    I am using your Ajax Search Pro. And I got a problem that my filter list is too long which doesn’t look user friendly. I added a category filter which has over 200 items. User need to scroll from the top of the filter list to the bottom to select or update the filter which is a bit hard to do it in the long list.

    Is it able for me to customize the filter (checkbox style) to support search in the filter? I want to do something similar to the following link:

    https://www.freelancer.ca/freelancers/

    Please check the skill filter. It is a search box with auto-suggest. And when you click on the auto-suggest, it will add the filter to the top.

    Hi!

    Unfortunately there is no easy modification for that – that feature requires a specific HTML layout as well as a custom script that would do the search.

    For now, the best solution is probably to switch from the checkbox layout to a drop-down layout instead: https://i.imgur.com/ljWlfRt.png

    In a future release, the following solution is going to be implemented: https://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/
    It’s already under testing, I’m hoping to use this as soon as possible.

    Best,

    wow! Really fast response! May I know know when will your solution be implemented? Will it be soon or will it be a long way to go?

    Thanks 🙂

    I’m hoping to push the next update by the end of this week or the start of the next one. Depending on how fast codecanyon approves the update. If I can’t make it to this one, then the next one for sure, that is another 3 weeks I would say.

    Unless there are unexpected complications, this should be available in the upcoming release, thus within a week.

    Best,
