How can I add something (like a search box) to my navigation menu?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

The default search bar in Navi isn't really working for me. It's too hidden so users cannot find it and also it's hidden on mobile. So I'd like to add my own. How can I use functions.php to add items to the menu?

 

I tried

 
add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'your_custom_menu_item', 10, 2 );
function your_custom_menu_item ( $items, $args ) {
    if (is_single() && $args->theme_location == 'navi_nav') {
        $items .= '<li>Show whatever</li>';
    }
    return $items;
}

but I couldn't make it work.

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

If you do not like how the Navi search field/bar looks, just override its styling, thats all that is. If you remove all the styling it will just look like any other search bar. Also, the search bar is hidden on mobile devices as it is on the mobile menu.

Thank you again Danny. This seems like a good and very simple solution. Shouldn't be working too tired I suppose... :)

      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!
