The ajax filter is a nice way of organizing portfolio content in the Brook theme. Is there a way that I could add a search bar to the same area?
I would like to add the ability for users to search my portfolio on the portfolio page as well as browsing by filter.
You can build the portfolio via Visual Composer element and add the widget sidebar for the portfolio layout with a search widget to get that.
