Could you tell me if it is possible to filter items with slider like here:

http://screencast.com/t/tvmumhafug ?

Hi,

It is possible to create slider based filters for numeric custom field values, for example this demo: https://goo.gl/3xODHI

However the filter on the image has multiple labels on the sliders, whereas here it’s only possible to display two numeric values (with prefix and suffix) on the beginning and the ending of the slider track: http://i.imgur.com/5TVmSeZ.png

Could i do a post search within categories (ie: car brand) and subcategories (ie: car model) with dropdowns as in this example: https://usatios.com/ with your plugin?

Hi,

Unfortunately dynamically updating fields are not yet possible to create.

Hi. I am very interested in buying your plugin. I have the following pre-sale questions:

1) I’m using the Woocommerce Product Subtitle Plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wc-product-subtitle/ . Is it possible to search for content in the custom field “wc_ps_subtitle”? Because I tried in the free version, but it does not work.

2) In the vertical list of results (below the search field), the products do not appear, but the product categories do. Is it an error or limitation in the free version?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Both are possible, but also with the free version as well.

1. I just test-installed the subtitle plugin, selected the ‘wc_ps_subtitle’ field on the General Options -> Sources panel, and I’m getting product results based on that custom field.

2. That’s not possible, as the free version only supports returning custom post type objects, nothing else. Something else might be conflicting.

Could you please open a thread in the free version support forums, so I can check these issues? Under the Ajax Search Lite -> Help & Support submenu you will find debug information as well, which will help me checking your configuration.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Hi, I have the theme the7.2 and I’m finding that the Ajax Search Pro will not work. Any insights or possible fixes? Thanks!

Hi,

I’m not aware of any issues with that theme yet, there is most likely something else involved as well (3rd party plugin, modification etc..). I’m guessing it might be a javascript related error. Try the following:

If there is a javascript error somewhere, then these usually help bypassing it. However I still recommend investigating the error source.

If that doesn’t help, then feel free to open a support ticket with temporary log in and FTP details, and I will take a look.

Hi, I’m running a dictionary site, and whenever someone searches for a word that isn’t in the wordpress system i would like to get an option to click a button, get the word written inside the search bar, and send it to my e-mail. How can this be done?

Hi,

With some custom code and using the result templates this should be doable: https://goo.gl/yor6p4

Basically I would put the button into the no-results.php template file, then make some kind of javascript handler to trigger an ajax process, which would handle the mail sending via PHP. It shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours for an experienced developer to do this for you.

(https://ajaxsearchpro.com/woocommerce-search/ ) in woocommerce search example why search results not come in the normal page view, like normal standart wordpress product search. i’m tryn to do this about 3-4 hours but i still have not succeeded.

i mean that, when i finishing the typing, i see some results under search bar, it’s ok but when hit enter or click search, i wanto see results in product listing.

Hi!

You will have to change the redirection URL, as described here in the documentation.

Basically change the Redirect to url? option on the General Options -> Behavior panel to:

?s={phrase}&post_type=product

Others already pointed out, and I’m going to make this easier in the upcoming version to include a redirection to the woocommerce results page option, instead of changing this URL. I understand it’s not intuitive, sorry about that.

Great plugin! Is there a setting where I can enable my Search shortcode in every page, post and WooCommerce product? Thanks, Jos

Hi!

Depending on your needs, you can try:

The first option is usually the best, if the automatic replacement of the default search is supported by your theme.

Is it possible to filter items without entering a search term?

If not, is it possible to modify the plugin to do so?

Hi,

Yes it is actually possible (by default). See this example: https://goo.gl/3xODHI

Pre-Sale questions: At the moment i try to build up a internal social intranet (based on the woffice buddypress theme, which you can find here on themeforest) for my company. The integrated search function is not powerful enough – so i’m searching for a better ajax based search plugin which supports BuddyPress, bbPress and the WIKI-Plugin (which comes with the woffice-Theme).

Does your Search-Plugin supports the following parts:

- Blog Posts - Blog Posts Comments - BuddyPress Members - BuddyPress Member Profiles - Special BuddyPress Member Profile Fields like “Name”, “Department”, “Job-Title” etc. - bbPress Forums - bbPress Forum Topics - bbPress Forum Replies - BuddyPress Groups - BuddyPress Activities - WIKI

Greetings from germany

Manuel

Hi Manuel!

From what you listed, I believe everything is supported. The only thing I’m not completely sure is the WIKI, but if it’s using custom post types to store the wiki articles (it is very likely), then it will work as well.

Also, if by “Special BuddyPress Member Profile Fields” you mean the Extended profiles built into BuddyPress, then it’s also supported.

Great plugin! Really nice to configure! Only thing i am missing is changing (rather disabeling) the opacity on the placeholder text. Maybe via CSS? Mabye you can give me a hint :) Thanks

Hi!

Thank you for yor kind words! To change that, you will need the following custom CSS:

input.orig::-webkit-input-placeholder {
   opacity: 1 !important;
}

input.orig:-moz-placeholder {
   opacity: 1 !important;
}

input.orig::-moz-placeholder {
   opacity: 1 !important;
}

input.orig:-ms-input-placeholder {
   opacity: 1 !important;
}

Please note, that you can’t merge these rules into 1 single rule, it won’t work that way, simply use it as it is :)

I think i’ve found a bug.

The users who have the role ‘winkelmanager’ (shopmanager) don’t exists on the main site of my multisite, but only on a subsite.

When i wan’t to exclude the user role ‘winkelmanager’, the users still show up in the search.

Hi,

Thank you, will look into that.

Hello. Just bought plugin. Trying to make it work on a woocommerce site, but search results includes results from woocommerce order status notes, like: “Order status changed from Pending Payment to Processing”, “Awaiting BACS payment Order status changed from Pending Payment to On Hold”, “Item 4470 variation #4473 stock reduced from 9998 to 9997”. Search result link leads to 404 page. How solve this problem?

Hi!

Based on your description I’m assuming that the shop_order post type might have been selected as result on the General Options -> Sources panel. In case you only need to search products, make sure to only have the product custom post type selected, and the Search in posts and Search in pages option disabled: http://i.imgur.com/EJ2lxn3.png

I hope this helps!

Hello. I found that disabling “Search in comments?” (in Sources field; Regular engine) helps. Thanks.

Hey! can i use this on a multisite?

Hi!

Yes, the core features are compatible with multisite.

Hi, I have the free version and would like to buy the pro version – if you can solve this problem: The search bar floats over other elements, hiding drop down menu items and floating over the sticky menu as I scroll doan the page. Can this be fixed?

Hi!

Sounds like a simple z-index issue, please check this lite version support thread for resolution: https://goo.gl/IkmRqO

Hi, I am not sure whether this is possible but is it possible to integrate Sabai Discuss with ASP? Sabai doesn’t leverage custom post type of Wordpress.

Hi!

I’m afraid in that case unfortunately it’s not possible.
