    Hello, here’s the problem i have. When enabling url override it shows asp_active=1 after ?s=keyword so i disable it for now. also when clicking on the More Results it takes me to the default wordpress search as the results are different from the pro search plugin.
    for example:
    http://www.freedvdcover.com/search/ and type see no evil – there is no relevance for these keywords and then click on more results, you will see other results.
    thank you.

    Hi Andrew,

    The “asp_active=1” query parameter is necessary for the plugin to know to override the search results. If you turn off the results override option, then it will indeed disappear, but it will display the wordpress default search results instead.

    I just checked, but I see the exact same results when the override is activated:

    Non- ajax: https://i.imgur.com/BjynHhM.png

    In case I missed something, can you please also provide temporary FTP access? If the override is not working, it usually means that the theme itself is overriding the default wordpress search results, which is impossible to circumvent without touching the code.

    Look what it gives me: https://imgur.com/a/2KWaz
    anyway, i activated now override and seems that gives the same results even if asp_active is there, but there is no relevancy, why does not shows the see no evil title ? as you can see on the wordpress original search..

    I think you need a different keyword logic.
    Please check the documentation:
    Search logic settings
    Search logic explained with examples

    You should try the “AND” logic or the “AND with exact keyword matches” logic, since there are lots of movies in your database, it will fit better. The default “OR” logic is to match as many items as possible, while you probably only want a very few, but relevant results.

    If you want an more specific, occurrence based relevancy, I can also recommend using the index table engine. For that, please check chapter 12, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 in the documentation: https://goo.gl/ooNYPY

    ok, thank you, i will try the “AND” logic as i’m already using index table engine.

    can you setup for me to work as it should ? or for some keywords like that movie i showed.. there is nothing we can do to show it, you saw worpdress search was showing the movie while ajax pro search was not.

    Let me check on that. I think I know why.

    ok, thank you very much

    I think it should give you much different results now, can you please try it?

    The problem was that by default the index table program does not index words below 3 characters, and common words. So words like “no”, “and” etc.. are not indexed. However in your case you need it, as movie titles often contain common words.
    On the index table Advanced settings I have disabled the stop words and reduced the index characters to 2, so it should be working now I hope: https://i.imgur.com/9xhZTSr.png
    I have re-created the index with the new options, so you don’t have to do it.
