    Hey,

    I am still having a slue of other issues with the plugin. The drop down arrows are still not displaying in the front end search. along with a scroll bar for the multi select option. once i select multi select the box does not expand and many of the options do not display at all, even if i click and drag it selects all the ones that are visible only. there are still options that are not visible when i switch it back to the basic dropdown those options display so i know that my configurations are correct. Am i able to add a search button so that the user has to press search and is redirected to a seperate results page? You had told me earlier on that this was possible but it is very very difficult to get it to work. Also how do i get rid of the filter by custom post type and the stones check box at the begining of the search on the left side? Please help me as i need to get this to work, i appreciate it. Please refer to the screenshot below.

    Hi!

    I see you are using the “block” layout for the front-end filters. That layout inherits the theme styles, so there must be a theme CSS rule somewhere disabling the drop-down arrows, as there is no rule in the plugin doing that. Most likely every issue with the select/multiselect is related to a 3rd party CSS (most likely theme). Without actually seeing the page, I’m not able to tell what is causing that, nor a way to fix it if possible.

    To hide the custom post type selector just go to the Frontend search settings -> Post types panel and remove the items: https://goo.gl/QlfF9j

    To display a search button only is a bit problematic, as it’s part of the whole search bar. If you choose to display the search bar, it will display the search as well. However it might be possible to hide all the items from the search bar except the icon or button.

    This custom CSS will hide everything in the search bar, except the search icon:

    .prosettings, .proinput, .proloading, .proclose {
        width: 0 !important;
        display: none !important;
    }

    Then you need to force the proper width for the search bar, in my case was 95px, but you might need lower:

    .asp_main_container {
        width: 95px !important;
    }

    In this case however you probably want to place the search button next to the settings. To achieve that I would use the search shortcode on the right and the settings shortcode on the left in a two column container, something like:

    In this case, don’t forget to turn off the Hide search box option on the Layout Options -> Search box layout panel: https://i.imgur.com/ujJ7wxo.png

    I’m not sure if this would work, but it’s the best way I can think of to implement.

    Best,

    Hello Ernest,

    Thank you for the response, This is the only way to get the search button working? And how would it then redirect to a different search page, I still have not receive the answer to that. If i do not implement the redirect via submit, and continue using the ajax method, I will be required to add additional information to the results. As it stands the results display the title the featured image and content. Is there a way to add meta values to the results? after all we are using the custom fields to search. for example: I have a meta field stone_price, I would like for this value to appear along side the title and featured image. I understand that i would have to make additions to the template files, is there another way to do this so that it will not get overwritten on the updates? Also there is no mention of a reset button, How would i go about creating one in order to allow the users to reset the search?

    Also If i upgrade the plugin will I have to renter all the settings? Thank you for your patience and help.

    Hi!

    Redirection info in documentation: https://goo.gl/eEh0FX

    To add custom field values, you can use the advanced title and description fields on the Advanced Options -> Content options panel. More infor in the documentation: https://goo.gl/XeKf8H

    There is a way to use templating so it does not get overwritten (by making copies of the original files to the active theme folder under the /asp/ folder), please read the knowledge base article: https://goo.gl/yor6p4

    Another possible way is to use filters, which are update proof as well, as it does not affect the plugin code directly. Example:
    Knowledge base – Custom field in result titles

    I only recommend creating a reset button if you have good experience in HTML and jQuery. I recommend creating a button, and attach a “click” event handler to it via jQuery script. This script would then change the values of the specified selectors. But I guess there are other approaches as well.

    The latest update (4.9) has a few fundamental changes that are not backwards compatible. Other settings should remain untouched.

    Hello Ernest,

    Thank you for the reply, I am having problems downloading the updated plugin from codecanyon, when i download it it is still the old version. Also i noticed a major bug on touch screen devices with the range slider it does not work well at all. it will not allow you to grab the markers individually how would i go about fixing these issues ?

    Hi!

    The slider bug is known, it will be fixed as soon as possible, within the next release. Unfortunately there is no quick fix for that, it requires a script update involving multiple files.

    The version number should be 4.9.1 of the one you donwload from codecanyon, after installation. The file name is the same, they do not change that, the contents should be however the newest.
