To make a hook, you'll want two plugins.
First, the Action Map Plugin, which will help you identify which hook to use. It displays the various places on your site that you may want to adapt. The plugin is free from our Store under Plugins > Top Free.
Next you'll want the Hooker Plugin, also found in Store > Plugins > Top Premium. (It's free for Plus Members). Hooker lets you simply select the hook you found with Action Map, then paste the code you wish to use, and save. It writes the code properly. Just remember to wrap your code in a unique class.
Unfortunately, the search can't be implemented, as far as I know, via a hook. However, if you have an AdSense account from Google, or can get search code from them, you can implement a Google search in its place. Not as pretty, but effective. Optionally, you can use an alternative font for your menu, making room for the search built into the menu.Go to the full post
