Hi,

 

Please see:  https://unretired.co.uk/forum/

I've tried to make the UI as simple as possible & I've disabled the top menu bar in WpForo. Please see screenshot.

I want to retain the search facility.

But I'm finding that the only way to have "search" is to enable "Top Menu".

Any way around this?

Thanks.

There is no way to do this. You should enable back the top bar. Recommend have a menu with Home, Members, Recent Posts, Tags, Register and Login Menus. It's more user friendly and more accessible for users. Keep all clean but don't forget about easiness of usage and accessibility to specific pages your forum. A good UX (user experience) is the most important thing on web page.

In any case if you don't want to have menus, just remove menus, but leave the bar. Then put this CSS code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > Custom CSS Code textarea, save it, delete all caches, navigate to forum front-end and press Ctrl+F5:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap #wpforo-menu {
      background-color: transparent;
}

Many thanks.

Almost got there. It resulted in (see screenshot) vertical separators still visible and on mouseover all the menus become visible.

 

Is that what you expected?
