This may need to be a feature request but, is it possible to have the advanced search over maps/sliders with a “closed and docked” option rather than automatically opening?
As an example, it would be nicer to have the option to close and dock (to top) the advanced search feature when used with sliders, but still be available for use.
1) Still want the advanced search feature readily available.
2) Don’t really want to have to manually “reduce” it by docking when I really want to show slider galleries first and foremost.
Maintain the option for Advanced Search over Slider = YES/NO
Default Open on Slider = YES/NO
If differentiating between Sliders and Maps is problematic, then a universal Default Open = YES/NO would be ok.
We actually did this in the new theme we are working on.
In WPESTATE these features are a little more complicated because we added so 4 Advanced Search options and now we would have to go over all development to customize it as you described, for all advance search options.
