With the Dominion theme selected in 2.0.0 - 100, the "global search" and institution name choices do not appear when you click into the search box. However, the radio buttons appear and the search feature seems to work as expected otherwise. It is fine with the Archives Canada theme.
This seems to be a CSS issue, since the text appears in the HTML source. Screenshot attached.

Unfortunately I'm still seeing this after our local copy was updated (same as screenshot above).
Revision is b7015aea1c80047edc142fe15bd1968160131488 (and other recent changes are showing up).
I cleared cache and also tested on a machine where I hadn't previously used our test instance. Seen in Firefox 23, IE 8, and Chrome 29.

Please let me know if you need any other information.

Hi Tim!

You need to rebuild the CSS each time you pull new changes in your local repo.

cd /plugins/arDominionPlugin
cd /plugins/arArchivesCanadaPlugin

You're going to need (in npm/nodejs) and make. It's explained somewhere in ica-atom-users if you want to go there and look it up.

Thanks for testing! :)

Thanks, Jesús. I actually just clued into that after coming across another CSS issue which hadn't changed.
