Hi, Robert.

Copy this file:

ROOT/modules/mod_community_toolbar/tmpl/default.php

to:

ROOT/templates/socialize/html/mod_community_toolbar

Edit the file in line 313 an replace this:

<input type="text" id="keyword" name="q" />

with this:
<input type="text" id="keyword" name="q" value="My text" onblur="if(value=='') value = 'My text'" onfocus="if(value=='My text') value = ''"/>

And in line 330 replace this:
<input type="text" id="keyword" name="q" />

with this:
<input type="text" id="keyword" name="q" value="My text" onblur="if(value=='') value = 'My text'" onfocus="if(value=='My text') value = ''"/>

Replace "My text" with any text that fits you. Don't use ", ' and ; .

Confirm if it works for you.

Hi Michal,
Thx for quick reply. But...:
- The file "ROOT/modules/mod_community_toolbar/tmpl/default.php" has only 260 lines?!
- "ROOT/templates/socialize/html/mod_community_toolbar": no such directory exists ?!
FYI: I am using the latest Jomsocial version.

Hi, Robert.

1. Just look for this line: <input type="text" id="keyword" name="q" /> . This file should have 511 lines.
2. Oh, I wasn't clear enough - feel free to create those folders :) (there should be "html" folder, just create "mod_community_toolbar"

Thx, this works.
But the "default.php" file really only has 260 lines ;-)
