  • I would like to know this too. I am using 2011 and when I turn off the header text it causes my search box to cover my entire menu. This only seems to be a problem in IE. I use Firefox and it works fine.

    Go to ‘Appearance > Editor > Header (header.php)

    Find the following close to the end:

    <?php get_search_form(); ?>

    Remove it, or, replace it with the follow:

    <!-- <?php get_search_form(); ?> -->

    Then click ‘Update File’

    well that got rid of it in Firefox but it still shows up in IE and is still covering the menu.

    Try clearing your browser cache.

    well I have changed the settings to include the text up and changed them back and it is showing the changes I have also used ctrl+f5 and that is not working.

    Ok I deleted the browsers cache and tried it all again. Now the search bar isn’t covering my menu but it is still there. That solves my problem but not the original posters problem.

    got it figured out. There are two instances of:

    <?php get_search_form(); ?>

    Replacing them both got rid of it completely

    <div class=”only-search<?php if ( ! empty( $header_image ) ) : ?> with-image<?php endif; ?>”>
    <!– <?php get_search_form(); ?> –>
    </div>
    <?php
    else :
    ?>
    <!– <?php get_search_form(); ?> –>

    Thanks SO much you two. Followed your posts and was able to fix absolutely painlessly! 🙂 These forums are really a God send for a novice and I believe I can speak for a vast number of WP users, we all THANK YOU all for taking precious time to pass along your knowledge.

    Hmm, That was very helpful. Although my nav menu is still acting like there is a search there (it’s pushing my nav menu items into a new row, even though it appears to have plenty of space left). How do I take the search removing to the next level?

    Edit: I got what I wanted by just deleting the search div:

    <div class="only-search<?php if ( ! empty( $header_image ) ) : ?> with-image<?php endif; ?>">
    <!-- <?php get_search_form(); ?> -->
    </div>

    Just used this too, months later. Thanks!!

    Hello, I am very new to this.

    Can I literally delete this?
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>

    And replace with this?

    <div class="only-search<?php if ( ! empty( $header_image ) ) : ?> with-image<?php endif; ?>">
    <!-- <?php get_search_form(); ?> -->
    </div>
    <?php
    else :
    ?>
    <!-- <?php get_search_form(); ?> -->

    thank you so much for your help!

    I am trying to remove the search header in Creativix, as it blocks my site name and tag line. In appearance/headers there is no opportunity to mess with code.

    site is http://www.alisonkrupnick.com

    Please help, as this is preventing my site launch.

    Thanks.
