Awesome plugin

Thank you for creating this plugin. Very useful. :)

Perfect experience, SLOOOOW response...

By perrydc on March 25, 2022

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.

Plugin does not work with Elementor

By kirnata on September 13, 2021

Hi! On my site, the search is output using Elementor. Unfortunately, the plugin does not work with this application. Please tell me, is there anything that can be done? Regards, Natalya.

had some problem with positioning, but finally get good result

No configuration needed

By rob0m on April 19, 2021

Install, activate, immediate impact on existing search forms. I've not even logged for any configurations. That's got to be worth 5*.

Excellent plugin and support

Remarkable plugin and most importantly excellent, fast and helpful support. Many thanks.

Still the BEST Wordpress search plugin

By gommamedo1 on May 14, 2020

The options and search capabilities with SearchWP are the best available for Wordpress search plugins. Elio in their support section is a big part of its success. I needed the ability to cross-reference part numbers and have my .pdf media files show in my search results (along with my pages). With the help of Elio, that happened. The SearchWP's premium support is well worth the annual fee. They immediately are there to help with any questions and implementation of features. I'm very appreciative of Elio and their support team and would be lost without them.

Very useful full documentation too

By FeliceAntonio (Antonio_09) on May 21, 2018

Hi, I like a lot this plugin, I appreciate a bunch you share this work, with the full documentation I customized my search box full screen. Very good work Jonathan, thanks.

Beautiful! Works and fast! (default WP search, Relevanssi)

By treeflips on August 22, 2020

Works lovely with any search plugin you want to use. WP default, Relevanssi, or SearchWP. Very nice and makes your website search that much friendlier to use!
