This product integrates with the quicksearch drop down box in NAVBAR; and suggests popular threads while the visitor is typing in search keywords.

Read INSTRUCTIONS.txt for installation instructions.

NOTICE: To fine-tune and configure "relevancy threshold" you must edit /includes/cron/autocomplete-generate.php file. Default installation assumes you have a big discussion forums and suggests only threads which have more than 1000 replies or 1000 views. Edit this number, the query looks like this:

Thanks for this fine work. Seems to be working fine for me.

Question - the autosearch only seems to populate with matches/suggestions when I am in a sub-forum itself and not from Forum Home or any other place on the site. Is this the default behavior or is there something I can change to have it "autocomplete/suggest" topics from anywhere on the site?

Is the author going to provide support for this?

nah, it looks like it is currently not supported by the author, but I am still really glad they shared it. I am currently about to enable the function on my server that was disabled (due to the tightened security on my server)

I've followed word by word and enabled the system and exec execution in php.ini...unfortunately the cron job doesn't write anything to data.txt (although it creates the file with 0 byte).

We have our own dedicated servers but the hack doesn't work

Try chmodding the directory and/or the data file 777; it's either not writeable or the server does not have support for "sed".

There is no autocomplete.php; there is autosearch.php, that goes into your forum root folder; then the cron job .php file goes into the /forumroot/includes/cron folder; that's it in terms of file uploads.

Your instructions mate not mine

STEP #2) Configure writeable directory path in PHP files. To do this, open AUTOCOMPLETE.PHP and /includes/cron/AUTOCOMPLETE-GENERATE.PHP files and FIND & REPLACE:

You are right, I am wrong. AUTOSEARCH.PHP; not AUTOCOMPLETE.PHP in the forums root. Sorry about that.

OK, got this working after uninstall/reinstall...

Apostrophes (') are not working for me in Safari/Firefox (pc & mac). I'm seeing question marks (?) instead. Also, and maybe this is how it's written for now; but it doesn't work in individual forum's search boxes (or sub-forums) for me, but only in the main forum (home) search box (navbar area)...is this as it should be for now? If so, a request...please add it's functionality everywhere!

I assume we can change highlight colors etc via CSS (the grey and white color scheme, navy blue highlight etc)? If so, where?

Other than that, it's very cool and works for me now. Thank you.

Can this hack be changed so it populates the search box with popular thread titles and not take you directly to the thread?

For example, if someone searches for "Tickle me Elmo", I get a few suggestions. However, when they click on the suggestion, they are taken to very old threads. I would like the thread title to populate the search box and then a regular search is performed based on which auto suggested thread title that was selected.
