For the first update, I decided to deliver the search also as an widget. Till now, it is only possible to include a shortcode, in order to display the search. Now, in addition, there will be also a nice widget, which can be placed into sidebars etc.
The idea behind
To create a widget, you basically operate like usually and create a search. But instead of posting a new page with the shortcode
[search-form id="name_of_form"], you go to the Widget Section and Create a new Widget.
You select the Search Form, you want to use and you have to define a page, where the search results will be displayed. On this page, you will have to add the shortcode
So, the widget keeps more or less the same smooth workflow in order to create a search form. The widget already runs quite nicely, but at the moment I am still catching some bugs. So stay tuned, and I hope you will like it.
