Modifying the home template


Hi - is there a way to modify the home template so that only the logo and the search is visible?

I would like to have a template where the logo is on the top and right under it is the search bar (kind of like Google search). How can this be achieved?

Thank you in advance


Anyone know how to do this?

Thank you

I would set discourse on a subdomain/sub-folder and serve a simple static HTML to use as my home page.

See here:

Want <my forum> to have a default view like <my forum>/search

Thank you for your reply! We will try that! Where would I find the code for the “search engine” part?

I wrote it, it’s kinda messy because I just did it to demonstrate, but feel free to use it.


Should I just view source the code on the page? I’m rather new to using Discourse.
Could you provide some instructions on how to implement that single page search engine like yours?

Thank you so much for all your help and time.
