Change search text "Type here" and "Search"

How can i change the phrases of the search in the top menu?
Eg. I would like to change the text “Type here” to “ABC” and the text “Search” to “XYZ”.


Hi @daduda,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by using the attached small plugin specially developed for you that contains following custom code.

function colorlib_change_translate_text2( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {
	if (strpos($translated_text,'Type Here') !== false) {
            $translated_text = str_replace("Type Here","ABC", $translated_text);
        } else if (strpos($translated_text,'Search') !== false) {
            $translated_text = str_replace("Search","XYZ", $translated_text);

	return $translated_text;
add_filter( 'gettext', 'colorlib_change_translate_text2', 99, 4 );

Best Regards,
