I want to remove the search box from the portal. After doing some research I found some useful guidance that this is possible using jquery. I tried to implement the jQuery in the Home Page components but with the new version there is no html check box available. any ideas on how I can do this?

  • @sfdcfox - Is that option still available given the removal of javascript from the sidebar?

  • No, and that's why I asked about a link. Since we now have less control over the UI, I'm pretty sure we cannot remove search these days. Kind of silly, restricting us from turning off a feature.

As of February 2019, some themes in the Community Builder allow you to hide the search component.

Theme > Theme Settings > Hide the global search component in community header

Not all themes allow this. Customer Account Portal is an example of a theme that does allow it.


I believe there are only 2 ways to do this today. One is to disable chatter for the partner/community profiles (may not be what you want). The other is to create a custom Header with your own HTML and/or image file.
The downside of option 2 is you need to "roll your own" header for everything else you might want, including links/buttons for logout and profile settings, etc.

Here is some sample code that might get you started:

<style type="text/css">
body{ margin: 0px; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Sans-Serif; }
