Please any support/integration with the SearchWP plugin?

Thank you

Oh by the way. I LOVE your plugin. The demo is really great and seamless.

Hi gentlepete! We have a guide on how to add filters to integrate Sumo Search with other plugins. Here is link to it in case you want to know how it works: http://gambit.helpscoutdocs.com/article/109-filter-hooks

hello is very show this way to lay the screens and stick with 3d effect, could show me the software that does this?

Hello there! Technically, this is possible by adding CSS animations through Custom CSS. Which in the Live Search you’re trying to add animation?

Admin message when v 1.1.1 is activated on wp 4.4.2 multisite subsite: Titan Framework needs to be installed. Click here to search for the plugin.

Please do install the Titan Framework, this plugin is required for the Sumo Search settings to appear. Its a free plugin and you can find it here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/titan-framework/

Hello,

We’re interested in this plugin, although I noticed that after a period of inactivity, the plugin seems to stop fetching results regardless. You can see how that could be confusing for a user that happens to leave the site open & returns after a prolonged time, how that could be disastrous.

Here is a screenshot from your very demo site: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cjx7g0tau5d3xo/noresults_example.png?dl=0

I also then tried refreshing it and closing the top bar to jump into the site itself & try it, and nothing; same outcome.

Please look into this so that we can be assured this wouldn’t happen on an important site with the plugin active.

Thanks,

Hello SRS! What browser are you using when you viewed the demo? And how long of inactivity did you wait for for this problem to appear?

Can you make this as a php module class or script ?

Currently, this is not possible due to fact that the search functions highly depend on the WordPress default search. However, we’ll take this as a suggestion. :)

what about search options? multisite blogs, categories, tags?

it is very attractive plugin! anyway.

All the options you need are in the Customizer or can be made by filters. :) Search behavior can be also customized by filters as well.

Hi there! I have a pre-sales question:

If I buy this plugin I would use it exclusively with the Avada theme. Can you please tell me if:

1) When clicking in Avada’s “search” icon, it popups the overlay search? Or it only pops up when the user starts typing in Avada’s default search bar?

2) It integrates with Avada search without any issues?

Thanks!

Hello there! About your pre-sale questions:

1) This depends on your setting. But overall, you can set our plugin to either to trigger when you typed anything outside search, or override your avada search field, or by enabling our button for search. You can find this in our customizer.

2) There should be no problem with functionality. But at the very most, there might be some minor CSS override, which can be fixed by Custom CSS.

We just tested our plugin with Avada, In fact, we just added a CSS fix to make sure that Avada (and some other themes) will give a consistent output. :)

Dear Madam/Sir,

Trusting at first sight your descriptive* and demo* (easy resizable overlay search field, overriding option for existing Search Buttons, etc.), I have bought the ‘Sumo Search WP Plugin’, but quickly became disillusioned by the impossibility of extricating myself from the ‘Avada 4.0.2 WP Theme’ restrictions/contradictions — meanwhile your recent response to a certain ‘limasfilipe’ (cf. Comments section of CodeCanyon.net) ensured to your customers that “you have tested the ‘Sumo Search WP Plugin’ with Avada and added a CSS fix to make sure that Avada will give a consistent output”.

Except that, in concrete terms, two of the main Sumo Search options [Appearance > Customize > Sumo Search > Search Area > Search Area Styles] and [Appearance > Customize > Sumo Search > Settings > Selector for Existing Search Buttons] appear inoperative.

About the ‘Search Area Styles’ (resizable overlay search field), you most probably know that this option is totally dependent on the Avada [Theme Options > Extra > Forms Styling] parameters relative to ‘Form Input and Height Controls of all search, form input and select fields’, while “the options on this tab apply to all forms throughout the site” (dixit the Avada Team).

Now and unless to impact my whole site — that is not even conceivable — by resizing the innumerable form fields (currently set to 40px height, whereas I intend to resize the ‘Sumo Search WP Plugin’ overlay search field to 150px height), this option is desperately pointless.

