Disable the Hub search feature entirely?

Hello, I am looking for a way to turn off the search functionality entirely within my ArcGIS Hub site. We're using the Hub for web hosting a community poetry project, but there is no download or search aspect associated with it. The intended audience is senior citizens and the search is confusing.


The only way I have found to turn it off is to disable Global Navigation, but this disables other functions as well. The site will be Public so losing the login option is not a concern for me, but I worry about other impacts downstream.

Am I missing a setting somewhere? Thank you!

Hi @BrittanyBurson,

Unfortunately I think you got it right - the only way to disable it is by disabling Global Navigation. Since it's easily reversible I'd disable it, and if you see that it impacts other capabilities you can bring it back within a few clicks. 

If this answer solved your question or if you found it helpful please mark it accordingly to help others who have the same question.
