Search banner theme component

This is a component that puts a search bar along with optional headline and subhead text in a banner above the main topic list navigation.

By default this banner appears on all top-level topic pages (latest/new/unread/top/categories… anything in the top menu site setting) but it can also be set to only display on a community’s homepage.

:question: How do I install a theme component?

:sparkling_heart: This very heavily borrows from @angusHeader Search Theme

Available settings

  • Set the headline and subhead text
  • Show the banner on all top-level topic pages (default), just the homepage, or all pages
  • Show the banner for everyone, logged in, or logged out users
  • Set a background image

Custom styling

The HTML element gets a class named .display-search-banner wherever this banner appears, and the banner itself is wrapped with the .custom-search-banner class, so with some CSS you should be able to customize the appearance of this banner however you see fit.

Future enhancements

  • Add an option to enable the banner in specific categories

Incredible work! :sparkles: Suggestion: add an option to hide this theme component from logged-in users (only visible to visitors/non-users).

amazing theme component :star_struck: :heart:

it’d be great if it can be merged into other available banner themes, i.e. Versatile Banner, as an option.

How do we show search banner everywhere page? Every topic, every category? Thank!

I’ve updated the theme component to add some new settings:

show on — this determines where the banner appears and has the options

  • top_menu (latest/categories/top/new/unread)
  • homepage
  • all (all pages except the default search page and admin pages)

show for — this determines who sees the banner

  • everyone
  • logged_in
  • logged_out
