  • The latest version that uses ajax is incredibly slow. If you had execution timeouts with 1.7 then this version is probably great for you, but otherwise the old version is 100x faster – literally. Reverting!

    Hi,

    I’m sorry to hear that you feel the need to downgrade, that’s obviously not something I wanted to hear.

    It’s true though, you do get a bit of added delay due to the need to come back to the users browser to both give a status update, display the results so far (they are populated in real time now after all), and make sure the server executions are ended to avoid awkward crashes.

    I might look into adding some alternatives here to allow you to pull a full search instead of partials which should restore the previous load times without compromising the speed in any major way. Not a guarantee that this will happen, but it’s definitely something I’ll look into though.

    If a future update leads to a better experience for you, I do hope you will return and re-assess your view of the plugin 🙂

    I certainly look forward to any future updates and will update my review if the performance becomes acceptable again. For me, the new version resulted in searches taking several minutes to run vs 10 seconds which is just way too long. A full search would be the way to go – maybe you could only send ajax updates when 10 seconds has elapsed, or every 10%.

    Another possibility is to make the ajax status display an option.

    Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know that 1.9.0-beta1 is currently available and i’m looking for feedback on it as it attempts to address the slowdown some users are experiencing, you can see the details of it and the download link in the thread dedicated to it at https://wordpress.org/support/topic/bring-back-old-functionality?replies=15#post-8258358 and I would love it if you had a chance to have a look and see if that makes it better for you.

    It is indeed fast once again :). The most obvious bug I found was that the search results do not clear on a new search therefore compounding multiple search results.
