New Features

Importing Options from Ajax Search Lite

A long awaited feature, finally here. Now, if you are a previous Ajax Search Lite user, you can import the options when creating a new search instance.

Filters API and Templating

There has been a major improvement on how the front-end filters are handled. We reworked the old, hard-coded outputs, and separated the whole thing into a completely new templating system. This lets you make permanent changes to the front-end filters outputs.

The templates are working with a unified front-end filters API, so there is an easier way to add/remove/modify the front-end filters. This API now can be easily extended with new features, that we have planned for the future releases.

..and also

We added:

  • Adjustable results box width, padding and margins, as well as adjustable snapping to the search bar
  • Separate ordering for user type results
  • Options to set CPT results grouping by title and not by ID when needed
  • Inclusive options to all date filters, so that the selected date can be included. Oh, and date filters can have a placeholder, as well as an empty value by default.
  • “date_format” parameter for the advanced title and content fields, when using date type custom fields

There are lots of fixes and changes, for that you can check the full version log.
