Flexible search bar element

The search bar is a flexible component that should be used to search topical content. Each search bar element must have a search field and a submit button, and has the option to have a dropdown menu and a related links stratum.

The background colours that are available for the search bar and their related purpose:

  • cornflower: about, search for contacts (.bg-cornflower)
  • mint: navigation, search for topical content (.bg-mint-10-dark)
  • violet: events, search for an event (.bg-violet-25-dark)

Library search element

This variation is for the library search which uses:

  • .bg-mint-10-dark
  • search field
  • submit button
  • related links stratum
