    Hi support team,

    I am new to Ajax Search Pro and I want to ask if it is possible to use the search functionality of the plugin without the search bar:
    so I only want to use the checkboxes, dropdown and radio buttons to filter my results. No need for my visitors to enter any search text.
    Can I trigger the search without displaying the search bar ?

    Many thanks for your help…

    Hi!

    Actually, it is possible. Since you are not the first to ask, I’ve quickly put together a knowledge base article: https://wp-dreams.com/knowledge-base/how-to-use-filters-only-and-hide-the-search-bar/

    Let me know if that helped!

    Many thanks for your reply.
    I have the problem that the search does not work. The circle in the searchbar rotates but no results will be displayed. I disabeled my caching plugins (autoptimize and wp-rocket) and deleted the gzip and deflate in the htaccess but still it doesn’t work.
    How can I debug the problem ?
    Or can you have a look at my installation ?

    Thaks and best regards,

    Hi!

    You are getting a 403 error on the ajax_search.php file – it means that the installation is forbidden to access the custom ajax handler.

    On the Compatibility Settings submenu turn off the Use the custom ajax handler? option: https://i.imgur.com/Zykr9ag.png

    After saving, make sure to empty the cache and refresh a few times to make sure this change is applied. It should solve the problem.
