    Hi scott,

    This plugin works like a miracle for my blog. I can’t understand why people pay hundreds of dollars for swiftype or elastic-search hosted services.

    And now I am developing a new yellow page website with about 100k posts and want to use this plugin on that too. But my friend says it uses standard mysql database and chokes up at about 1000 or 2000 posts and Ideally i should use either swiftype or elasticsearch. Is this true? Is there a known maximum limit to this one?

    It is hard to say, I have not tested it on a site with more than a few hundred posts. As your site gets bigger the queries will become slower and more expensive. The plugin does not use raw MySQL queries, it uses standard WordPress queries which should make integration with tools like elasticsearch easier. Results are also cached for a short while to help reduce the strain on your database.

    The parts in question can be seen here: https://github.com/scottsweb/instant-search-suggest/blob/master/assets/inc/iss-ajax.php

    The plugin is open source and improvements and pull requests are encouraged.

    Hi scott,

    Tested it on a site with 2700 posts. Working perfect and smooth with same speed as on a site with 100 posts. Great plugin. Will update you shortly after testing it on a site with 100k posts.

    I am testing it on a site with no external traffic and hosted on Amazon AWS free tier.