About the overriding option for existing Search Buttons [Appearance > Customize > Sumo Search > Settings > Selector for Existing Search Buttons], no JavaScript selector (such as ‘search-button’…) is recognized — even though I have no pretention to be a web developer, nor the time to guess where the required JavaScript selector is hidden for ‘Avada 4.0.2 WP Theme’ Header Layout #1 with the ‘Main Menu Search Icon turned on to display the search icon in the main menu’.

Anyway, would you be so kind as to explain to me how simply solve this issues.

With thanks in advance,

Sincerely,

A*

Many thanks for your goodwill and support!

You’re welcome!

is it possible use wihtout popup search?

I want search in widget. no popup.

The main purpose of the plugin is to add a search overlay. Search widget is not included. But WordPress itself have their own search widget.

is possible to translate: .mo .po? thanks in advance

All our products have a /language subfolder containing .mo and .po files. If you would like to contribute your translations, we will also accept it as well.

bought this awesome plug, but i cant find the setting in admin, only wp-admin/plugins.php?page=gambit_plugins page. but there no setting on that page, also guessing from comments above i can use searchwp with sumo search for better search results right?

The Sumo Search also have a Customizer on Appearance > Customize. If you don’t see this menu, you might need to check if you have Titan Framework installed and activated. The Titan Framework is a free plugin that we require in order for the menus to appear. Here is a link to it: https://wordpress.org/plugins/titan-framework/

Sumo search is soo much more than a search plugin. It’s potentially an instant modal page to ‘latest posts’ pages tagged ‘foo’ all posts to do with ‘xxxx’

My question is can you create a link/button on the page that has a search query embedded so that on-click it triggers a dynamic overlay of the results. something like <a href="mywebsite.com/?post_type=posts&genre=feature">Featured posts</a>

really cool if we could do this!

Thanks for your reply, how would this work if I simply wanted a page link to trigger a search for the latest 5 new posts? for example. THank-you

If you meant creating a URL for the latest 5 post, this will mean you’ll have to create a filter where you can add a keyword that will make the latest 5 post show up. Here are some references that you may find useful when you create them:

http://gambit.helpscoutdocs.com/article/109-filter-hooks https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query

Thanks, I’ll dig into that one.

Another question … Do the search results excerpts follow wordpress excerpt settings? So if I generally allowed some html tags in excerpts, would these tags also be allowed in search results page overlay? I’m thinking specifically of including an MP3 player in the excerpts. These questions ARE leading up to a purchase.

Thank-you.

Yes it does. And the HTML should render as well.

Ok, that’s a deal clincher the. Many thanks for your help

You’re welcome. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask again. Have a nice day!

We’re interested in knowing if something like this [http://tympanus.net/codrops/2014/11/04/simple-morphing-search/ – live demo: http://tympanus.net/Development/MorphingSearch/] could be easily achievable with your plugin, or if not, if you’d be willing to integrate something like it for the next update / or some future update in the roadmap? It seems this would be an interesting fit, with gorgeous results.

Also, on that note, how easy/complicated is it to customize live result output regarding both CSS and/or different live result streams, maybe, like, categorized.

Best regards,

– IDDLA

Hello iddla! Technically, Sumo Search is inspired by Simple Morphing Search. What Sumo Search exactly does is to add a Search Overlay either in replacement for the Search Bar or by just typing in the keyword itself.

Sumo Search is customizable. You can change the behavior on where it should trigger, change colors and styles. These settings are fairly easy, as we made a settings panel for customization (via Appearance settings). And if there is anything you want to add more, you can also add Custom CSS. Adding filters for a different search output? We made a documentation on how to make Filter Hooks just in case.

Last but not the least, if you want to give our plugin a try, we recommend you to click on the Live Preview. The Live Preview have a built-in sandbox backend where you can play around with the settings. Just click on the ‘Launch Demo’ by then. :)

Hi, the customizer doesn’t seem to change the font color on the search bar or results.

I managed to edit the css manually using the titan css file. Is there a way to filter two post types? I’ve seen your code for one post type, but adding another line with a second post type doesn’t seem to work.

