    Paid Mod AJAX Instant Search

    Make your vBulletin 5 Search functionality more interactive by making it show instant results while user is typing keywords in the header Search box.

    This plugin is very useful for forums that have a lot of content and users who want to find relevant information quickly and easily. It also enhances the user experience and makes your forum look more modern and dynamic.

    Features:
    1. Uses AJAX to keep the user on the same page without page refresh.
    2. Search result URL still updates in the browser address bar even without page refresh. This allows users to copy the URL and share it to others like you normally do on a regular search results page.
    3. Opens the instant search results in a modal dialog without obscuring the Search box in the header. It still allows user to continue typing in the Search box even when the modal dialog is shown.

    4. It preserves the users doing instant search to still show "Searching Forums" on the Who's Online page even if the instant results appear in a modal dialog and not on a regular search results page.
    5. If you are using Google Analytics, doing instant search will still fire the "page_view" event for the Search Results page as if the instant results modal was loaded on a regular page. This means you will not lose page views in Google Analytics just because the search results opened in a modal dialog and not on a regular search results page.
    6. Posts in the search results still have the usual controls/features working such as highlighted keywords, See More link, Go to Post link, Like button, Name Card popup for username links (if enabled). Profile Preview Tooltip mod (if installed and enabled)
      • If you have the Post Footer Go to Bottom and and Post Footer Go to Top mods by vBMods.rocks installed, you need to hide them in the Instant Search Results modal dialog since those mods were not designed to work inside a modal. To do that, add this in css_additional template:
        Code:
        #instantSearchResultContainer .js-post-footer-go-to-bottom, #instantSearchResultContainer .js-post-footer-go-to-top { display: none; }
    7. The pagination controls in the Instant Search Results modal dialog stays in place at the bottom as you scroll the modal up and down. This makes the controls always visible and easily accessible.
    8. For usability, the instant search only works on Desktop (includes Tablets if not modified to use Mobile view). It does not support Mobile because the Search box in Mobile is shown in a dropdown and there's limited space to show the results while the user continues to type in the Search box and the on-screen keyboard is displayed.
    9. Does not require editing templates. Simply install the Product XML in AdminCP and upload files on the server using FTP or cPanel.
    10. Configurable mod options:

      I have updated the mod with these changes:
      1. It preserves the users doing instant search to still show "Searching Forums" on the Who's Online page even if the instant results appear in a modal dialog and not on a regular search results page.
      2. If you are using Google Analytics, doing instant search will still fire the "page_view" event for the Search Results page as if the instant results modal was loaded on a regular page. This means you will not lose page views in Google Analytics just because the search results opened in a modal dialog and not on a regular search results page.
