About WP Live Search

FAQ

How do I work it?

It’s a shortcode. Add [wp_live_search] to a page. See above for some options.

What is required for this to work?

The WP REST API (V1) plugin (the official one) from the WordPress REST API Team.

Does it support featured images?

Yes

Does it support showing content?

Yes

Does it support custom post types?

Yes

Can I use multiple on one page?

No

Can I disable the style sheet from loading?

Yes just use define('WPLS_DISABLE_STYLE', true) and the CSS file will not load. However you will want to make sure you at least copy over .wpls–show and .wpls–hide. JS uses these classes for things and the search may not appear correctly without them.

Can I override the display item?

Yep! Just copy over the function from underscore-template.php (without the function exists) and drop it into any plugin. Note, pluggable functions wont run in a theme file, themes run too late, so this needs to be in a plugin file. From here you can modify the temlate as needed.
