    Hello!

    I'm kind of noob with wordpress, and I don't know if what I'm asking is even possible, but let's try :)

    So, first, I love your theme of course, and I'm gonna use it without the sidebar, but the only thing that I would keep from the sidebar is the search box, but I have absolutly no idea of how to have the search box in the menu area. Could you give me some help with this? I would like to have it on the right side of the pink/red bar.

    Thank you ;)

    This is possible, but a more advanced modification if you're not comfortable with code.

    First you'll need to create a child theme for your changes so they don't get overwritten by future theme updates. Then copy header.php from the original theme into your child theme--this will override the original theme's header and menu area.

    Then add the WordPress function get_search_form() wherever you'd like to add the search form--probably within the NAV tag, after the wp_nav_menu() function in your child theme's header.php.

    Then use CSS in your child themes style.css to float the search form to the right (or wherever you want to place it).
