ThreeWP Ajax Search


Enables ajax searches for content. The default settings work automatically with Twentyten and derivatives.

It uses WordPress’ built-in search. Works well with Relevanssi because ajax search doesn’t actually do any parsing itself.

Ajax search works right out of the box be can be customized using options, CSS and jQuery customizations. See the screenshots.
