The difference between Live Search and Yith WooCommerce Ajax Search

In the PORTO theme, there are two types of searchs.

  • Theme Live Search

1. Theme Live Search: To use this feature you have to first enable it from the Porto >> Theme Options >> Header >> Search Form >> Live Search see the below image:


This option will help the user to see the live results in the search bar of the header when the user tries to type the term in the search field. and, the User has to choose the specific term result by clicking on the live search result dropdown, by pressing the enter key will show nothing because it is a live search and it is built like this in the theme.

2. YITH WooCommerce AJAX SEARCH: It is a third-party plugin that comes with the theme package. It is fully compatible with the theme. You can install this plugin from the PORTO >> Setup Wizard >> Plugins. This plugin will also use for the live search. You just need to install the plugin and activate it after that try to search for a term in the search bar and while using this plugin if the user presses the enter key after typing the term in the search bar it will show the results on the search result page and also, the user will be able to choose a specific term from the live search results dropdown.

Note: Using both live searches same time will conflict and cause unexpected issues on the site.
