How to remove Search box in Platform (not Pro!)

8 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I am using Plaform, the free version. Can I remove the Search box from the Header? (I have tried to find this info elsewhere but my search results only show an answer for WHP). If there is no "tick box" option, can I edit one (or more) of the templates? Many thanks, Ivan

Hi Ivan, Can't remember this off the top of my head. But, you couldn't find it in header.php? You may need to use a filter on one of the header functions.

Hi Kate, Thanks for the reply. I looked but couldn't see anything "obvious" in header.php (but that may be me rather than it not being there!). Any other suggestions? Thanks.

If you don't see the option under the Header and Nav options then it doesn't exist in the free version. How do you have access to this forum if you are using the free version?

I simply clicked on "Forum" in my Wordpress Platform Settings and it asked me to register!

I was wondering the same thing. The solution I found was to modify the file themes/platform/sections/nav/section.nav.php Comment out or remove the following line if(!pagelines_option('hidesearch')){ get_search_form(); }

Note that if you modify the file, the modification won't carry over when you upgrade the theme.
