Read this blog on WordPress search page ajax for more information.
AJAX is a very powerful and flexible tool that allows developers to create more streamlined applications. It can be used for a wide range of purposes such as loading content or verifying login credentials.
The main benefit of AJAX is that it is asynchronous, meaning the whole page doesn’t need to reload in order for it to receive new data.
WordPress is well-equipped for AJAX. It has a great mechanism for working with it, allowing you to implement AJAX functionality with little fuss.
AJAX is completely independent of frameworks such as WordPress. You could implement it any way you like. There is, however, built-in support in WordPress for an AJAX workflow.
There are a few plugins that will add Ajax search for you, but what if you wanted to integrate it into your theme yourself for more control over functionality and appearance? Let’s see what we can do.
