    dear Ernest,

    i wondered if you could suggest how to make the focus of the keyboard automatically set on the Ajax Search Pro bar when my site loads up?

    I found this article (with you offering solutions in it!) on wordpress.org
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/trying-to-automatically-set-focus-in-the-search-box/

    For my site, the search is the main feature – to find a catalog of 900 pages.

    BTW your plugin, which I bought the full version today) is just amazing. It has solved many of my problems. That combined with a WP Sheet Editor Spreadsheet is just the most incredibly sophisticated search database.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the details!

    Try adding this custom code to the functions.php in your theme/child theme directory. Before editing, please make sure to have a full site back-up just in case!

    add_action("wp_footer", "asp_custom_script_wp_footer");
    function asp_custom_script_wp_footer() {
    	?>
    	<script>
    	var inv;
    	jQuery(function($){
    		inv = setInterval(function() {
    			if ( typeof ASP != "undefined" && ASP.initialized ) {
    				$('input.orig').focus();
    				clearInterval(inv);
    			}
    		}, 500);
    	});
    	</script>
    	<?php
    }

    I could not test this, so please be careful.

    Best,
    Ernest Marcinko

    You are amazing! that worked first time.

    I will make a child theme so it doesn’t get lost when i update.

    Many thanks Ernest. I will leave a review on WP and CC

    One last thing (upon testing)

    Can you think of any way to make this work only on the homepage?

    i have a search box on each post and this new code currently takes the focus to the bottom of the page.

    Thanks again

    You are welcome, and thank you for your kind words. Maybe, I think the is_home() might do it.

    add_action("wp_footer", "asp_custom_script_wp_footer");
    function asp_custom_script_wp_footer() {
    	if ( is_home() ) {
    		?>
    		<script>
    		var inv;
    		jQuery(function($){
    			inv = setInterval(function() {
    				if ( typeof ASP != "undefined" && ASP.initialized ) {
    					$('input.orig').focus();
    					clearInterval(inv);
    				}
    			}, 500);
    		});
    		</script>
    		<?php
    	}
    }
    Best,

    That seems to have broken the script, it doesn’t work on home either now.

    Sorry to take up your time!

    If we can’t work it out I will go back to how it was originally.

    Thanks Ernest! Really appreciate your help

    Maybe this variation then:

    add_action("wp_footer", "asp_custom_script_wp_footer");
    function asp_custom_script_wp_footer() {
    	if ( is_front_page() ) {
    		?>
    		<script>
    		var inv;
    		jQuery(function($){
    			inv = setInterval(function() {
    				if ( typeof ASP != "undefined" && ASP.initialized ) {
    					$('input.orig').focus();
    					clearInterval(inv);
    				}
    			}, 500);
    		});
    		</script>
    		<?php
    	}
    }
    Best,
