Search Bar always open


Level 1

Hi, I would like to have the search bar pull down menu to be closed as per default. When browsing to our homepage, the search field is open as a pull down menu right away. One has to click on the little "x" to close it. The problem is that the search filed hides a picture that I would like to show. When someone needs to search he can then go to the search bar and it might open. But not as default... See attached photos.


Any idea?

This type of customization would be to be changed at the code level. Many times - a Search bar is coded into a site. Look at the Search bar in the Example Toy Store site here:

See below - if i wanted the behavior you want - i would need to code that. (That may make a good follow up article to this base article).

Here is a good listing of JQeury Search plugins to make more dynamic type of search boxes.
