Why isn’t SearchIQ working for my website?

Assuming you have installed everything according the instructions, there could be two reasons you still can’t see SearchIQ working as planned:

  1. Your site doesn’t have a search bar – In this case, go to options tab in the SearchIQ plugin admin. You will see options to add a search bar as a widget or as an icon in your site’s menu.

  2. If your site does have a search bar – The search box input element name could be something other than the default value of ‘s’. Inspect the search box element on your site and copy the name into the “Search box name” field found under the “Options” tab in SearchIQ plugin.

Easy Plug and Play – Best Search

I installed this search plugin expecting the usual WP experience:

* That something would surely break, either my theme styling / layout, or a php conflict.

* Or that it would be a pain to set up and configure.

I am pleased to report that all I had to do to make this search fit perfectly into my setup and theme was to simply press “Activate Plugin”. That’s it.

Even beyond that, this search is really modern and fast. Autofill fuzzy search and spell check work fast and accurately, all with default settings.

I hope these guys keep at it. So far so good.

needs improvement


It is displaying out of stock products in search even if I have hidden out of stock products in woocommerce.

Also, I think you should try to make results load a bit faster. I tried algolia search as well, and results load in 50-100 milli seconds, whereas here it still takes 0.5-1 second.

I hope you guys can fix this asap.

PS: I am a paying customer

Easy to Use plugin

Gives reliable search output
Very fast.
Love this plugin.
I have one important question:
How to show filters on left side of page as shown in your demo site?

Too Greedy

When I first installed this on my site I was more then excited. Unfortunately when I went to go look at the stats of my site I found a giant red flag. This plugin is great if your willing to spend at least $240 a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For a search plugin?!?!?!??!!??!?!??!!?

If you don’t sign up for a paid plan with this developer you only get site stats for the previous 24 hours. Which is completely useless unless you check it daily and track the data manually. If this would have been $40-$60 for a year I would have begrudgingly paid it, but $240 a year to find out what people are searching for on my site?? Thats excessive, more then excessive and I don’t plan on keeping this plugin on my site when there are plenty of adequate alternatives for free or a fraction of the cost.
