Modifying search parameters, changes are not effecting HELP!

Recommended Posts


i am using the standard classic template (default)

I want to change the search bar parameters such as , form action, placeholder, etc.

I have found the file:


it contains the following:

<!-- Block search module TOP -->
<div id="search_widget" class="col-lg-4 col-md-5 col-sm-12 search-widget" data-search-controller-url="{$search_controller_url}">
	<form method="get" action="{$search_controller_url}">
		<input type="hidden" name="controller" value="search">
		<input type="text" name="s" value="{$search_string}" placeholder="{l s='Search our catalog' d='Shop.Theme.Catalog'}" aria-label="{l s='Search' d='Shop.Theme.Catalog'}">
		<button type="submit">
			<i class="material-icons search">&#xE8B6;</i>
      <span class="hidden-xl-down">{l s='Search' d='Shop.Theme.Catalog'}</span>
<!-- /Block search module TOP -->


But when i change this code, it does not effect my searchbar.

even when i delete this code, my searchbar still works. so i assume this is not the correct way to modify the search bar?

what is the correct file???
