    I’d like to add my search widget to my top nav bar (light blue w calendar of events page) but can’t quite find out how to do so. Is this possible?

    Hi Toby

    It might be worth trying this plugin out before we dive into a child theme and custom widget area: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bop-search-box-item-type-for-nav-menus/. Let me know how it goes.

    I really like this add on, just wished there was some documentation about how to edit the appearance, etc. Really need that search field and button on the same line.

    Sure, let’s try:

    .bop-nav-search {
    	margin: 1px 0;
    }
    
    .bop-nav-search label,
    .bop-nav-search .search-submit {
    	display: inline-block;
    	font-size: 13px;
    }
    
    .bop-nav-search label {
    	margin-bottom: 0;
    }

    now I’m wondering…any way to customize the search returns? They seem a bit odd…

    If you edit say this page, have you manually entered an excerpt of three periods?

    I’m sorry, not exactly sure what you’re asking. I’m not sure where the three periods are coming from.

    Edit the page, click Screen Options top right, is the Excerpt field enabled? If not, enable it, scroll down to the Excerpt field, is there anything in it? Mmm probably not, this might be an auto excerpt issue when using Page Builder. Will probably need to come back to you on this one tomorrow.

    If you manually enter an excerpt it’ll sort this out. I’ll come back to you tomorrow with an auto solution.

    Sure, that’s fine…sometime tomorrow would be great.

    Don’t see an option for an Excerpt field…

    My bad, that’s for posts. Clearly working too late. Let me work something up tomorrow. Chat then!

    Hi Toby. Can you please, check that the following setting is enabled:

    Settings > Page Builder > Content > Copy Content

    Sorry, it’s taken me a while to get back to this…yes, it’s enabled. However, I get the same result.
