Removing search options from storefront

Product Search allows your customers to quickly find products in your store by their names, description or SKU. If your catalog is rather small or you have hidden some products in your catalog, you may want to hide the search box in your Ecwid store.

Hiding product search panel

To remove the search option from your store, follow the instructions for your sitebuilder:

To hide the built-in product search in Instant Site:

  1. Open Ecwid control panel → Design.
  2. Click Edit Theme. If you do not have your own theme there yet, click Create Theme, then click Add new CSS theme.
  3. Add this CSS code to your store theme:

.search-icon {
    display: none;
  1. Activate the theme and save the changes.
This instruction works for the regular version of Ecwid Instant Site only. If you're using New-Gen Instant Site, you can disable the search box in the Site Editor.
