Adjusting Sticky Widget

This article is general for Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Magento 1, Magento 2. If your store is on Wix, you should look for the appropriate instructions here. In CS-Cart the widget is absent.

What is Sticky Widget?

The Sticky Widget looks like a magnifying glass icon locked in one place, so it doesn’t disappear when a customer scrolls down or up the page.

Adjusting Sticky Widget

The Sticky Widget widget appears by default if there is no search bar in your store.

As soon as you start typing, the Instant Search Widget opens.
