    Hello. I went to demonstrate the search capabilities on this page with the client (we’re launching soon) and the searches were a tad slow. Not sure if there are some settings I can look at.

    Also, some of the searches are coming back with images for some, but not all employees.

    The searches used to be very fast and all images used to be returned. Not sure what could have happened.

    Thank you.

    Bonus: Is there a way to turn off certain aspects of the plugin, prevent it from loading on certain pages, etc.? As it is now, I’m only implementing the search box on the page I gave you a link to. I’m trying to milk all the speed I can…out of the site.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    This sounds really strange to me. Something must have changed if the images disappeared and the performance is slower.

    I can’t log in with the information provided, can you please check that?

    Yes, there are options to turn off javascript features you are not using and there is also a conditional CSS loader implemented (experimental yet). You can find both on the Compatibility Options submenu. For more in-depth optimizations I suggest trying the W3TC caching plugin or any other cache solutions out there.

    Hi!

    I think I know why some images are missing. For example on page “James Tuvell” there is no image, but on page “Eben Joel” there is. The only difference is, that on “James Tuvell” page the featured image is missing. If you set the missing featured images, they should start appearing.

    As for the performance, it’s kind of fluctuating on my end, but the built performance tracker is reporting very low response times (around 0.08 – 0.1 seconds): https://i.imgur.com/8yrGhEK.png
    This means that during the ajax request, ajax search pro only takes 0.08 seconds to finish. The rest of the execution time is the wordpress core loading, other plugins loading, theme loading etc..
    Still, there are number of things you can do to improve the search performance, as described in chapter 18 and 18.1 in the documentation.
    If the suggestions from chapter 18.1 does not make significant changes, I suggest trying to run a few tests with the P3 (plugin performance profiler) plugin to get a better insight on how the site loading time is distributed.

    Thanks for catching the featured images. Solved that issue.

    I hear what you’re saying with the P3 plugin. I’ve ran that before and I’ve tried all kinds of combinations of activating/deactivation plugins. What I found is even with only Ajax Search enabled, the slowness is still there.

    I’ll work through the optimization stuff you sent over.

    Ran through Chapter 18.1. Disabling “Search while typing” was the answer for this particular implementation. Search is fast again. Thanks for all your help!
