Hello wpdreams,

I’ve used your plugin for over a year now, and it always worked well. But as of recently the search bar has become extremely slow when searching for more than one word.

You can see it for yourself on cartridgecity.nl try for example: “HP 302” or just “302” or “Canon MG5650” or just “MG5650”. The single word search jobs are quickly, but the multiple words search jobs are extremely slow.

I’ve tried everything in the setting. It now runs on the index table engine. But the problem also shows up when I use the regular engine. Hope you can point me in the right direction.

Thank you for your time.

Hi!

I quickly tried the search on the site, but I got response within 2 seconds every time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDRP8jP5joo&feature=youtu.be

This might indicate a server related issue, but without more information I’m not able to tell. There are however a few things you can do to make the search even faster, check this link to the documentation. I suggest checking points 1.3 and 2.1.

If you want, feel free to open a support ticket and I will investigate it further, to see if there is anything else related.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

1. I added search bar (theme: Minimal Black) in the menu using shortcode. It shows but its too small (wide) how can I make it wider? and… 2. How to hide it on homepage and show on all other pages?

3. How to make titles smaller and titles background color transparent? 4. How to enable middle mouse button click to open post in new tab? Thanks! “https://pageshot.net/bnmBy15mR0RATyD8/freeimages.dev”

Hi,

1. On the Theme Options -> Overall box layout panel you should change the width to a pixel value (like 300px), instead of the default ‘100%’: http://i.imgur.com/tCqMsIJ.png

2. If you use the PHP search shortcode, you could change it to check for the front page first, something like this:

<?php if ( !is_front_page() ) echo do_shortcode('[wpdreams_ajaxsearchpro id=1]'); ?>

Make sure to change the shortcode ID in this code to the search instance you have.

3. I’m assuming you are using the isotopic layout. The fonts can be changed on the Theme Options -> Typography panel. To change the title/content background use this option: http://i.imgur.com/GXBn0lM.png

4. Looks like this is a yet unkown bug that nobody noticed yet. I will make sure to fix it for the upcoming release. Until then, you can try the following resolution, by placing this code to the functions.php file in your active theme directory:

add_action( 'wp_footer', 'asp_echo_additional_scripts', 9999999 );
function asp_echo_additional_scripts() {
   ?>
   <script>
    jQuery(function($){
      $(".asp_main_container").on("asp_results_show", function(event, id, instance, phrase) { 
        console.log('wadupp');
        $(".asp_item_overlay").on("mousedown", function(e){
            var link = $('.asp_content h3 a', $(this).parent());
            if (e.which == 2) {
                link.attr('target','_blank');
                link.get(0).click();
            }
        }); 
      });
    });
   </script>
   <?php
}

In future, please use the support system, as this comment section is very inconvenient for answering questions :)

Hi I would like to buy this for my avada theme now my colour are a teal colour can I change the of the search box and can I used your plugin as a filter search for a business directory I would like to also send you an attachment just so you can see what I mean

Hi,

The plugin colors are fully adjustable, you can try it on the back-end demo if you want to on this url.

Filters are possible to make based on taxonomy terms or custom fields. I’m guessing the businesses in the business directory are custom post types (?) and they are categorized in some way. If that is the case, it should be possible to use those categories as a filter.

Hello. Fantastic search plugin for WP. I have some questions:

1- Where does the image that appears in the results come from? The question I formulated, because in his demo, when I enter the post, not image is seen.

2- How complicated can it be, adding a [short_code] in each result? Is it possible to add this function? Something like this: https://k61.kn3.net/A/9/A/A/8/1/18E.jpg

The intention is to add an external link.

3- According to the previous image, you can reduce the size of the images, and add 9 results, instead of 6?

Hi,

Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate that.

1. There are multiple, adjustable sources you can choose from. On the demo it’s the featured image, it’s just visible on the actual page.

2. Yes, with a small custom filter code it should be possible. Something based off of these examples, but even much simpler.

3. Yes, it is possible to change the result width and height as well for that layout, and also to change the rows count: http://i.imgur.com/97Dubjn.jpg

The columns count are automatically calculated based off of the results width, in this case it’s 3. Also, the result width is not fix, the script will try to maintain around the given width, and adjust the rows count to that, to always fill the area.

Ernest Marcinko

Thank you for your response and disposition for solutions.

Hello, I have a problem with displaying admin pannel of the plugin. Everithing is on top of others.

Hi,

There is most likely a 3rd party plugin or theme overriding the styles or conflicting the scripts – it’s only a guess, I can’t tell without seeing the issue. Unfortunately some developers carelessly load their plugin styles even if not their plugin page is active.

I usually recommend disabling the plugins one by one (and temporary changing the theme) to see if the conflict disappears at some point. Then if the conflicting plugin is located, you can keep it inactive until configuring the search.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Hi, Thank you for response but the problem is in the admin panel where no theme is installed. The plugin works perfectly but i cannot configure it very well because of all the text and menus ar on top of each other. I can send you some print screens. Thank you.

