John at Addicted To New has created a fantastic out of the box “Live Search Plugin” for WordPress. This plugin is configured to use with the default WordPress search form. If you have changed the id attribute of the search form (searchform) or the search input box (s), this plugin will not work.
You can view it in action, at the top left corner on my site.
How to use?
Installation, configuration and usage are just 3 click away.
- Download the plugin
- Unzip and upload the entire folder into your plugins directory
- Login to your administration area and activate the plugin
- Check your Search Form code, if you have made any changes, bring it back to default WordPress code. If you don't have one, you can copy and paste from the under given box.
<div id="search"> <form method="get" id="searchform" action="/index.php"> <input type="text" value="" name="s" id="s" size="12" /> <input type="submit" id="searchsubmit" value="Search" /> </form> </div>
