    Hello! I recently upgraded to Ajax Pro for the search bar functions and I am having trouble getting the search results to show up in the order I am telling it to. I use Backpack Traveler theme and as far as I can see, I have set destination items to be shown first, followed by blog posts, podcasts and then pages. But no matter how many times I do this, when I go to search and I hit the results page, I am getting a mix of results. For example, when I search “Germany” I am first getting a podcast episode followed by a page I have hidden all in HTML format and then finally a destination item (Munich). When I search New Zealand, I am getting a random old blog post about Mardi Gras first before my destination item “Bay of Islands”. I’m sure it’s an easy fix but from the nearest I can tell, I’ve done everything correctly. Any help would be appreciated. I’ve attached screenshots to show what I mean.

    Thank you so much for your time!

    Hi,

    It does not look like the search override feature is enabled. Can you please make sure it is enabled? That way searches made via the plugin search bar should be sent to the wordpress search handler for replacement.

    Woops yeah I fixed that back to override which helped Germany other than the fact I’m still getting the general category listed as a link twice and then the individual locations along with pictures below but New Zealand is still returning a Mardi Gras blog post first. I tried getting rid of the search in content, but even so, wouldn’t the ordering come first? Shouldn’t the destinations come up first no matter what? Thanks again!

    It should be the same as the live search, exactly this: https://i.imgur.com/QeXdZaO.png

    You can however change to display the post type results first, here: https://i.imgur.com/VAJ1cuS.png
