I have read about the

  • forceCommunity:themeLayout

  • forceCommunity:profileMenuInterface

  • forceCommunity:searchInterface

    I have implemented them in one of lightning component. I used forceCommunity:themeLayout interface and able to customize my pages in Napili template, but i didn't find any code on how to use the profileMenuInterface and searchInterface.

Any help on this will be helpful

  • The "Use a custom search component" option is not in Community Builder-> Settings -> Theme anymore with Spring 17. I can still create the component but I don't see where I can select it. Feb 22, 2017 at 16:20

Profile and Search interface represents the header search and profile components. To use it, you should go to Community Builder-> Settings -> Theme and check * Use a custom search component * Use a custom user profile component

And select the custom components you already created implementing those interfaces
