issue with textdomain
By , for WP 4.3.1

Getting while trying to translate with Codestyling Localization

Error: The actual loaded translation content does not match the textdomain: ajaxy-sf
Expect, that any text you translate will not occure as long as the textdomain is mismatching!
This is a coding issue at the source files you try to translate, please contact the original Author and explain this mismatch.

Love this plugin but 1 MAJOR PROBLEM
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin is IMPOSSIBLE to use when debug is on unless you want 3-4 inches of error messages on your screen because a function in this plugin was deprecated a few months ago. I have the fix but the author does not respond which really sucks because implementing the fix would take a minute. Hope he adds fix.


Line 6 should be

parent::__construct( false, $name = 'Ajaxy live search' );

Will put 5 star when author fixes.

Fantastic, incredibly powerful

Hard to believe a free plugin could be this functional. Only wish there was a way not to include post images in search. As good as many commercial plugins. Well done and thank you.

Quick and easy to use.

Although i am not an expert in programming, i find this plugin easy to install, configure and use. It has many customization options, it supports custom post types and you can make your own custom theme.

Adding to the above, this plugin shows the results in a quick speed, without any bad effect to the general site speed.

I think this is one of the best Live Search plugins out there!

Many thanks to the author!

thanks a lot for your plugin! works great for me on mapsmarker.com!

just one feature request: please add an option which allows you to change or remove the label "Search for:" - currently I have to edit your plugin files on each updates and it would be great if that could be changed with a future release...


By far the best WordPress live search plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've been using other WordPress plugin to serve live results on my site since a long time, but all of those plugins were just okay, and delivers really slow results.

Just five days back, I decided to test this plugin on my local WordPress server, and after a little tricky installation (messed up a little with using theme's search box id) it worked really well. I didn't expected the search results were so fast and highly relevant. At the same time, I was surprised with the customization level of the plugin, once it's installed you can configure everything on how you wanted the search results to display and from what custom posts or taxonomy, you wanted the plugin to show results. I am now already a fan of this plugin and using it on one of my site with a monthly traffic of 1.5M+ pageviews. All I can say I am highly highly impressed.

Still this plugin has got a lot of room to work on improvement department, as sometimes the results are slow and sometimes it also deliver "no results found" for an already available content, but again when you do the second search for the same search query it perfectly displays the results.

Anyways, thanks a lot for this wonderful plugin! :)

Perfect !
