    Hi!

    Please update your plugin to version 3.5. It is available for download on codecanyon.

    Carefully follow the steps for updating, since you are using a hihgly outdated version: https://wp-dreams.com/knowledge-base/updating-from-older-versions/

    Let me know if the problem persist after the successful update.

    Upgrade is complete!
    1) Genearal Options – Sources 2
    Available taxonomies is empty! So i can`t include the taxonomies! see attachment1

    2)is it possible to set an exclusive image for each returned category?

    3) Frontend Search Settings options>Show the Suggested phrases
    By clicking on the search phrase does not always work. why?

    4) Advanced Options – Exclude categories
    why not in the list of all categories?

    5) “Frontend and search settings – Drag here the categories you want to exclude!”
    Now i nave only needed categories! Ok! But if click on “uncheck” field of each category, result is not empty… is it possible to check some category and get search results this category posts only? see attachment2

    Hi!

    1. Do you have any taxonomies? I can't see any. This function uses the wordpress built in get_taxonomies function, so it should return the taxonomies if you have any registered.

    2. Categories doesn't have images by default. If the image is stored as some kind of custom field, it might be possible to retrieve it and create filtering function based on this article: https://wp-dreams.com/knowledge-base/showing-the-post-type-name-in-post-title/

    3. I just tested, it works for me. Can you explain when it's not working? I tried it several times on your frontpage, and it worked everytime.

    4. It was because empty categories are hidden in wordpress by default. I made a quick modification, now all the 136 categories are visible. (even the empty ones)

    5. You need to exclude all those categories which you don't want to use on the “Advanced Options -> Exclude categories” as well.

    Hi!

    It's because that is only for the fronted search settings box, it does not actually exclude the category, it only makes it invisible on the frontend. To exclude the category go to the Advanced Option panel, and there you can do it. It's all explained in the documentation.

    I already excluded the Hidden Category so you should not see the posts from there now.

    It should return categories, it must have been only the cache. Please try again.

    Yes I do, but it's not possible to do with the same search instance. By excluding a category will exclude both the category and the posts as well.
