I know the Sabai Forum plugin on CodeCanyon has an auto-suggestion feature for the sear bar. Do you guys have something similar for wpForo or plan on doing something similar in the future?

@alvina How did you enable that on the forum? I cant seem to get that to work for my site or on wpForo's forum either...

@tonyatfonsori,

There is no specific option for that. This is a build-it functionality. 

Please leave your forum URL to allow us to check it.

@tonyatfonsori,

As far as I see your forum is empty. Once you create new topics and post, then the search bar functionality automatically will work.

No. That is your browser form data cache. It is not an auto suggestion/autocomplete built from keywords in the search table.

That was what I thought too. Was so confused. @alvina @robert Do you guys have autocomplete or plan on having it in the future or not?

@alvina Cool thank you. I think you guys can just see if there are any autocomplete ajax search plugins available and integrate them to make it faster for development. 

Best regards
