WP Search Suggest

This plugin lets you provide the user with search suggestions based on the information entered in the search field.


It adds an AJAX call to the search form, returning matches for the current search query from the database. There is no change of template files necessary as this plugin hooks in the existing WordPress API to unfold its magic.


I will be more than happy to update the plugin with new locales, as soon as I receive them! Currently available in:

  • English
  • Deutsch


  1. Download WP Search Suggest.
  2. Unzip the folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

  1. Hello,

    Week ago I have asked for your permission to translate your WP Google Suggest plugin in Spanish and I didn’t hear any from you since. I hope that you will find time to provide the reply, because we believe that the translation would be of a great use.

    All the best,
