    Hi Folks

    When i click on the search box of our home page

    https://dev.shoppingonline.ie/

    The categories do not seem to be sorted alphabetically. Where is this configured ?

    Thanks

    Scott

    Thanks that worked !

    Just one thing though, the scroll seems to stop at Camera shops, the scroll should scroll down and view them all. Can you tell us how to change this.

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for your reply. Kindly insert the custom CSS code below to fix this. Insert into WP > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.

    ul.gdasac-category {
        height: 150px!important;
    }

    Hi

    Unfortunately that did not work, so just to confirm is the problem with the theme or plugin ? I would prefer this added as a fix as apposed to a custom fix. We can certainly wait for this added in the next release.

    Many thanks

    Scott

    The Search bar Search for field, when autocomplete is enabled, will show the first ten categories that have listings. It will not show more than that because it will also show post titles, which, when all shown together, are usually long enough to push past a full page height.

    Hey Alex

    Apologies but this is pretty bad, autocomplete should have nothing to do with category selection. Best practice would be when you click on the search bar all categories are shown if you scroll up and down and if you decide not to use the categories selection and you start to type a word then as you mentioned if autocomplete is enabled then it tries to give the best match.

    Can we get this fixed please ?

    If not is it possible to break these down into two searchable fields ? One only for categories and the other only for text search that will not show categories ?

    Thanks

    Scott

    10 is just the default setting for autocomplete.

    In the advanced search options, make sure to click the blue “show advanced” button

    You can set how many categories are shown, or disable the category or listings autocomplete.

    GeoDirectory – Settings – Advanced Search – Show Advanced
