Search Shortcodes
Search shortcodes
There are four different shortcodes available for each search instance.
1. The search box shortcode
2. Settings shortcode (optional)
3. Results shortcode (optional)
4. Two column shortcode (optional)
Each of these shortcodes can be placed into any post/page or custom post type content or into the theme files.
You can find these shortcodes on each search instance options page.

Search box (Simple) shortcode

This is the most used, all-around shortcode. It places the search form anywhere on your site.

Format:

[wpdreams_ajaxsearchpro id=1]

Parameters:

    id (integer) - the id of the search instance

Settings shortcode (optional)

Shortcodes for placing the settings box elsewhere, but on the same page where the search shortcode is.

Format:

[wpdreams_asp_settings id=1 element='div']

Parameters:

    id (integer) - the id of the search instance

Results shortcode (optional)

Shortcodes for placing the results box elsewhere, but on the same page where the search shortcode is.
The results shortcode is not made to be used as a custom results page! It is only to position (detach) the live search results list away from the search bar, on the same page.

Format:

[wpdreams_asp_results id=1 element='div']

Parameters:

    id (integer) - the id of the search instance

Two column shortcode (optional)

Will place a search box (left) and a result box (right) next to each other, like the one on the demo front page.

Format:

[wpdreams_ajaxsearchpro_two_column id=1 search_width=50 results_width=50 invert=0 element='div']

Parameters:

    id (integer) - the id of the search instance
    search_width - (integer) the search bar width (in %, not px)
    results_width - (integer) the results box width (in %, not px)
    invert - (0 or 1) inverts the search and results box position from left to right
