Hello Author, I want to know if it can display members directory from WordPress ARmember Plugin?

Hello,

I’m interested in your plugin. I installed the lite version yesterday in order to see how the plugin works. However, the plugin generated a huge amount of error logs on my server disk space and database, that the website stopped working. The database limit got exceeded because of this, normally it is around 350MB, but by this morning it had consumed all the 3GB limit for the database. It was the same with the error logs on server space. It had generated more than 60GB error logs on my server directory. I finally managed to delete the logs and got my website working again, by removing the plugin. Could you please tell me what went wrong here? I want to make sure this doesn’t happen again in the future if I use the plugin.

My website: https://thefilmpedia.com/

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks & Regards,

Matt

Thank you for your prompt response! Unfortunately, I have removed the error logs and the plugin, as I got spooked. But I’m pretty sure there was some configuration issues because of which this happened. I thought you’d know what went wrong and how not to repeat the mistake. Should I install the plugin again and check?

Sure! Try turning it on for a bit, then check if there is anything in the logs, then turn it off. Let me know if you find anything, please use the lite version support forums for that.

Best regards,

Okay, I’ll try that. Thank you for your assistance!

I want to give users points when they search in the search bar, is it possible?

Hi,

Do you mean like whenever they use a search bar, they get a score point of some sort?

Well, you can use the plugin hooks system to program something like that.

Best regards,

When someone types in the search box, the smaller result window (not the results page) shows 4 results. Can that be changed to 5? Thank you

Hi,

Sure! You can change that here.

Hi just wondering we are working on a postcode dropdown like:

within 1/4 within 1/2 mile etc can we do this based on latitude and longitude if there is a meta key for these 2 fields?

Hi,

I’m afraid no, that is not going to work.

Ernest Marcinko

is this plugin compatible with multi currency plugin such as WOOCS? Does it have price select feature ?

Hi,

We have not tested that, but as long as that plugin hooks into the default Woocommerce price function, it should be all right.

It is possible to create a price filter – usually the best visual is to use a range slider, like here: https://ajaxsearchpro.com/woocommerce-search/

Hi – can I use this with elementor addon widgets such as dynamic.ooo’s ‘dynamic posts’ and ‘dynamic products’ widgets? Cheers

Hi,

I honestly don’t know, but probably not. Visual/style extensions to the original posts widget should work, but separate custom widget will very likely not.

OK thanks. Is there a means to simply override the general WP search results query with the results from this plugin? I want to include numerous custom taxonomy results in the general search. So if site.com/?s=red+dress loads results from this plugin into the query rather than WP results? My addons can utilise the page query or search results query just fine. Thanks!

Sure, make sure to enable the results page override feature.

Hi! Congratulations for the great search plugin but I wanted to first point out a very important problem. As long as the plugin generates url like this ”?s=xiaomi&asp_active=1&p_asid=1&p_asp_data=1&post_tag_set[]=-1&termsetcategory=-1&customset[]=post&asp_gen[]=title&filters_initial=1&filters_changed=0&qtranslate_lang=0&current_page_id=12660” it will always be penalized by Google. Search engines will never consider this type of url. Is it not possible to implement a url rewrite? As an alternative I wanted to ask you if it was possible to insert the result of a search within a page. This way I can rename the page as I prefer. Thanks again.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your kind words!

That is only a “user generated” URL, for redirecting to the results page via the plugin, sending the filter and other states. This can not be indexed by any search engine, as those will not be able to generate the URLs. Search results archive pages are generally not indexed by crawlers, as there are variables in the URL, which are only generated via user interactions. You can explicitly exclude the results page via the robots.txt file if you are concerned, but I have never seen one indexed automatically.

Making these URLs nicer via rewrite rules would have no effect, except generating a lot of possible conflicts with pre-existing rules.

Hi Wpdreams, I work with Elementor pro and Astra Pro template. I have placed a search bar in Home with Shortcode and another with a widget in the footer. In Both I only get the magnifying glass, but not the selector category icon. How is this icon activated? Thank you Fernando H.

Hi,

You can turn that on here: https://i.imgur.com/M6iskUJ.png

I hope that helps!

Is it possible with the plugin to search for text on page similar to CTRL + F search of the browser?

That would be a dream! Because the in-page search on the iPhone with the Safari browser is cumbersome and now I’m looking for a user-friendly solution. Since I am using the Ajax Search Plugin in another project and I am very satisfied, I would like to use it (if in-page search is possible) in the upcoming project.

Hi,

I’m afraid no, that is not possible. You are not the first one to ask for this – maybe we can do something about it in a future release :)

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Hi, would be great! Let me know

Hello!

We are searching for a WP plugin to replace default WP search solution. We did not find this info in description of your plugin: 1. Does your plugin replace search results page or we can use custom view that we already have? 2. Does the search results relevancy nalgorhitm allow to use order/weight to display search results in this specific order and manner: - Contacts (custom post type) - Pages (default WP pages, always after Contacts) - Blogs (default WP blog) and Events (custom post type) mixed in order by publish date

Are these features supported by your plugin? I will look forward to your resoponse!

