    We have noticed that when we type a search into the WordPress search and it passes via URL – that the search populates into our AJAX Search Pro box – but it is not actually performing the search. Is there a way to make the tool read the URL variable “s” and perform that initial search? We are trying to come to this page from the main search icon in the navigation.

    I already provided FTP access on a previous ticket.

    Hi!

    It is actually possible, as the plugin triggers whenever the ‘asp_s’ query variable is set. So, I have added a small custom snippet into the functions.php file in the theme directory via FTP, that sets that variable whenever the ‘s’ query var is set.

    For future reference, this is the custom code:

    add_action('init', 'asp_trigger_search_get');
    function asp_trigger_search_get() {
        if ( !is_admin() && isset($_GET['s']) && $_GET['s'] != "" )
    		$_GET['asp_s'] = $_GET['s'];
    }
    Best,
