Vanishing Search Box

I have noticed that clicking on the magnifying glass causes the search box to disappear. Looking a bit further into why I think the ItemAdvancedSearch link is incorrectly printed as

<a href="http://www.awebsite.com/ItemAdvancedSearch" class="kicon kicon_widget-search"></a>

but I think maybe this was intended

<a href="http://www.awebsite.com/ItemAdvancedSearch"><class="kicon kicon_widget-search"></a>

If so where to change the code?

Re: Vanishing Search Box

Dashboard / System / Displays / Skin Widgets
and go to the Search widget
Change the Icon Collapsed Display to Icon Extended Box

It is supposed to do this!

Re: Vanishing Search Box

Yes, it's supposed to to that.  If you don't want this type of behavior, there's a way around it by scripting windowload events in a js file in your skin.  You can basically override any default behavior onwidnowload, onscroll and onreisize (all the events that may impact displays).

Re: Vanishing Search Box

OK thanks. Not been to that part of the setting before but it was already set to Icon Extended Box Display. The only one I found that works is Content Only - Inline Display. That removes the icon but it doesn't resolve the underlying problem of the search box disappearing if the icon were there to click on.

See what happens when you click on the spyglass in the desktop header at

Re: Vanishing Search Box

I cannot think of any reason why you would want the search box to disappear. If clicking it took you to advance search that would make sense.

Re: Vanishing Search Box

have you tried content inline display. This will just show the search box, no collapsing or expanding or icon.

Re: Vanishing Search Box

In collapsed mode, you would want to click the icon to expand it, or contract it.

Re: Vanishing Search Box

Is there a reason why you would ever want the search box to disappear when viewed on a desktop?  Is this feature there in order to be utilized on small screens?

Re: Vanishing Search Box

It's more of a feature where if you just wanted to display the icon and have it appear when you click it.  To slim down the design.
