    Hi,

    I installed Buddypress to my wordpress site. I have an issue. When i am in a buddypress group and when i am in general activities there are search buttons where are next to RSS feed(wifi icon). Search buttons next to RSS feed are not working. When i inputted a text and clicked the search button nothing changes. What is the logic behind them? Are they working? If they are working, how are they working? If they don’t work, what is the functionality of them? Also if they don’t have any function, is it possible to remove them?

    I wrote longly. Thanks for your explanation.

    Thanks,
    Kerem

    Hi Kerem,
    It is most probably a theme issue. I will suggest asking to theme support for the same.

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thank you.

    In other themes even in the wordpress basic themes like twenty sixteen etc, there is the same problem. In the previous post, I made a mistake. In activity page, search button is working correctly. However, in a buddypress group, search button next to rss feed is not working in all themes that i tried. Is it possible to remove this search button from the buddypress groups? If so, how?

    Thanks,
    Kerem

    Hi Kerem,
    It is a bad idea to disable a feature. My suggestion is to troubleshoot and find the reason.

    Still, if you want to remove it, Put this code in your bp-custom.php

    
    add_filter( 'bp_directory_groups_search_form', '__return_empty_string' );

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thank you.

    This code removes “Search all Groups” button. But I want to remove “Search anything…” button when i am in a specific group. “Search all groups” button where is in the general groups page works successfully but “Search anything…” button where is in a spesific group does not work even in the basic themes. I want to remove that button.(I guess it is #: bp-core/bp-core-template.php:676 button.) How can i remove that?

    Thanks,
    Kerem

    Hi Kerem,
    are you using nouveau template, this should do it.

    
    add_filter( 'bp_group_home_search_form', '__return_empty_string' );

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks a lot. The last code you provided did the job. In that case, i have to remove the select box(it is on the right side) that includes the four options called all, updates, group memberships and group updates. If I remove this select box too, everything will be fine. How can i achieve that?

    Thanks,
    Kerem

    Hi Kerem,
    There is no good way to remove filters. The hooks are ambiguous and will have side effects.

    I will suggest you to either let it be there or use css to hide it or override the group-activity template and remove the filters.

    Regards
