Support » Plugin: ACME Amazing Search » how do I see autocomplete dropdown list

  • Hi, On the plugin page it says:
    “Insert the shortcode [aas] anywehere in your WordPress website and you will get a search input field with integrated jQuery UI autocomplete functionality. Get result as you type (at least 2 characters).”
    I don’t see any “results as I type”, what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for any help
    David

    Hi, David. Thank you for downloading my plugin.
    Before starting your searches, you may setup the plugin.
    You can do this operation in WordPress Dashboard under Acme -> Search Tools.

    Ther you must set up the post-type you want the plugin to search in and, at the bottom of the page, the caching options.

    At plugin first run or after an update, the cache will be empty, so you have to build it pressing on “cache now” button.
    After you pressed the button, your page should be updated with a message like this:

    imgur image

    As you can see you can find file dimensions and timestamp of the latest cache.
    The plugin can perform an hourly automatic refresh of the cache, but you can run it anytime with the update button.

    Please, let me know if I can be of further help
    Take care

    Hi Mirko, Thanks for getting back to me.

    At the top of the page in “Search in Custom post-types:” and under Search Options “WP Search in specific post_type:” I’ve entered the slug name of the custom post-type as you suggested.
    Not clear how a user of the web site needs to go into the Search Tools and click Cache Now, but anyway I did and still don’t see any “results as I type”

    Hi, David.
    The user ain’t no need to enter the Search Tools, but the Admin, at first install, has to. After the first run, the cache will be automatically updated once per hour.
    The cache is needed for performance. Depending on your environment a simple ajax query to your wp db can take up to 4 seconds: every key you press during search runs a query, so the result should be a long response with lots of db requests. With the caching system, a single file is stored once per page load, making your search super fast.

    If you may provide me a temporary access to your wp-admin area I would look into it.
    Otherwise, could you please send me a screenshot of the cache box results after you updated the cache?
    Thanks
    Mirko
