    When URLS are incorrect, a search option appears that lets the user search the whole site.
    GP has very handy ways to disable and enable features.

    I would like to disable search on some websites.

    Is there a way to use simple css or something to simply toggle search function on or off?

    Not sure what you mean? You can just disable search in the customizer?

    Oh I don’t mean search in navigation.

    When visitors go to an invalid url, they get a page (that looks like a biog post) that says “search the site…” and has a search field.

    I’m talking about disabling that one

    Like disabling that page? Then where would it link to when user enter invalid URL?

    I think I need to change the 404.php page

    I would probably delete the code:
    <?php echo apply_filters( ‘generate_404_text’, __( ‘It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try searching?’, ‘generatepress’ ) ); ?>
    </p>
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    <!– .entry-content –>
    <?php do_action( ‘generate_after_content’); ?>
    <!– .inside-article –>
    <?php do_action(‘generate_after_main_content’); ?>
    </main><!– #main –>
    <!– #primary –>

    But how else do I customize it? it shows a list of blog posts…
    I think i would remove the code:
    do_action(‘generate_sidebars’);

    But then how would I add a picture to the header of it?

    do I add code: <?php do_action( ‘generate_before_content’ ); ?>
    <header class=”entry-header”>
    <?php do_action( ‘generate_before_entry_title’ ); ?>
    <?php the_title( sprintf( ‘<h2 class=”entry-title” itemprop=”headline”>‘, esc_url( get_permalink() ) ), ‘</h2>’ ); ?>
    <?php do_action( ‘generate_after_entry_title’ ); ?>
    </header><!– .entry-header –>
    <?php do_action( ‘generate_after_entry_header’ ); ?>

    I’m still not quite sure what you are looking to do?

    Can you link me to a page and list out everything you are hoping to do?

    You can use a plugin like this to build your own 404 page: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/404page/

    That’s probably the easiest method 🙂

    Hi, I just bought this cool template and try to adapt it like the original one. Can you advise me how to turn off the search box on mobile, which I added to the top as a widget? Thank you Milosh

    Hi there,

    could you start a new topic where you can share a link to your site using the Site URL. So we can take a look.
