Layout options -> Results Behaviour -> Highlighter and More features
It is possible to highlight the search phrase in the live results list. Within these options you can change the:
Highlighter text color and background
and to highlight whole words or partial words as well
Scroll to the first keyword match if possible? option is enabled, the plugin will try to scroll to the first keyword match, after redirecting to the single result.
If you want to programatically specify a part of the result page to apply the highlighter and scroll feature on, then use the
Result page content jQuery element selector option. This is useful when the search phrase might appear outside of the post body container (in a widget, footer or menu etc..), and you want to make sure those appearances are not highlighted.
