Thank you very much for the details, it makes my work much easier.
I see you don't use the live search, only redirection. However the search override is not activated, meaning the plugin will only redirect to the results page, without attempting to replace the results with it's own. You can enable that on the General Options -> Logics & Behavior panel: Results page override
I hope this helps!Best,
