Hello!

I'm using the React theme and am trying to change the default placeholder text in the footer search bar from "Search our store" to just "search." Where can I find this to change it? I'm also looking to change "Search for Products on Our Site" on the main search page. Have looked everywhere but can't seem to find this text. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!

Sincerely,

Joanna

Hi Joanna. Open the Locales folder in your theme editor and open the 'en.default.json' file. Look for the "search" section under "general". http://screencast.com/t/JSjHZw5l
