Dave's WordPress Live Search

Adds "live search" functionality to your WordPress site. Uses the built-in search and jQuery.

Dave's WordPress Live Search adds "live search" functionality to your WordPress site. As visitors type words into your WordPress site's search box, the plugin continually queries WordPress, looking for search results that match what the user has typed so far.

The live search technique means that most people will find the results they are looking for before they finish typing their query, and it saves them the step of having to click a submit button to get their search results.

This functionality requires Javascript, but the search box still works normally if Javascript is not available.

transcript

This plugin is compatible with the xLanguage and WPML plugins for internationalization (i18n) of search results.

This plugin also integrates with the Relevanssi plugin for improved search results.

Translators Wanted

Since v2.3, Dave's WordPress Live Search supports multiple languages, but I need native speakers and translators.
