    I use Google Chrome to browse, Elementor, WooCommerce, and WordPress to build.

    I have three search bars on the site. Two show in the footer and on the search results page. One is special, searches only products, shows in the header, and has very plain styling.

    If I am in Chrome, and choose “Developer Tools” and view the site emulating Ipad with Safari, first search from any page works fine and I go to the Search results page. *But* from there, if I try a search while still on the Search Results Archive Page, any typing triggers live search. I’ve double-checked – it should trigger results, just as always.

    Every since I installed this plugin the day before yesterday, I’ve been seeing a host of odd problems, especially related to styling columns for different devices. I didn’t think that could possibly relate to your search plugin but later, I’m going to have to turn it off to see if the other problems go away.

    This sure has cost me a lot of time troubleshooting. 🙁

    Hi,

    Thank you for the details, it helps a lot.

    From the source I was able to see some of the settings passed to the search bars. From what I can see, the triggering of live search is turned on for mobile devices. Make sure it is turned off here: https://i.imgur.com/XdYwR8A.png
    Some handheld devices might be recognized as mobile devices, especially when emulated, so this option applies to them.

    Best,

    I just wanted to report that (of course) correcting the mobile trigger fixed that problem. Had changed it on the original search but not the two new additions. So thank you for the info.

    Just FYI on the other column formatting bug – it wasn’t your plugin causing trouble. I deactivated Search Pro, problem remained. WooCommerce issued an update about an hour ago – that fixed the main problem.

    I still have an issue with Elementor and WooCommerce fighting over which controls the product widgets but that clearly is not Search Pro related, either. (In case anyone else comes to you wondering about same thing.)

    I’m so glad I’ll be able to keep the Search Pro. When I compare its results to the default results it is clear the default is pure junk. 🙂
