    We have bought Ajax search pro product and require solution for following. We are using wordpress along with Elementor Pro.
    We have many documents that are categorised and navigated through those categories. We would like to restrict the search to selected category through front end search settings “Filter by categories”. We are not able to limit the scope of search to selected category. Search is happening on all categories. Please provide the solution for the same.

    Hi!

    It’s a bit hard to tell only by a screenshot – but as first suggestion I would recommend trying different variations for these options: https://i.imgur.com/nFF6jt2.png
    Those options are usually the culprit if something is not showing up as it should.

    We have tried many combinations but not able to limit the scope of the search to selected categories.When we switch off “show post/CPM…..” nothing is shown in the result(ref: screen ). We have only pages categorised in to many. This feature is critical to our website. Appreciate your help in resolving this issue.

    Those numbers just basically show how many elements (posts or other post types) are associated with them. If it shows 0 – then it means, there are no items associated with that category, therefore filtering by it will return nothing as well.
    You can assign these categories to the posts on the post editor panel.
