I have the Enterprise search sub site and it looks great compared to the standard search included on all default sites.
I would like to have the same functionality except instead of the enterprise search sub site that I currently have, and instead for all search features to be in the root site, according to the following:
1) For the Portal home page, I would like the enterprise search bar to be across the screen, as per screen mockup 1.
2) for all other pages and child sites, I would like the enterprise search bar to be in the header area, as per screen mockup 2.
3) Ideally I would like to remove the Enterprise Search child site as it takes up space in the menu bar!
Questions are how can I start to achieve the above requirements, and is there anything I need to be aware of with my site map?
