can I overlay the search bar over an image? like homepage image. Also can I use this as a zip code search bar. For example the client enters zip code to see if we service that area? thanks!

Hi,

Well you can put the shortcode wherever you need. Usually page builder plugins have the capability to add background image to the container elements, where you can add the shortcode afterwards.

For the zipcode to work, that needs to be stored as either a custom field, or taxonomy term, and the plugin could then return the relevant posts or post types.

Hi, Thank you for the great plugin! We have the same issue as posted recently : Hi,

We have a problem with Ajax Search plugin, that only happens when you are in private or incognite mode and in not primary languages.

We use WPML to Languages. In our case Spanish is the first language and French and English secundary.

In Spanish everything works correctly, but in English and French when you enter something in search field, results URL is not translated (https://prnt.sc/t4abgs). If you go to search list page, use correct URL https://prnt.sc/t4acdy

Why happens this?

I think it only started to happen recently. I can’t open a new support ticket, I hope this could be helped?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

It appears to be an issue with WPML API. We are contacting them to resolve the issue.

Hi,

I have a custom post type “Hotels” created with ACF and I need to show on ajax dropdown search results the custom post archive Link.

When I search “hotel” I’m only getting the hotel results and not the archive link.

Can you help please?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

Unfortunately post archives are not possible to display as results. You can search taxonomy terms, and the plugin will return the archive link to them.

Hi. Ajax Search Pro and Hide My WordPress plugins are conflicting when the “Minify HTML” is disabled. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi,

I suggest opening a support ticket with this. Probably the other plugin is at fault, but I can check the output if you want to.

Can you only include TAGS from the selected custom post type?

Hi Ernest. Thanks for getting back. I actually figured out how to filter out TAGS that aren’t attached to my custom pot types.

On another note. How on earth can i replace the icons with font awsome? I do this for all my installs, Woocommerce but i just cannot replace the icons from the search

all the checkboxes on the filter function

That needs some extensive custom CSS, and probably changing some class names as well in the filter template files. The front-end filters templating feature may help adding required CSS classes, and then you can construct a custom CSS to override.

Hi…need quick helping hand :) Running website which is business directory. Business category are of course in this case my taxonomies. I’m trying to create search page which will work only within one category (taxonomy) Everything is almost done but somehow I can’t get what I’m expecting. Please let me know if it’s possible to do search inside posts content ONLY within specific category

Let me explain why it’s so important for me. I made huge mistake while I started working on this this business directory. I didn’t create unique taxonomy for “location” and now have to find a way how to search/sort businesses by location..

Now I have over 1000 businesses in my directory and I figure it out that is necessary that results needs to be filtered by location. Since location is mentioned only in post content (business address) Im wondering if your plugin can also work this way Thank!

....What option I should check if I would like to search within whole post content? I can find only title field/page/cpt/custom field/description field. I think that’s what I’m looking for. Thanks….

Hi,

You can enable the search in contents under the General Options -> Sources panel.

Is there a way to highlight the string or words for the search terms you used in the result page? Or better yet, upon clicking on the search result, can we make the page to scroll on the searched phrase or words? Example, I search “DOG”, can we scroll to the section of the search results that mentions the word “DOG”? this is helpful if the result page is very long and the reference is at the bottom part of the page. Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately that is not yet possible.

Hi,

is there any elastic search solution ready for ajax search pro? Or in development and soon would be rolled out..? I’ve seen a lot of comments on this, but nothing till the end…

Hi,

It is not planned in the near future. There are only 5 comments about elastic search in the past 6 years. If we decice to make an elastic based solution, it might be done as a separate product instead, as this one serves different purpose, and most features might not be possible via elastic search.