Hi,

1. It does not replace the results page, that is controlled by the theme. The plugin can only “push” it’s results to the results page for viewing. The rest is handled by the theme.

2. You can change that order of course if you are using multiple post types.

Feel free to check the back-end demo as well, where you can experiment with most of the plugin features: https://ajaxsearchpro.com/admin-demo/

I use Elementor for my pages and posts. Search results are reading the menu widgets on the page and returning them as results. How can I exclude Nav menus from my search results? Thank you kindly!

Hi,

Do you mean, that the navigation menu text/contents are displayed within the live results content fields? So you get the posts and pages as results, but the navigation menu items are part of their description? That only happens, if the actualy post content contains the navigation as well.

If so, then that could get very problematic, as anything stored within the post content field is considered as content, and is stored as a single “text”. Removing unwanted parts of it is not a simple task, and usually requires custom coding.

I would try this option first, then perhaps turning off the secondary content fields as well, if that does not work.

Hi, I have a DIVI post (or i can use a regular page) that I would like to be able to show in full when i do a search. I’ve set up a template with different columns etc. So for example, I search for the word ‘dog’ and it shows the page content in full that has the post name (or tag or category etc) as dog. Is that possible?

Hi,

Well, you can increase the description length, but keep in mind, that the context of the results is still not the same as if it was displayed on the single results page. It can look different, and some styles may not apply at all.

Hello together i am quite new and has a Question are GPLSites for Plugin and Themes legal? I found a Website (for Plugins and Themes. How it can be so discounted and is there any risk to use?

Hi,

Those sites are all 100% illegal and dangerous. Envato market items can only be sold here. It is illegal to purchase the files from those sites, the code is definitely full of malware (even if they claim otherwise). I have seen many of these “legit” downloads on client websites, and they were all infected with malicious code – mostly stealing customer data, bank information and silently taking over the host server for hacking purposes. They are cheap because of that.

I run a directory and have listings for doctors in my country. my users often don’t search for exact names but regularly search for something like “doctor cityname”. is there some way to define a few citynames and make those searches more relevant? because currently there is no search result because the cityname is only a acf pro field that doesn’t have any relevance outside of this specific use-case

is there a bulk edit option to add additional search keywords to multiple posts at the same time? even a solution via a database-code-snippet would be ok.

I’m afraid no, that is only available for single posts. However if you are planning to add them to every item, then the keyword exceptions will basically do the same thing.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

not quite, as there are different cities and if a user is trying to find a doctor from this specific city an exception won’t make the search results better

Hi, is it possible to display only the result of the posts created by current user? .

Hi,

Sure, with this option you can choose the “currently logged in user” as an inclusion.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

super!

Hello wpdreams -

Firstly, this is very nice plugin and trying to make it work for my woo search . I’m using on woo search. I’m notice that product tags which is indexable on the ajax search pro index table is not showing items in the woo search results page which have the searched term in the product tag. The item will show in the results only after I add the product tag term in the item description or title field.

How can I make it so that searched product tag keywords display the corresponding items in woo search results page? Right now looks like item title and description indexed term is resulting in corresponding products in search results excluding product tags.

Thanks

Make sure to change the override location to the WooComemrce results page – not the default one.

I you have custom filters there of some sort, it is possible it may not work. Combining multilpe search/filter plugins together may not work in all cases.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

thank you WP – I have those settings you show in the link. I tried with native woo filters and getting same results partial based on search term. It’s very strange and I like your plugin but need to understand if you can take a look. Maybe something you can see in my configuration.

The core WooCommerce does not have native filters (only sorting options) – it is either added via a 3rd party plugin, or added via the theme itself. I can take a look of course if you want to. Feel free to open a support ticket with this anytime.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Can this be used to get search results from external sources via API?

To make sure I understood correctly, this plugin is able to connect to an external API and pull results from there? Say this website https://docs.deqar.eu/web_api_examples/ – is the plugin able to implement that API and show results from in on my website?

I may have misread your initial question – I thought you meant sending the results from ajax search pro to an external resource.

Still, it is possible, via the asp_results hook, which let’s you change the search results array completely. You could possibly configure the search to not search anything, and push your own results to the result array via the asp_results hook.

Ernest Marcinko

Ah ok thanks!

Hi, you’ve got a great documentation on this plugin. since it has bunch of moving parts and settings, before i started digging through all the articles, i wanted to ask if there is a particular section on how i can get my drop down search results to show with an image that is assigned to that post or term etc.. just like this here: https://screenrec.com/share/gyIOambAeH – Please advise. thanks!

-Nick

just to clarify also to include woo price and available stock in the search results box like the video.

Hi,

Thank you!

The images are automatically displayed by configuration (featured, or if not found then parsed from contents, and it is configurable), the price and stock can be displayed as well via the advanced title and content field feature.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

We are also interested into bar that show current search terms from user. User Philosoph wrote this idea in the comments section. Do you implement this option soon? Or you can do it with extra payment?
