    My site http://www.tombridger.co.uk is using the graphene theme.

    Im looking to remove the RSS Feed Icon and the Search Bar at the very top of each page.

    There are no options to remove this and I was wondering if anybody knew what I would need to do to remove it.

    Thanks for any help you might have.

    you can comment out

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

    In your style.css file, go to #top-bar, then add display:none.
    Check the code in the following link.


    In your case the style.css is located in /wp-content/themes/graphene/style.css

    It would be better to make changes in a child theme rather than edit the original css. If you use a child theme then when you update Graphene to the new version your changes won't be overwritten.

    Hi - same question as adrstuart - I see that his blog no longer has the RSS/Search bar, so it looks like the code changes work.

    I'm brand new, so bear with me:

    I followed the /wp-content/themes/graphene/style.css link to edit my css, but it seems to be read only. How can I make changes?

    I've submitted this functionality as options for the theme to Syahir. And I think they will be available in the next release.

    Options are:
    - Hide complete top bar (above the Header image)
    - Hide the feed icon
    - Set the location of the search box (options: top bar (default), navigation bar or the side bar)

    Thanks ThumNet: they're all there, your suggested changes!
    Nice to have!
