I recently discovered a bug on the theme directory. The issue revolves around the search bar, which is not functioning correctly. To provide a clearer understanding of the problem, I have attached a video demonstration at this link:

Please take a look at the video to see the bug in action.

Thank you

Thanks for the report! Can you provide the steps to reproduce?

While sharing a video can be helpful it shouldn't be considered as the main source to report an issue because it isn't accessible to everyone.

Hello @dufresnesteven

The search bar works fine in the /themes page but it is not working on the single theme page.

If you visit the page and try to search the theme, the ajax search won't work and we need to hit enter to search the theme. We get the result but the search is not smooth.

When I enter a keyword without a space after it, the resulting URLs redirect to variations that only include one or two words of each keyword.

For example, if I type "fashion" into the search bar and hit the enter key, the expected URL should be "". However, the actual redirected URLs appear as follows:

After the redirect on the search page, the input box does not retain the previously entered keyword for preview or editing.

I hope this information helps you in identifying and resolving the issue. If you require any further assistance or clarification, please let me know.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Best regards,

I think I have it fixed in the previous commit.

Please confirm and reopen if there are any related issues.

I do see there is an inconvenient reload of the content. I don't think it's related but I may take some time to figure out what is causing that.

Thanks again!
