Add a Show/Hide Search Box to the Menu Area of the MH Magazine Lite Theme

Today I’ve come across an interesting question on the WordPress.org support forum: How do I add a toggling search box to the WordPress.org MH Magazine Lite theme?

Here’s a video that shows you how to accomplish this (download .zip file available).

You can freely download and use the demo files for this tutorial.

If you intend to distribute your theme, all strings of text should be translation-ready. Therefore, a better approach to the screenreader text in header.php presented in the video is the following:

_e( 'Click here to display searchbox', 'mh-magazine-lite-child' )
_e( 'Click here to hide searchbox', 'mh-magazine-lite-child' )

The download files have been updated accordingly.
