So this question has been asked before, but... many themes where changed and updated since then and the code is not the same and will not work on my site.
I would like to keep the search bar always open, any one have the code for this mod?
To keep searchbar always visible try the following:
1. Open the theme editor
2. Open header.liquid file
3. Search for element with 'site-header__search-inner' class
4. Add 'search-header__search-inner--active' class to that element
5. Open theme.js file
6. Locate piece of code:
7. Remove it.
