Support » Plugin: Ivory Search - WordPress Search Plugin » Various errors

  • Resolved atutrabajo


    Dear: Good morning.
    In 1st. Instead, tell them that, your plugin is great.
    That said, the only 2 (two) things that, to date, I have not been able to solve are:
    1) When I want to change the placeholder from Search here … to Search Site … and there is NO case. And, honestly, I have tried everything. Since…
    1.1) Go to Ivory Search / Search Form / Desgin / Search Form Customize / Search Form Style / Text Box Placeholder
    Where it actually says … “Search Within the Site” …
    But that is NOT reflected in reality
    1.2) I also went directly to Appearance / Theme Editor / My Theme / searchform.php
    placeholder = “Search Within the Site ….”
    That is, I loaded it manually and, it does not “pay attention” either.
    Just in case, I already cleared ALL caches and still there was no case.

    In 2nd. place and this might be bullshit. But, for me it is important …
    When I click on the magnifying glass and the “dialog box” appears with the aforementioned legend (“Search here …”), if I do not enter ANY data and I click on the magnifying glass, the dialog box stays static, that is, it does NOT return to its place of origin as it should.
    In other words…
    When you click on the magnifying glass, the dialog box is displayed (which is fine) but …
    If I want to collapse the dialog box by clicking on the magnifying glass again, this box is not collapsed (as do all the drop-down elements on my site, such as those next to the magnifying glass, heh)
    Ergo, the only way to “close” the dialog, is to click on the search symbol and as a consequence the visitor ends up “finding” ALL my articles.
    Which, of course, is a waste of time and an unnecessary consumption of resources.

    Here’s the background …
    Note that it uses an incognito window so that the result is not distorted by a cache issue (Although, as I already mentioned, I cleaned them ALL)
    1) Link to my site (the main menu in the header is the one that contains the “problematic” search engine)
    2) Screenshot with the dialog “open” (where the placeholder can be read)
    3) Screenshot of “destination” when clicked with empty dialog

    I hope that all of this information will help you find the nature of the problem.
    I await your comments.
    From already thank you very much.

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

    The menu dropdown search form does not hide clicking on the menu search icon but you can display the search form close icon by configuring the plugin settings as shown in the below shared screenshot.

    Also, please make sure that you have configured the search form in the Menu Search settings as shown in the above shared screenshot.

    Best regards,

    I must admit that … you are GREAT! đŸ™‚

    I just implemented your recommendations and IT WORKS !!!

    Obviously, the X instead of another click (as other drop-downs have) is not ideal but, it still serves to do that, the visitor, if he does not want to search for something specific, can close the dialog box and continue with something else .

    Finally, as for the change in the placeholder text … Believe me, since I installed the plugin I tried to change it!


    It never occurred to me that it was as easy as I did by following your instructions.
    That said, an opportunity for improvement …

    Why don’t you add it to the Instructions for Use?
    Believe me that, like me and, especially if they are from Latin countries, there are many users who want to change that text.

    Good. For now it is all.

    Many thanks.

    Greetings from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
