Disable Search Box on Forum Index Page?

    Hi all, I am using short code on my forum page, but I have duplicate search boxes on my site.

    http://www.aquariumcarebasics.com/forum/

    My main search box is in the sidebar with is site-wide, and one in the Forum section. I prefer to keep the search box is in the sidebar, as I am using a plugin that will incorporate forum contents in my overall searches.

    Is there any way to disable the search box that appears within the forum on the forum index page?

    I am using a child theme and I would prefer to avoid changing core files because of updates.

    Please let me know, thanks!

    Yes, add this code to your style.css in your child theme

    .bbp-search-form {
     display:none !important;
     }

    Thanks! Worked like a charm!

    Even simpler just disable search in bbPress’ settings

    That’s great if you want to remove search all together. I unchecked it and it even removed the search widget. I was just looking to remove the one in the index page, not the widget area. :(

    The code worked. Now is there a way to remove the text ‘FORUMS’ that was on top of the search bar?

    if you used Robins CSS , remove that and it will show up in the widget area.

    do what Stephen said just disable search in settings>forums so it wont appear in the forum archive page
