchForm" method="get" action="/Products_Results.php" >

To:
<form id="searchForm" method="get" action="Products_Results.php" >

This will stop the form trying to post to a file in the root directory of your site which is what's causing your problem.

Yes, Graham is correct, the search on your index page is posting to the results page at:
Products_Results.php?Search=Search&S_ProductName=airbooster


instead of:
Products_Results.php?Search=Search&S_ProductName=airbooster


changing the forms action to:
<form id="searchForm" method="get" action="Products_Results.php" >


will correct this.
