This is the exact plugin I need in every way. The user experience is perfect. I love the customization. And it pretty much just works out of the box.
The problem (and this is a big one) is that the ajax call busts the cache, so every time you type in a query it hits the database (even if it’s the same query you made a second ago). I’ve tried everything I can think of to subvert this, including more time than I care to admit messing with wordpress core caching rules and tinkering with the default ajax configuration in wordpress.
I can see why some people would want to bust the cache every time, but this should be configurable for those of us who are willing to accept a little stale content in return for blazing performance. I’m kinda on the fence over whether autocomplete search is even necessary when the lag is 2-3 seconds.
