Hi, My wordpress install is saying there is an update to 4.10.1 available. I’ve updated but the version is still 4.10 … is that correct or am I missing something? Thanks

Hi,

It’s not yet approved here on codecanyon, sometimes it take a few days for them to approve. The auto updater however has that version already. For automatic updates you can refer to this guide.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Wow … that’s quick support. Great thank you .. have activated through plugin .. nice feature!

Hi,

What changes occurred in this version 4.10.1? I don’t see anything in the changelog.

Hi,

Forgot to update the changelog URL, sorry about that, it should contain the changes now.

It was only a minor hotfix release, fixing some bugs revealed in the 4.10 major release.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Thanks, much appreciated.

Hi there! This seems to be a very powerful tool, congrats! Before buying, I need to know if it can to this :)

I need to enter text in the first search field and depending on the text entered (cities) the next filter (which are categories) will display accordingly. For example typing San Francisco would display the next filter categories 1, 2 and 3, but typing Los Angeles would only display in filters categories 2 and 5. And then I could pick a category and go on with other filters which would end up display the right results.

Would that be possible or are the filters not related to each other?

Thanks for your time! Cheers

Hi!

Thank you very much for your kind words!

Unfortunately this is not yet possible, the filters are static.

HI, I made suggestions some time ago (1 to 2 years). I will really use your plugin now :-) You replied that these features would be integrated later … Is that the case now? I’ve watched the demo and the latest version but I’m not sure
1/ Would it be possible to include a parameter in the shortcode to limit the number of results?
2/ Is it possible to do a full text search in the description of buddypress profile (text fields or textarea)?
3/ allow 1-click to select / deselect all checkbox categories ( /admin.php?page=ajax-search-pro%2Fbackend%2Fsettings.php&asp_sid=1#302) ?
4/ Can also exclude your search results of members who have certain criteria:
a) no avatar
b) Value of a field (Eg <20 years)
5 / What difference to exclude between Advanced Options/ Exclude Results AND general options/ User Search
Regards

1 / in fact I’m looking for how to know the name of a BP xprofile meta-fiels to determine the sort order

Genearal Options / Ordering / custom field name

1. That will not affect the ordering, as it is not custom post meta, but user meta. For user search meta field ordering has no effect.

HI, 1 / if I understand correctly; I would have to add a meta-field with acf on a member profile or wait for the addition of a sorting functionality in your plugin on user search meta field. it is not easy to filter the avatars !!

2 / and the other question: Is it useful to use the “index table engine” for xProfile Field?

Thank you for your patience Regards

Hello there,

I was wondering. Does the plugin allow to display results in a modal window instead of redirecting to the product’s page? If not, would this customization be plausible?

Regards

Hi,

Unfortunately that is not possible without a decent customization.

There is a javascript API and shortcodes for results positioning available, so you could potentially move the results element to a modal, and trigger to display it via a javascript handler when the search is over. It’s just a theory though.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

I see. What worries me would be compatibility with future releases, because a heavy customization might make that difficult :/

I’m interested in the List layout, mainly. I’ll evaluate the options. Thank you!

Hi there. A presale question (I made this in your website but I think I can get a quicker answer here)

I am “developing” a website for real estate. My client want an advanced filter. That’s not the real issue. The thing is that he want to get “statistics” of all the visitos’s searches. So … your plugin provide:

1.- A way to create an advanced custom search form for Custom Post Types, with custom meta and taxonomies, including range price?

2.- Can I see or get search stats, like “most searched range price” or “most used keyword” or “most searched city” something like that?

Hi!

1. Yes, it is possible, you can check a complex example here.

2. Unfortunately only basic statistics is available for now, like most popular search phrases & recent search phrases. You can check that on the back-end demo here.

Hello,

Do you planning that add support for AMP pages ?

Thanks

Hi,

If by AMP you mean the ‘Accelerated Mobile Pages’ plugin, then from what I can see it uses the same content as the non-mobile version, so searching should not be an issue at all, since the data is the same. The only difference is that the AMP urls have the ’?amp’ at the end, which can be appended to the result links via a simple filter or javascript code, if needed.

The bigger problem is that the AMP plugin seems to be abandoned (I see reports there as broken), until there is a stable solution or they pick it up again, I don’t know if it’s worth exploring it.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

But, as far as I know AMP themes are HTML and also not supporting the JS and some PHP Codes. So it can be problem for Ajax Search Pro Users to import it. If you add supports for AMP version of sites, in my opinion you should add description this feature. It is really important for search base sites.

Thanks and Regards,

If the defaultsearchtext contains a qTranslate-style field like this: [:en]Search…[:es]Buscar…[:] the translation is not used.

Adding the following snippet to the asp_icl_t function fixes this:

if (function_exists(‘qtranxf_useCurrentLanguageIfNotFoundUseDefaultLanguage’)) { return stripslashes( qtranxf_useCurrentLanguageIfNotFoundUseDefaultLanguage( $value ) ); }

It would be great if this could be added to the plugin!

Hi,

I’m including it in release 4.10.3 :)

Can someone choose a specific category from the drop down menu and the search results concerns only this chosen category?

