    Remove search tool on header

    Hello all,

    I am very new to wordpress and trying to build my site. I want to remove the search icon from the header on my template.  I have selected: Appearance, customize, header, and chose one without the saerch tool.   Saved and published and the search tool is still there.  Tried this with both Chrome and Firefox. Same results.  I feel that the search icon is hard coded...    I have also tried using the disable search plug in.  Which does disable it, but still shows up and does something odd when you click it.  Suggestions??

     

    Also, is there a way to easily add text to my existing header.  I just want to add my business phone number.  There is nothing in the template or wordpress that will let me add it to the header.

     

    Thanks!

    Widgets have been removed from that theme.

    .header__extras {display:none;}

     

    In Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS if you add the line of code above it should hide the search feature

    What you want to look for is Appearance -> Widgets  and then Top Bar / Logo Bar / Header Bar

    The name will vary based on your theme but one of these more than likely has a search in it.

    What is your domain that I can look at the site / where the search is

    I don't believe that template has the ability to do that
