The Search section allows you to include a search bar anywhere on the home page.
Begin by setting the Heading, Text, and Placeholder text.
Similar to the Search bar in the Header section, the settings allow you to:
- Enable live search. When enabled, this allows users to see suggested products based on what they have already typed in the search box. For example, if your store sells pottery and a user enters "ceramic" they might be presented with options like "ceramic mug", "ceramic vase", and "ceramic cream and sugar set". This is a great way of guiding a visitor to results, rather than having them type searches that are slightly off and don't return the results they're looking for.
- Show product images in live search results. When enabled, this will display icon-sized versions of images for products that come up in live search results.
- Show blog posts and pages in live search results. When enabled, this will include results from blog posts and pages in live search results. These results will display in a separate "Pages & Posts" column on the right side of your live search results.
Upload an image of your choosing to give this feature a more customized look. The Position setting will help you select the focal point of the image you use if it's a different size than the feature has room for.
An Overlay can be added as well if that will help make the text more legible over the image. You can choose the color of the overlay, as well as the opacity used.
