Sorry for the delay. I'm finishing version 2.3 this week, it looks stable right now. I'm attaching a copy of it to this post. It should eleminate the issues you are having with the vertical results + there is a new result layout called “Polaroid results”. It's most likely buggy a bit yet, but feel free to test/experiment with it.
Installation: The best option is to overwrite the files in the plugins/ajax-search-pro folder via ftp, after extracting the zip archive.
You also might need to delete the searches you have created earlier, I haven't tested for backwards compatibility.
If you like my products, don't forget to rate them on codecanyon :)
