    Hi Enfold Support team,

    I created a custom SEARCH menu item in my main navigation.

    What is the best way to add the ajax search to that menu item when clicked?

    Thank you in advance


    Hey sherissar,

    Is this setting in theme options not working for you?

    Hi Victoria, the theme options search does work, but in this case, the client wants the search button styled differently as per their design.
    Please have a look at the site, you will see what I mean.


    Hi, is this at all possible? To activate the search from a custom menu item button?



    The default ajax search form is added as a tooltip.

    <a href="?s=" data-avia-search-tooltip="
    <form action=&quot;http://localhost/kriesi/enfold/&quot; id=&quot;searchform&quot; method=&quot;get&quot; class=&quot;&quot;>
    		<input type=&quot;submit&quot; value=&quot;&quot; id=&quot;searchsubmit&quot; class=&quot;button avia-font-entypo-fontello&quot; />
    		<input type=&quot;text&quot; id=&quot;s&quot; name=&quot;s&quot; value=&quot;&quot; placeholder='My Search' /></div>
    </form>" aria-hidden="true" data-av_icon="" data-av_iconfont="entypo-fontello"><span class="avia_hidden_link_text">Search</span></a>

    The form is inside the “data-avia-search-tooltip” attribute and it is rendered inside the search menu item container on click. You can find the script in the js > avia.js file, line 50.

    //creates search tooltip
            new $.AviaTooltip({"class": 'avia-search-tooltip',data: 'avia-search-tooltip', event:'click', position:'bottom', scope: "body", attach:'element', within_screen: true});

    Best regards,


    Thanks for the reply Ismael. How data-avia-search-tooltip with the custom menu item?



    That’s not possible in the Apperance > Menus panel but you can use the “wp_nav_menu_items” hook which is the same hook that the theme is using to create the search icon and append it in the main menu.


    Best regards,
