Search Bar Widget - How to install it and the customisation available

Created by Aaron Dye, Modified on Sun, 03 May 2020 at 01:01 AM by Aaron Dye

Installing our Widgets with Elementor is quick and easy and no real coding knowledge is required.


I'm going to install the Search Bar Widget on the Home page. Once I've navigated to the page I wish to install it and chosen to edit with Elementor, I simply need to create a new section.



On the left hand side we have lots of different options and we need to scroll down to the HTML section and drag it over to where it says 'Drag widget here'


The HTML section looks like this:



Once dragged across you will see a grey bar with this symbol inside </>. Click in this grey box. 



This is where we will paste the Widget code. 


The widget code is available for Admin and Managers in their Refari account via Refari.co . When logged in, you will see all the side navigation pages.



 You need to click on Widgets and then the widget you wish to install, in this case 'Search Bar'



In the centre you will see an example Search Bar layout and you can scroll down to the 2 buttons Copy and Copy All. Because we are using Elementor, we are able to click on COPY ALL



Clicking on COPY ALL will change this to COPIED!



With this code now copied to our clipboard we can switch back to the Webpage we were editing with Elementor and having clicked on the grey bar with this sign in </>, we can see the HTML Code on the left hand side.



In this box we can simply click and press Control (CTRL) and V to paste the clipboard code. A preview of how the Candidate Registration will look, will appear in your webpage on the right hand side.


You can then click update and the widget is installed and on the page that you were editing.




The Widget Customisations


optionalFields - by default all 3 fields of Keywords, All Categories and All Locations search options will show. Simply remove either 'category' or 'location' if you do not wish to have one/both of these included on your Search Bar widget.


themePalette - whilst this can be customised, we recommend using the Company Branding setup. Here's how: How to set up your Company Branding 


buttonBorderRadius this is how rounded the 2 buttons become. The greater the number entered, the greater the rounding.


hoverColour entered as a HEX Color. The search field will change to selected colour when hovering over.


hoverTextColour - entered as a HEX Color. The search words will change to selected colour when hovering over.


baseUrl- this is explained in its own Helpdesk article which can be read here: What is the BaseUrl and how we can use it?
