    Hi and thanks for this nice plug-in. I I am using Google search for my WordPress and I managed to get Autocompleter to work with Google search. The default settings did not work.

    Go to the html code of Google search and add an id

    <div class="google-search">
    <form action="page for search results" id="cse-search-box">
      <div>
        <input type="hidden" name="cx" value="your google search id" />
        <input type="hidden" name="cof" value="FORID:9" />
        <input type="hidden" name="ie" value="UTF-8" />
        <input type="text" id="gs" ""'name="q" size="20" />
        <input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search" />
      </div>
    </form>

    I added id="gs"
    In Kau-boys options menu use gs as your search ID.

    I think if the search results would be more relevant and faster to show up, I will certainly use this plug-in!

    Thanks for your work and for your time,
    Wisam

    Hi Wisam.

    As I understand your post right, you use the Google Search API to let users search your blog using the Google search? And you use my plugin to have a live search for users with JavaScript activated where they actually use the WordPress search through my plugin?

    That's a cool combination. I would like to see that on your blog.

    How could result be more relevant? Would you like to have more settings to configure the results? Like only searching for title or searching for tags/categories, too?

    I would really like to hear your feedback to improve the usability of the plugin.

    Kau-Boy
