Display Ajax search post Result

We have voluntarily dissociated the search input location from the result location. this allows easy customisation of element location and result display

the ajax taxonomy serach result short code is very simple, takes the following argument

  • post_type (defaults = post) : post type search
    [astSearchResults post_type="attachment"]
  • size (default = thumbnail) : thumnail image size, useful if want to get away from wordpress 150x150 default thumbnail size
    [astSearchResults post_type="attachment" size="rectangle150x100nc"]

Yes you can search attachments (images) for instance. And yes you can use taxonomies for attachments !

using Ajax Taxonomy Search with images

Taxonomy for images/ attachment

    • You have the choice of displaying the link the attachment parent page using WORDPRESS SEO BY YOAST configuration. If you don't like this very powerful plugin that does many other things, simply use Attachment Pages Redirect (I have not tested this one)

Featured Image for taxonomy terms

    • on the other side, you can also add featured image to your taxonomy termswo. AST shortcode is fully compatible with Taxonomy images
