Search bar doesn't work since I updated

I updated my wordpress and suddenly my search bar isn’t working anymore. How can I fix this? Thanks.

Hi @elbauldelapsique,

Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.

This can be due to plugin conflict on your site so please try temporary deactivating all plugins and see whether everything works fine and then enable the plugins one by one to see which plugin is conflicting if any.

Best Regards,

Hi Movin,
I tried deactivating my plugins but it didn’t work. I also tried installing the WP Extended Search plugin but it didn’t work either. Is there any other way i can fix this? thanks for your help!

Hi Movin,
Same here…
All the best

Same for me… I only started having this problem after the most recent update to the theme.

I could confirm the issue on my test site therefore notified the theme developer about this so that it will be fixed.

The issue will be fixed ASAP.

In the meanwhile you can try resolving the issue by using the attached modified Activello theme that contains fix for the issue.

File size is too large so here’s the external URL

That fixed the issue! Thank you!

Hi Movin,
thank you so much for your great support!!!
But I could also wait for the developers to fix it, right? They’ll take care of it as you said as soon as possible right ;-)?

All the best

Thank you so much, Movin! I think I’ll wait until the developers fix the problem :slight_smile: and I’m glad my request helped other people as well!


I have the same problem here, but I use a theme chlid because I have modified some things.
Can you explain me what I need to implement in my theme child to fix it ?

thank you so much

I have reported the issue below and it is resolved in the theme but it will become available for you when it will be uploaded and approved on so you have to wait for some time.

In the meanwhile to fix it you can use shared modified activello theme or if you are using child theme then just copy search.php file from shared activello theme and add it in your child theme directory.
