Ajax Search Pro for WordPress features
The search supports posts, pages, and any kind of custom post type. WooCommerce, Jigoshop, wp-eCommerce, and many other plugins use custom post types – so they are all compatible with Ajax Search Pro.
The plugin provides a customizable front-end settings interface for users. By ticking a few checkboxes the user can change the behavior of the plugin – like looking for exact matches, including/excluding certain post types, categories, or custom taxonomies (like product categories)
Four built-in layouts: Vertical, Horizontal, Polaroid, and Isotopic. 60 pre-defined themes for each layout, including the ones on the demo page.
Three different widgets are provided (latest searches, top searches, and search box), and two shortcodes for each search. Shortcode buttons are also visible on the post editor.
The search has built-in libraries with extreme compatibility for image handling. They can parse through content, excerpt, custom fields, or just simply display the featured image.
