We’ve removed the search icon from non-blog Kinja.com pages. This includes the dashboard, manage pages, the editor, kinja.com landing page, etc. This does not affect personal or community blogs.
We’ve made this change because the new search experience makes it possible to search multiple sites or the entire Kinja network. Prior to our search redesign, the only place to search the entire Kinja network was on a non-blog Kinja.com page.
Our engineering team is crazy about code maintenance and saw this as a great opportunity for clean up catharsis.
