adding a search form to an existing hook

Recommended Posts

nfp1900

I already have a hook with a phone number, login link in the pagelines_before_navi but how do I get a search form in there as well? There's nothing in the old docs or the answers about this. 

 

I don't want the search form in the navi as it is causing the menu to wrap, especially on the ipad and this would fix the issue. Link to site is here

"search box" as a shortcode would be a handy. We've got round it in the past by adding a widgetizer with the search and the other bits in a text section. Be interested in an easier way

Search is a core WordPress function and is not something specific to a theme. For example, if we didn't include a search bar in the NavBar or Navi section, that doesn't mean DMS doesn't have search functionality. All it means is that you're going to need to add the WordPress search bar to your theme yourself.

Therefore, if you have an existing hook and wish to add something like a WordPress search bar, you're going to need to review the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_search_form

Hi Danny,

Hi TheSEOGuru

 

Not sure what you mean by whats next, the instructions are on the WordPress code article, you then need to use that function in your hook. Please be aware that hooks are considered advanced customisation and therefore, we are unable to provide assistance.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
