Weebly does not offer the feature to display phone number, social icons and search box in the website’s header area. Most of the Weebly themes do not support this option either.

Displaying social icons is definitely a good idea for better user experience. The thing is it’s only can be added within Weebly interface when you have a paid subscription. Here, we’re going to explain how to add it anyway even for free users.

Add Phone Text, Social Icons & Search Box in Weebly Header

Though search box is only applicable for pro users. When you choose any of the new themes and navigate to “Theme” section in the top of your Weebly Site Editor you will not see an option to enable or disable these elements in the header.

Though there are some other alternatives such as adding custom elements like Google custom search box etc, it’s actually quite easy and fast to display default Weebly header elements by modifying source HTML/CSS.

Modifying CSS

By adding the above code in source HTML, it’s sufficient to enable default header elements in Weebly. To customize what you just enabled, you then should add the following code for phone number field and search box in your “main-style.css”.
