I want these things done for a single subsite. I needed to do some special things with searching on the site that involved basically breaking the default, built-in search box. But it still shows up. What's the simplest way of getting this box to not load (on the main page and in all the document libraries for this subsite).

This is also the only site I'm aware of using the Oslo template. I'd like "Home" gone. Anyone know of an easy way to accomplish this? Thanks.

  • Both the links are invalid.

  • Are you using a separate sub site or the same one as the rest of your site collection? If you're using the same one you'll have to put jQuery on each page otherwise you can just edit the master page.

If you just want to remove the default search box, you may try hiding this search box element.

#SearchBox {

For Home/Edit also you can identify the elements and then do the same or edit the masterpage for removing the elements.

  • Agreed. CSS is the easiest way to remove the search bar - and it really doesn't talemuch to implement :)
