    Upon activation of this plugin my theme options change drastically (in your FAQ’s section of the plugin you state that this plugin is compatible with all WordPress themes because it acts independently). Activation of this plugin changes the header configuration, theme color and other elements and in fact makes the theme unwieldy. Please go into my WordPress account and see for your self. Also, my FTP log in is SFTP. Please advise

    Hi!

    I just logged in, activated the plugin and flushed the cache just to make sure everything fits, but the site looks exatly the same to me. There is no way the search can affect the layout, simply because the declared stylesheet rules are strictly set to only apply to the ajax search pro elements.

    I don’t see any search shortcodes places on your site. Are you sure you placed the shortcode corretly? In case you placed it into the theme, then a common mistake is that some users try to put it inside a form element, which won’t work, because the search includes a form as well, and a form element inside another form element is an incorrect html output. That might have been the problem, I can’t think of anything else.

    Could you please be more specific of how the problem occured, as I could not replicate it, and I don’t want to change anything on your site, unless it’s neccessary.

    Is the squaretac.com/ url correct? Or is the wordpress under a subdirectory? I can only see a shop embedded via an iframe.

    The squaretac.com is currently using an iframe, this page does not have an issue (this page will be replaced with different content soon). Please visit squaretac.com/home and try looking at it again once your plugin is activated. Thanks.

    Hi!

    It was indeed something wrong. I saved the options randomly a few times on the search and flushed the cache. After refreshing the site it all went back ok. There must have been some kind of inconsistency with the database data and the cached data. It should work now properly.

    Plugin seems to be working now, but I was wondering if there is a way to include the shortcode in the header and not have the results restricted to the header div element. Is there a way that the plugin can have an extended drop down with search results? Thanks.

    Update: The search results are extending upward on Google Chrome and looks really nice, but the search results in Firefox go across the whole page and are moving elements out of the way, and the elements will not go back to their original place unless I refresh the page. Please check this. Thanks.

    Also, I mainly purchased your plugin for one purpose; to search products within a plugin that I am currently using. The plugin is named Spreadplugin, which uses and API from spreadshirt to display products on my webpages. I need your search plugin to display results for those specific products that are being caches onto my pages. Is there a way to accomplish this? Please advise

    Currently, the search results are displaying “no articles in shop, please rebuild cache” for the search results “Team Spartan.

    Hi!

    Right now the plugin looks exacly the same to me on both browsers. I’m not sure if you changed it since then.

    I’m not sure if that’s possible. The search is very flexible, but this might be only possible with some very heavy modifications. And it would also require a remote SQL access to the spreadshirt servers, which I don’t think it’s available. Unless the products are stored in the wordpress database as a custom post type, there is no way to search them. If you have them imported as a custom post type, then it will work just perfectly.

    I just attached a picture of what the plugin is doing on Firefox when I type in a search. I tried clearing my browser history and cache, but it is still happening.

    Here is the Spreadshirt API link: maybe you could make a better plugin for it, or at least maybe this can help improve my search function. https://developer.spreadshirt.net/dashboard.action;jsessionid=7C231B9DD2E347057301E8D14D323C27

    I just left the office, so I will check that firefox thing again tomorrow morning. Could you please post your operating system version, screen resolution and firefox version? I will double check this on another computer as well.

    Sure. Windows 8.0, Firefox 33.0, screen resolution 1920 x 1080. Thanks

    Internet explorer gets rid of your live search capability, and really isn’t working all to well.

    #2703

    Same here. I’m using win8.0, ff33.0 and the same resolution. I also tried on a different computer with a lower resolution, but it still works.
    1. my computer: https://i.imgur.com/ml86kZ2.png
    2. laptop: https://i.imgur.com/5Ih3buM.png

    But my guess is that it somehow get’s out of the boundaries based on your screenshots. I can’t reproduce it, but I might have a solution. Try to add the following CSS code to the search plugins “Theme options->Custom CSS” field:

    
    div[id*=ajaxsearchpro3] {
      max-width: 243px !important;
    }
    

    Will check that IE, that’s a bit tricky. I’ve implemented fallback, but it only should apply with versions below 10. I hate IE, it’s almost impossible to check the version of it on server side, that is probably going to be a bug with the 3.2 plugin version. I’ll do some testing on both computers + virtual machine on that and get back to you with a hotfix.

    Awesome, the provided code seemed to fix the search results from shooting across the screen, but now there is a minor problem. The search results are going below the page profile so all of them cannot be seen. Please look at the picture provided:

    Thanks for your diligence in helping me get this fixed.