Hi,

I understand, and I’m talking about the administrator panel as well. It is very likely that another plugin or the theme loads up it’s stylesheets or scripts where it is not supposed to – this would explain the issue. It’s not uncommon unfortunately, and impossible to prevent. If you try my suggestion, you might find out if this is the case, and if so, then which plugin is it.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

and can you have a three column box with keyword , location , categories and go as horizontal

Hi,

The search results can be redirected to the default results page as well. As for the three column, it could be possible I guess, if the location is also a taxonomy term (category of some sort).

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

I have a concern. Apparently your plugin does not work with phrases. My page in construction is of music, so the only search is the title of the post (name of the artist/group and the name of the song), which usually usually add 3 words that can be very common in songs. Exist any suggestion?

Yes, that is possible.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Then we’re fine. Soon I will be buying your plugin.

A couple of recommendations for a new update :)

1- Personally, when I do a search in google, I usually click the middle mouse button to open the results in another tab. By doing this in your plugin, the results are closed.

2- A help button, to guide and recommend to visitors for an effective search. It could appear the help, where the results come out, something like this: https://k61.kn3.net/4/1/6/0/7/9/ED1.png

Thx! Happy sales!

Thank you for your suggestions!

Hello, My developer installed the plugin, but doesnt works good. When click for a search, the box is too short. How can he fix it? Look in the left top corner. https://portamedalhas.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Capturar.png Thank you, Bruno

Hi,

It looks like the stylesheets are missing. Make sure to clear your website cache on all levels (page, minify, asset, browser, CDN, Cloudflare etc..) after saving the options.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Also, in menu positions it’s often advised to change the search width to a pixel width instead of the default 100%: http://i.imgur.com/tUDPbgd.png

Hello, i want to make a filter like in your demo the “property search” for my real estate agency site, but i would know before i buy it, how i set up the “price” and “square meter” sliders.  I use the impreza wordpress theme, do i need other plugins? I understand how to set up the checkbox but the slider? I do it in tags or categories ?

Hi!

The sliders on that demo are based on custom field (post meta) values. These filters work with numeric values, so the custom field must contain a number only. Here you can find detailed documentation and a video tutorial on how to create custom field based filters.

HI, I’m working again on a buddypress member search project

A) I understood that it was necessary to create an ACF field (attached to the member) to sort down the numerical value of this field ( https://codecanyon.net/item/ajax-search-pro-for-wordpress-live-search-plugin/3357410/comments?page=68&filter=all#comment_15711708 ) .

B) I then put the name of the field in the sort by custom field descending for “member_rech-rang” type numeric in [General options / ordering] https://framapic.org/CNgSyN0QW8cz/KShEO3gLMeI3.png

I forgot or make a mistake? This seems to work well for articles.

Regards

Hi,

Sorting user search results by custom field value is not possible, as by default Users are not post type objects, therefore by default they can’t have post meta values. Making and ACF field is not going to solve this, as the results are users, and not custom post types.

HI,

Thank you for your prompt response. So I did not understand your suggestion. I am very disappointed because it is on BP members that I need to do research. I bought your plugin for this. I hope you can find a solution soon

Presale Question: I was trying to copy/paste the results from the searcher but unable to do it. Is there any way to make copyable this preliminar results? Thanks in advance

Hi,

Do you mean selecting the results with the cursor and then copying it? It is prevented actually with CSS, as it might cause problems with mobile devices. The overlay and the selection can be turned off for the vertical results layout with this custom CSS:

.results * {
    user-select: initial !important;
}
.overlap {
  display: none !important;
}

For other layouts this might not work, as they are structured differently.

Hello I would like to evolve a function that I put in place which consists of taking the title of the page in progress in the search bar. I put this code in the functions.php file and I do not want to apply it to certain templates or pages.

// prefilled input search ajax search pro add_filter( ‘asp_print_search_query’, ‘asp_change_search_text’, 1, 1); function asp_change_search_text( $text ) {

if (is_page_template(‘template-home.php’) || (‘404.php’)) { // or whatever other condition you like remove_filter( ‘asp_print_search_query’, ‘asp_change_search_text’ ); return $text;

} else {

$s = get_the_title(); if ( !is_wp_error($s) && !empty($s) ) return $s; return $text; }}

it’s work only for the first template but not for error 404 template

I don’t understand why. Will anyone have the solution ?

Thank you but I have expressed myself wrong in my question, how to make disappear the text “search here ..” when the user clicks in the search bar ?

Hi! Im trying to use the search like this (http://www.islacatavinos.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/search.jpg) in all pages except one, i´ve created the search but i dont know how to show it in all pages, could you help me? Thanks!

Hi!

I believe you will find all the information for that in the Compact search box layout section of the documentation (includes video tutorial).

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

hi! Yes, i found it there! Thanks!

When using other search plugins, it display the Visual Composer shortcode. Does this plugin parse that and make it look “normal?” Also, will it display the featured images as shown in your demo with most themese?
