This is what I was looking

By ,


at first I would like to thank you for the Plugin. It looks really nice, but I have a problem with the search in pages.

I have created a testpage with a textsection (some words like "Testside"). After saving and publishing the testpage, I inserted the shortcode ([wpdreams_ajaxsearchlite] )in my sidebar. At first glance everthing looks fine, but when I try to search "Testside" I get a "No results" notification.
When I search posts everything works fine.

Can anyone tell me what's going wrong? In the general options of the Plugin I set the "Search in posts" and "Search in pages" to "on". There are no problems when I am searching posts, but pages the plugin do not find. It would be great if someone can help me in this case.

Best regards

Not working
By , for WP 4.1.1

simply not working on pages, only on posts.
finds abslutely NOTHING on static pages not a single word.

also: the author seems to have only rudimentary knowledge about programing and/or wp, judging by the questions he asked.
is the word in the DB? YES, if its on a page entered in the backend its in the DB! made me look it up in the actual db....

after helping the admin for hours with input from my site his final words where:

Everythink looks fine, which is good.

mind you, at this point NOTHING worked and NO ISSUE had been solved.

I dont know how this guy can sell a "pro" version if the free one doesnt even work .... miracles

Highly recommended,

Amazing work! The plugin is very easy to use and has lots of features.
Just what I needed!

Thank you!

Seems to be great featurewise, but

please use something else than timthumb since it has had few bad security flaws in its history and is not supported anymore (see binarymoon.co.uk - Timthumb end life).

You could provide custom image size selection instead and use post thumbnail.

Also, ralated to this there is a bug in the code: usetimthumb caching option isn't checked thus preventing using something else.

Nice plugin - not working in header file
By , for WP 4.0

I don't know why its not showing on my navigation bar.

    <!-- Header -->
        <div class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-static-top">
            <div class="container">
                 <?php echo do_shortcode('[wpdreams_ajaxsearchlite'); ?>
