I have noticed that when we add widget on right side column. By defauld we have search option on right in blogengine.

When we enter a search term and try to search anything, it brings no results but we the search pops up again on left column body and we type search term again, then only search works on 2nd try.

Is this a BUG ?

Tested in all themes

I have the exact same problem. The search widget textbox (in the aside area) does not seem to populate the search control textbox (in the content area).

It seems like a bug. But could it be something to do with the theme? I'm using SimpleBlog29.

This can happen if using search in more than one position in a page.
In SimpleBlog theme if you remove the search box from the top, the search in the aside area should work as expected.
You can do a quick test with browser tools by temporarily deleting the search top containing element "<div class="search float-right">

The problem occurs because multiple search boxes all have the same "searchbox" ID, and ID's should be unique.
