Search on mobile devices - suggestion


#1

If it possible to add search to the mobile navigation bar, right below the menu? The current placement of search in mobiles looks pretty, but I think it’s not easy to find for a new user. (it has to scroll a bit to find it).


#2

Which menu? Are you talking about the header with the logo?

I disagree, similar behavior is seen for the address bar on mobile browsers. People scroll a lot on mobiles, they will know where the search is.

Btw, we are revamping the mobile navigation

I would like to keep my suggestion to have search on the menu. I myself was not finding the search bar when I initially navigated and my first try was to go to the navigation menu. I now know where it is because I have to navigate on my website a lot. But normally I never look at the top of the page.


#4

My problem with having the search there was there is not enough room (on 320px wide screens), but since the world has moved to larger devices, maybe we can accommodate it.
I will see what I can do.

The AMPfor WP plugin has a nice search bar inside the menu.


#6

A search box and social media icons are already on our roadmap :slight_smile:


#7

When Adsense auto ads is active, an anchor ad on top of page may cover the search bar.
