    Ajax Search Pro is not Picking up Word Content.

    It is ONLY picking up the titles of the “portfolio posts”

    Attached to this support ticket is Admin access to my website.

    Hi!

    So I’ve checked the back-end.

    I’ve opened the “Website Search” and tested, it works for me. I’ve typed in “home”, “cart” and the results were there. The title is there, but it’s not visible because you set the title font to white and the default background image is white as well: https://i.imgur.com/yoy4d7k.png

    If you set the “Result Content Background” to some other color on the Theme Options -> Isotopic results tab to something else than white, then it may also help: https://i.imgur.com/MYdthEB.png

    Thanks Ernest,

    But the issue was not the font color of the Result Titles.

    It is the fact that the Word Content on the pages are not being picked up by the plugin.

    For instance, you can go to any of the pages and insert a keyword(s) like “Harris” , “Georgia”, “showroom”, etc.

    You will find that the Search produces “No Results”.

    How do I get ALL the word content on ALL my pages to be picked up in the Search results?

    Can you please log in again and test this ?

    Hi!

    I see now what you mean. That’s why I was asking in the comments section on codecanyon if you use any shortcodes or something else to display that content. As I opened up the page editor I noticed that the pages are built with some kind of page builder “Content Composer” I guess.

    The problem is that “Content Composer” plugin does NOT store the text in the post database in the description field, but somewhere else. If you switch to the classic editor, you see that the actual post content is empty: https://i.imgur.com/08dyuY0.png
    So there is nothing to search for in the database, since the post content is not stored there.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So what you are saying is that the plugin will not work with themes that have “Content Page Builders” ?

    So this plugin will not work with something like “Visual Composer” ? ( http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-page-builder-for-wordpress/242431 ) ?

    Please reply.

    Not just this plugin, but no search plugins will work if there is no post content available.

    Visual Composer works because it stores the built data in the post content (within shortcodes) and not somewhere else. I believe most “content builder” plugins do the same – because it would break the default wordpress search as well.
    The search is even a Visual Composer addon itself: http://vc.wpbakery.com/addons/ajax-search-pro/
