AJAX Search is live search module for Joomla to filter and display top search results as you type. A click on the result takes you directly to the result page which makes it much quicker to search and find content on your site. It will search through all searchable content getting top results from the main search component with AJAX. It features parameter options for size, button, number of results and more.
Check it out on this page, just start typing a search term in the search module above and see it in action.

The text length of the results summary is taken from the main search component. You can change it in your language localise file, e.g. language/en-GB/en-GB.localise.php in getSearchDisplayedCharactersNumber() function. Here you can also change minimum number of characters to be entered before performing a search - under getLowerLimitSearchWord() function. Note that this will change settings for the main search component as well. You will be able to change these setting independently in PRO version of AJAX Search due soon.
