    For some reasons, guest visitors can’t see the search field. Where the hell is it?

    How do I activate it?

    The theme does not have a search field.
    You can put a search widget into the footer.



    interesting but thanks for your reply.

    One thing you can do pretty easily is add an anchor link to the search widget into the menu, which is what I did on my site.

    To do that, at Appearance > Menus in your site’s Dashboard, add a Custom Link:

    1. For Navigation Label, enter a 🔍 emoji.
    2. For Title Attribute, enter “Search”.
    3. For URL, enter only #search-3 and save.

    The anchor link may be different depending on your widget order. To find the anchor link, right-click the title of the search widget, choose inspect element, and look for the section ID. In my case, it was:

    <section id="search-3" class="widget widget_search">

    If yours was <section id="search-4" class="widget widget_search">, for example, you’d enter #search-4 for the menu item’s URL.

    For more info on working with menus, see:



    The emoji idea is excellent. Will try this. Thanks!
