Blogger Search Box Doesn't Work

This works:

You can add another search box (and delete Blogger's version)

In Design mode:
1. Click "add a gadget".
2. Scroll down to html/javascript and select "add to blog"
3. Paste this code:

<form action="/search" method="get">
<input name="q" type="text"/>
<input value="Search" type="submit"/>
</form>

4. Save.

Thanks to davidchin38!

NOTE: If your Blogger blog is not public that is another reason why the Google powered search box does not work.
