Search box not coming in magento 1.9 porto theme

Hi,
I have installed and configured Algolia search Extension of Magento. My magento version is 1.9 .Everything is configured successfully. but the search option in Home Page is not coming.

if i enable Allow Symlinks to “Yes” the search page is coming but with alignment issues. can you kindly guide how to solve this issue .?

We are using porto theme.
website is banta.com.kw

Hello @banta,

in order to make the extension work, you have to enable symlinks.
The alignment issues can be solved by updating your CSS to work with the extension.

The extension comes with CSS which suits most of Magento themes, but it cannot handle everything. So in your case you’ll have to write some custom CSS to have everything aligned. Is it doable for you?
