Illdy search widget removal

Please help! I’m building a site using the Illdy theme, but the black square search widget that takes over the entire screen when clicked is simply hideous and I cannot figure out how to get rid of it. I notice on the theme preview shown on colorlib it isn’t there so I am hoping someone can help me out. I’m new to WP, can this be done from within the dashboard or can I modify the theme using dreamweaver?

Hey there,

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

From your Dashboard, got to Appearance > Widgets > Side Bar.
Kindly remove the search widget.

If you’re still having issues kindly provide the URL to your website so we can look at the issue.
In regards to dream weaver, you can find the selector for the search widget and hide with CSS.

Try the code below in the Additional CSS section of the theme.
Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

/*hide search widget*/
div#search-2 {
    display: none;

Best regards,
