    Thanks Ernest – that worked – and I do appreciate you are working on a weekend – so thanks for your help

    so if I browse the entire ANTIBODY category – https://xenopus.fdmserver.com/antibody you will see lots of results which are paginated

    however if i select ANTIBODIES as the category [it is really a CPT of course] in the search drop down and just click SEARCH without entering a search string – I am only seeing one page of results rather than the full list?

    How can I fix this please? basically – if I elect a category and don’t enter a search string – all results in that category should be returned and paginated

    Thanks

    Philip

    hi Ernest – I also need some help to get the layout to appear in a single line please

    https://xenopus.fdmserver.com

    At present the Category selector drop menu sits below the search bar but I want them to look very similar to this https://www.xenbase.org/entry/

    Regards

    Philip

    Hi Ernest – sorry for the multiple emails – just trying to get this all resolved today for the client

    So, I have the basic layout in place on the DEMO SITE – https://xenopus.fdmserver.com — however I have a few questions;

    1. how can I style the DROP MENU? I want to make the font the same as the Search box etc – see attached screenshot

    2. How can I prevent the search area wrapping when viewed on mobile phone – see attached screenshot

    3. so if I browse the entire ANTIBODY category – https://xenopus.fdmserver.com/antibody you will see lots of results which are paginated

    however if i select ANTIBODIES as the category [it is really a CPT of course] in the search drop down and just click SEARCH without entering a search string – I am only seeing one page of results rather than the full list?

    How can I fix this please? basically – if I select a category and don’t enter a search string – all results in that category should be returned and paginated

    Thanks

    Philip

    Hi,

    I’m sorry I couldn’t answer, my inbox was full of queries I needed to answer first.

    1. Styling a drop-down is sort of limited to browsers, ajax search pro does not use any custom styles, it falls back to the browser defaults. I recommend using custom CSS for this. Some aspects can be changed, others may not. I recommend checking this and this article about possibilities.

    2. You can by forcing a nowrap line break method for the container via custom CSS:

    .asp_shortcodes_container {
       flex-wrap: nowrap! important;
    }

    3. This one is hard to tell, I may need back-end access to check the configuration first. It can be multiple things – like taxonomy or custom field exclusions, limits not set correctly etc..

    Best,
    Ernest Marcinko

    Thank you!

    I found the issue, the post type results limit for the results page was set to 10, so I changed it to 500 here: https://i.imgur.com/JuGPYJ7.png
    It seems to have resolved the problem.

    Thanks Ernest

    Is there an easy way to export the AJAX PRO search from the demo site and import to the live site?

    Regards

    Hi Philip,

    I’m seeing the drop-down menu on both the demo and live sites.

    You can export search bars via the export/import submenu. However I only recommend doing that across test/live sites, where the comlete database is the exact same. Categories can have different IDs on separate installations, that could end up with an issue. In your case it should be okay, as you are not using category exclusions or filters.
