    I would like to move the search field from the right sidebar to a permanent place up above the header (next to the social icons).

    Is this possible?


    I am using Coherence as my theme and I suppose it would also be necessary to re-size the field height to match that of the social icons…or visa-versa.

    In WordPress dashboard please go to Appearance > Editor and open Header.php file and search following line


    And right under php closing tag add a new tag called top-search as shown here
    Then add following code to Quick CSS in Coherence theme options under Styling tab and adjust as desired

    .top-search { float: right; margin-right: 70px; margin-top: 15px; }




    You are THE MAN!! Thank you so very much. I’ll just have to do some adjustments to sizes, but this is exactly what I was hoping for. If I have any further questions I’ll ask.

    Take care!



    You are welcome! Glad we could help :)



    Can you tell me where the search bar size and formatting is?

    Also, would it be possible to move the location to the other side of the social media icons?

    Please add following code to Quick CSS as well

    .top-search { float: right; margin-top: 15px; margin-right: -30px; }
    input#s { padding: 6px 40px 6px 10px; }
    input#searchsubmit { height: 30px; }
    #top .social_bookmarks { right: 220px; }

    Should look like this
