I'm using Magento 2 and trying to change the header part of the theme. I want the search box next to the logo Title "Electro store" as shown in image also i want to know how to change the css of search box and add a submit button by removing search icon and advance search link.

"Electro Store" Title is CMS Static Block which i've created in admin panel and used below code in /var/www/html/magento226/vendor/magento/module-theme/view/frontend/templates/html/header/logo.phtml,

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('Magento\Cms\Block\Block')->setBlockId('Electro-Title')->toHtml();?>

Below code is showing me search box in header links(next to register and login links),

<move element="top.search" destination="header.panel" before="-"/>

I tried to add float:left; css to block-search class in styles-l.less file,as suggested in this forum Move Search Bar but that's not working. Everytime i run this command php bin/magento cache:flush in terminal it removes the changes in file.

Let me know if anyone have solution or query about question.

  • but i would still like to know how to do with <move> tag without using css
