A Discourse plugin that makes the search bar visible in the header in the Desktop UI and hides the search menu icon.
- Only affects Desktop UI. Does not apply to mobile web.
- Is hidden when scrolling on a topic. See Settings.
To install using docker, add the following to your app.yml in the plugins section:
hooks: after_code: - exec: cd: $home/plugins cmd: - mkdir -p plugins - git clone https://github.com/angusmcleod/discourse-header-search.git
and rebuild docker via
cd /var/discourse ./launcher rebuild app
By default, the header search bar is hidden, and the normal search menu icon reappears, when you scroll down on a topic. This is to allow the topic title, category labels and tags to display (aka the 'extra info').
You can override the extra info and have the search input display instead by checking the setting
override extra info in Settings > Plugins.
The search UI suffers from the same issues as the current discourse search UI (as of 12/08/15), namely:
If you enter a search term, then delete it, the search results do not get updated, leaving you with an empty input and the results of your prior search term: http://quick.as/VjbYSqvAG
If you enter a search term, then delete it, then go to 'full page search', a single letter of your prior search remains, on an otherwise blank page: http://quick.as/gLbJu98oX