Hi there! Normally, the styles should apply accordingly. But there are some cases where the theme may override some of Sumo Search’s styles. In this case, using a Custom CSS should fix this.

As for the filters, have you tried using an array to do it? Here is an example 'post_type' => array('posttype1', 'posttype2'),

Hello -

I love the look and feel of the demo and adds a nice touch to site search, I do have a couple questions based on some of the comments I have read.

1. The Titan Framework is a “must” install with this plugin? Why is this needed? Does this conflict with existing themes Options Panels? (Redux, Option Tree, etc.)

2. Are the “keywords” manually populated into a list or is this based on taxonomy? (Titles, Categories, & Tags)

3. Guessing this integrates seamlessly with Relevanssi or SearchWP? How much set up is involved?

Thanks, looking forward to your response.

Hello there!

Thank you for the interest towards the Sumo Search plugin. As for your questions:

1. Yes. Titan Framework is what is responsible for the menus and customizer to appear. Thus, this is important. As far as Redux Framework and etc. is concerned, we haven’t received any reports about conflicts.

2. The keywords are based on the default functions of WordPress search. Sumo Search adds the overlay and styles to make your search look awesome. But the search functions can also be modified if you install something like Relevanssi.

3. Yes. We even customized Sumo Search to support some search customizations like Relevanssi.

If you have any other question, please let me know. :)

Hello -

In regard to your response on #1, I thought Customizer was a default operation of Wordpress? Why wouldn’t you have a user interface for your plugin rather then rely on something else for it?

Performance is a big deal to me which means I like to have sites slimmed down as much as possible, reducing as much bloat as I can. Adding additional plugins just to have an interface for your plugin seems counter-productive IMO.

Do you have any plans or road map to build out your own interface rather then relying on Titan?

Thanks.

What we meant about the Customizer is the Custom Menu for Sumo Search. Our developers made the Titan Framework for the purpose of making our own user interface easily. This will also keep our codes neat.

The Titan Framework have little to no effect especially to the frontend. We have lots of plugins and some other’s plugins that depends in Titan Framework, and so far we don’t get any problems with performance.

As for building our own interface, this is the main reason why we exactly have Titan Framework. :)

Hi! I have +2000 images in galleries (the title of the image its not visible for the visitors) . Whit this plugin the visitors can find the image typing the title-name of the image?

Sumo Search pretty much work the same as the default search of WordPress Search. If your WordPress search can search title name of the images, then it should also work with Sumo Search. :)

Hi, I created bootstrap website can i use this script to my bootstrap website ?

As long as it is still running in a normal WordPress environment, then yes it should work just fine. :)

tl;dr Titan conflicts with Genesis, any way to fix?

The customizer is stuck on loading whenever Titan Framework is enabled. When i disable, the Customize section works perfectly. It’s definitely conflicting with the Genesis Theme itself as I DISABLED all plugins and only had Sumo + Titan enabled and still no go.

Genesis Framework Maker Pro

Hello petercopu and apologies for the late response. Looks like we managed to reproduce the conflict. By any chance, did you mean that the Customizer stucks and becomes unclickable? Also, we advice you to send a ticket in our support site so we can send you a dev fix as soon as we’re done with it.

We’ll be working on this as soon as possible.

Regards! :)

I really like this plugin, my question is I have alot of content that I don’t want to pop up in the search results.. Is there anyway to have an “exclude” option, where results with certain key words or tags or categories do not show up in the results? thanks

Hi there vonslicks! Thank you for your appreciation. :)

As for the exclude option, currently the only way of doing this is to add a Filter Hook. Here is a documentation for it: http://gambit.helpscoutdocs.com/article/109-filter-hooks

Here is what we’ll particularly need to add for exclusion: add_filter( 'sumo_generate_search_area', 'my_search_area' ); function my_search_area( $html ) { // Change the 'no results found' message. $html = str_replace( 'No results found', 'No artists found', $html ); return $blank; }

Also, since this feature is important, I gave this suggestion to our developers for implementation. This will be added in one of the future versions.
