Earlier versions of the Searchanise app don’t have a built-in search bar. Instead, the Sticky Widget is used. To see the app’s search bar, upgrade the app to the latest version in the Wix admin panel > Apps > Manage Apps.

What is a Sticky Widget?

The Sticky Widget is used instead of the search bar in the app’s earlier versions.

The Sticky Widget looks like a floating icon that follows customers as they scroll. Clicking it opens a search bar on top of a page.
