Support » Theme: Pique » search field in the sticky menu

  • I really like this theme. But I lack a search field in the menu bar. It would be perfect to make it work as in your theme called “Gazette”. Is there any way to add it?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi @lustek,

    It is possible to add a search bar alongside Pique’s main navigation, however, the steps involved do require some level of HTML, PHP, and CSS knowledge.

    The first step is for you to set up a child theme.

    In case you’re unsure, the following guides provide a good introduction to child themes, including steps to set one up:

    After you have completed that step, copy the parent’s header.php file to your child theme’s directory and then open it in your favourite text/code editor.

    You’ll find two instances of the following code in that file:

    <nav id="site-navigation" class="main-navigation" role="navigation">

    Both sets of code define the site’s navigation and you’ll want to add your search bar by the ending </nav>.

    To add the search bar, you can make use of a WordPress function called get_search_form():

    get_search_form()

    You may also like to look at Gazette’s header.php file to see how that theme makes use of the above function:

    Hope that helps to point you in the right direction!
