    Hi, I found your support page explaining how to update the plugin but if I delete it, won’t it delete all my settings as well?
    I spent a lot of time setting this up and don’t want to lose anything. Please confirm the correct way to do it, thanks.

    Hi!

    The options should not be deleted from the databse when you de-activate and delete the current version. If you are concerned, make sure to make a full database and website back-up just in case.

    You can read more about the update methods in the codumentation: https://goo.gl/CNRKHp

    Thank you.
    I have another question which I can’t find the answer for in the documention…
    I want to insert the search bar in my navigation bar (https://mixedmediastore.com.au) so it is visible at all times, as per the mockup attached.
    Could you advised how to do this? My IT team asked if the plugin provides a template function? If it does, they said I can add this code at the end of header.php file.
    Please let me know what to do step by step as I’m not a coder πŸ™‚
    thanks!

    Hi!

    The best way indeed is to use the PHP shortcode (template function), here is a small documentation chapter on it: https://goo.gl/8NlmBq
    Unfortunately I cannot make a step-by-step guide on it, as each and every theme has a different code structure, so there is no exact method that works for all of them. I believe you IT team will definitely know how to place it πŸ™‚

    Another possibility is to use the search as a menu item: https://goo.gl/RxJZf3

    Thanks for your help.
    The first link you gave me says ‘You can find these shortcodes on the same place as the regular ones, on the search settings panel’ however I cannot find this ‘search settings panel’ or that shortcode?
    I use Divi as my theme and the support team may be able to help if I at least give them the shortcode.
    Thanks,
    mimi
    PS: I tried it in the search menu but it didn’t look good/work well πŸ™‚

    Hi!

    You can find those advanced shortcodes by clicking on the ‘Toggle shortcodes for search’ panel:

    Yes, correctly placing it to menus can be a nightmare, as menus are just as different in each case as themes, and mostly made for only displaying simple text or some graphics. That’s the reason why this feature (shortcode as menu) was not implemented until now.

    Best,
