Hello,

No, there’s no way to put a searchform in a page or post that I know of. I just did a search for a plugin on wordpress.org and didn’t find anything. You could create a simple [searchform] shortcode that did it though from your Child theme’s functions.php or your own plugin pretty easily probably. It would be something like this:

function my_searchform_shortcode() {
     return get_search_form(false);
}
add_shortcode( 'searchform', 'my_searchform_shortcode' );
