  • I’m seeing the same issue. Did you ever find a resolution?

    I haven’t, and also haven’t heard from the developers. I kind of gave up on using the plugin and went with a different one.

    There may be an incompatibility with other plugins. E.g. Relevanssi (once I deactivated it the results of Live Search showed up)

    I didn’t have any other autocomplete plugins at the same time I was testing this one, and the only other ones I had activated are those I need to have on my site.

    I’d need to see a link to your site to even begin troubleshooting this. Usually when I see behavior like this, it’s things like:

    1. Following a WP security tutorial that tells you to password-protected all of wp-admin, without an exclusion for admin-ajax.php which all WordPress AJAX calls are supposed to go through (even ones that aren’t for admins)

    2. A theme or plugin might be replacing WordPress’s copy of jQuery with a very outdated version that doesn’t support all the features needed.

    3. Another plugin or your theme may be outputting PHP errors in the AJAX output, making it so jQuery isn’t able to parse the response.

    I just installed this too and having a similar experience. Search box just shows a “spinner” on the right hand side. My site is


    Well the Search works but the problem is that the search is shown at the bottom of the screen. Just a simple css could solve this trick

    ul#dwls_search_results {
    position: absolute;

    Just add this to your css file