Hi,

Yes, it is possible to create a category drop-down filter to display results only from the selected category.

Best regards,

This option doesn’t work in my site (www.caroto.gr). I follow all the instructions but when i selected a category the results comes from all site (not filtered by category). Can u advice me? Thanks!

If you also want to filter out everything that does not belong to any category make sure to disable this option: http://i.imgur.com/DVCgfLh.png

..and if you need matches only from that exact selected category, then changing the Category/Taxonomy terms logic is needed as well: http://i.imgur.com/HRMjGlH.png

This will make sure to display results that match the selected category, and not to show anything that does not belong to anywhere else (or no connection with the category).

Hi, great plugin! I wanted to know please, is there a way to use it as a an events search? by dates as well? I saw there is an option to search for content that was published from x to y, but is there an option in someway to have a search for a future date? Thanks

Hi,

In case you use The Events Calendar plugin, it is possible to make filters based on event dates. Event start and end dates in that plugin are stored as a post meta ‘_event_start_date’ and ‘_event_end_date’.

For example, making a filter for events starting from a specific date, you could do this: http://i.imgur.com/2iri08G.png

This will result in a front-end date picker, which will filter events only from the specified starting date.

Hi,

These are false positives, you can safely update. The plugin was tested in php7 environment.

Hello, I found that plugin doesn’t search in products tag page text. I have some text in product tags page and I need that search index this text. Is it possible? Thanks.

Hi,

It depends: – If you want to return product tags as results, then make sure the Search Term Descriptions option is enabled on the General Options -> Sources 2 panel: http://i.imgur.com/Zt52sFQ.png

- If you want to return products based on product tag descriptions, unfortunately that is not possible yet, but I will add it as a feature request for the next release.

Maybe it will be useful to add “Additional search tags” for product tags, like we have in a single product page (“Additional search tags for this post”).

Hi Started using lite version and really loving it. Though we have added the ADD TO CART code to functions.php, the button is not showing up. Should we purchase the pro version to get the ADD TO CART button alongside search results. Another presale query is; When we enabled Front End Options > Show the Categories Selectors, Product Categories are not showing up on the search form. Is this feature is available with Pro version only? Thanks and Regards

Hi!

If you use this tutorial for the lite version: https://goo.gl/pVye7e
Then make sure to change line 4 to this:

add_filter( 'asl_results', 'asp_add_to_cart_data', 1, 1);

This is however not guaranteed to work in every case, even for the pro version, as there are constant changes in WooCommerce as well – although so far it worked for everyone. But it’s worth a try :)

The lite version only supports post categories, no other custom taxonomies (it might change in the future). For now it’s only available in the pro version.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Hi Great to come across your quick response and will surely consider buying the Pro if required. Unfortunately changing the line 4 didn’t bring luck to us. :-) Thanks and Regards

Hi, i just intalled the new version and when i try to create an instance of the search i get “The search form was not created. Please contact support.” message what should i do ? and i noticed that the installation did not create the tables on the database thank you

Hi,

It means that the database tables were not created for some reason. Try re-installing the plugin, it usually helps the case. You can also check the privileges on the DB user, so it’s capable of creating tables, and then trying again.

You can also run the database creation queries manually by running this SQL file: https://goo.gl/1gDD3H

In this case make sure to change the default ‘wp_’ table prefix in the query, if you have a different one.

Best regards,
Ernest Marcinko

Hi, i just resolved the above issue, but i have another one :) ! I wanted to put key-phrases instead of keywords and separeted by comma and space, is this possible? thank you :)

Hi

I am interested in ordering your Search filter plugin.

Will your search filter plugin work with WP posts or must they be a CPTUI post?

I have created all my posts in my site under the WP posts – which is over 135 example of one

http://lastminutecruises.website/fred-olsen-cruise-ships/braemar/explore-breathtaking-norwegian-fjords-on-this-stunning-8-night-scenic-cruise-braemar-fred-olsen-departs-10th-april-2017-southampton-uk/

They all follow a similar format..

Will AjaxSearchPro recognize my posts and produce desired search results?

The categories for my site is extremely complex.

I have detailed a complete breakdown of all cats and child cats -

Two Primary cats -

Ocean Cruises River Cruises

Primary Child cats Cruise Line >Cruise ships

Please take a look at the exploded mindmap view.

http://lastminutecruises.website/MDTF%20Search/index.html

You can click onto each of the Countries which has an -> under Continents – Popular Destinations it will open a list of all the individual countries.

Would it be possible to create search filters for my requirment?

Thanks

presales question – my site includes blog , woocommerce and product brands. Are these all possible with just a searchbox with specific box placeholder?
    1. on the blog pages, could I add search box just to search from title, author and content >
        2. on one page could I have a different search box to search items of certain brand
            3. on woocommerce page, another searchbox to search from product title and description
              Thanks !

Hello and thank you again for this awesome plugin… The plugin is currently set to display only 10 ajax search results whenever I type in a search term. Can I increase this please? So that, when I do a search, it will flash me all available corresponding results – thank you!
