Ajax Search Pro allows you to create beautiful and responsive search forms that can display live results as you type, without reloading the page.

Ajax Search Pro is compatible with any WordPress theme and builder, such as Elementor, WPBakery Page Builder, Visual Composer, Divi Page Builder, Gutenberg, and others. You can use shortcodes and widgets to insert the search forms anywhere on your site, or override the default WordPress search results page with Ajax Search Pro’s results page.
Ajax Search Pro has over 60 pre-made themes that you can choose from, or you can create your own theme with the intuitive theme builder. You can customize every aspect of the search form and the results layout, such as the colors, fonts, icons, animations, images, and more.
Why do you need Ajax Search Pro?
If you have a WordPress site with a lot of content, you know how important it is to have a good search feature that can help your visitors find what they are looking for. The default WordPress search is often slow, inaccurate, and limited in functionality. It can frustrate your visitors and make them leave your site.
Ajax Search Pro solves this problem by providing you with a fast and reliable search engine that can handle any amount of content and deliver relevant results in milliseconds. Ajax Search Pro also gives you more control over how your search works and how it looks. You can fine-tune the search algorithm to match your needs, such as setting the keyword logic, the relevance score, the index table options, the caching options, and more.
You can also create filters for your search results based on various criteria, such as post type, category, tag, custom field, date range, price range, rating range, and more. You can use different filter types, such as checkbox, radio button, dropdown, multiselect, slider, date picker, and more. You can also set the filter logic and layout to suit your preferences.
Ajax Search Pro also supports searching media attachments and their content. You can search for PDFs, CSVs, TXTs, RTFs, Office documents (Word/Excel/Powerpoint), images (JPG/PNG/GIF), videos (MP4/WEBM/OGG), audio (MP3/WAV/OGG), and more.
How to use Ajax Search Pro?
Using Ajax Search Pro is very easy and straightforward. All you need to do is install and activate the plugin from the Plugins menu in your WordPress dashboard. Then go to Ajax Search Pro » New Search to create your first search form. You can choose from the pre-made themes or create your own theme with the theme builder. You can also configure the general options for your search form, such as the name, description, layout mode (vertical/horizontal/isotopic/polaroid), result layout (horizontal/vertical), image options (show/hide/resize/crop), etc.
Next go to Ajax Search Pro » Filters & Behavior to set up the filters for your search form. You can drag and drop the filters from the left panel to the right panel to add them to your form. You can also edit each filter’s settings by clicking on the gear icon next to it. You can set the filter label, field type (checkbox/radio/dropdown/etc.), items (terms/custom fields/values), logic (AND/OR), layout (inline/block/columns), etc.
Finally go to Ajax Search Pro » Advanced Options to fine-tune the search algorithm and performance for your search form. You can set the keyword logic (OR/AND/EXACT PHRASE), relevance score (title/content/excerpt/etc.), index table options (enable/disable/update/clear), caching options (enable/disable/clear), etc.
Once you have created your search form you can insert it anywhere on your site using shortcodes or widgets.
