Do you want to add a search bar to your WordPress navigation menu? By default WordPress lets you add a search section to your sidebar, footer, and other widget-ready areas. However, there is a preference for some to have the search option in their menu. In this video, we will show you how to add a search bar to your WordPress menu.

You would first want to check in your theme options area if your theme has one or under Appearance, Customize. If your theme already has this option it would likely already be styled for your theme. If not, you would want to install and activate the Ivory Search plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-search-to-menu/

With it installed and activated, you would want to go to the Ivory Search section added to your admin area. Under Search Forms you can modify what is included in the search should you want to hide certain pages. The plugin even allows you to go under options to change how many posts are on the results page.

Once you've set up the search options you can go to Ivory Search, Settings to enable the search option where you would like it. when going under Select menu it should show you the menu options available to your specific theme.
