Amazing improvements

I've been using the previous versions on some of my projects. I recently updated to version 3 and I'm stunned by the new features. Thank you very much for this plugin!

Some help please
By , for WP 4.0


I have the ajax search lite plugin and i am really pleased with it.
There is only one thing i would love to change.
My whole site is written in dutch, and the option box of the search bar is in english.

I've been trying to change the text of this into dutchh. I changed the following code:

$options['asl_defaults']['exactmatchestext'] = "Exact matches only";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinpoststext'] = "Search in posts";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinpagestext'] = "Search in pages";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchintitletext'] = "Search in title";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchincontenttext'] = "Search in content";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchincommentstext'] = "Search in comments";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinexcerpttext'] = "Search in excerpt";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinbpuserstext'] = "Search in users";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinbpgroupstext'] = "Search in groups";
$options['asl_defaults']['searchinbpforumstext'] = "Search in forums";

this code is located in: /ajax-search-lite/backend/settings/default_options.php

I also tried to change a few things in the /ajax-search-lite/backend/tabs/instance/general_options.php

But none of those seemed to work. I even deleted every thing in those files, uploaded to the site, and the search bar still worked...

Can somebody please help me with this?
The following link is an screenshot of a dummy site i created in which i could change it and that is how i want to have it.


Please help me!

Your latest update is good. Thank you!

I'm really psyched about all the improvements. Being able to exclude some pages by id number is the best feature for me because of the numerous image galleries on the website I work on.
I could go into the excellent interactive admin screen and other stuff, but I'll just show my appreciation with my donation.
I'll be looking into getting the paid version soon.
Thanks again! It's awesome.

version 3.0 rocks

I've been using this for a while, but this new version is just pure awesomeness. Highly recommended!

Injects a Hidden Link

This plugin injects a hidden link on your website. Do not use.

8 Javascripts
By , for WP 3.8

Plugin looks pretty decent, but it lacks docs on how to add to menu. As well, I found 8 javascripts just with this one plugin. I find that unacceptable.

Backend: Works | Frontend: Does not work
By , for WP 3.6.1

Used under Bazar and WP Thirteen themes, search query did not bring up any post or product lines in search on main screen. No other additional plugins were present when testing this. Sorry 1 star until its fixed.

Stop Looking, And Get This Plugin

JUST F***ING GET IT. Spent the past few days for a plugin which does exactly this, and has a short code, and doesn't look ugly. (looks great, with two cool looks). Great job whoever made this.

Well Its works but please be aware of more than 6 JS files being loaded on every page ... Its weird ... It adds about 180kb on all pages so someone like me who cares for PageSpeed , using this plugin is not an option.
