Auto Hiding Search Box

Written by @kerixa 27 August 2020

Sometimes you need to be more creative and makes your websites elements dynamic. For example, by using the following search box, you save the space and show the box only when it is necessary and clicked. Otherwise, it would collapse and hide.

Code Snippet:

                                                <!-- this script is provided by coded by: Kerixa Inc. -->
