Everything installed OK, but when you type in a search query, it would appear that nothing happens. Scanning their forums will show that this is a condition that recurs for some people.
I posted multiple times on their forums and didn't get any meaningful help.
I'm a big fan of Rocket Theme's templates, and if you can get this module to work, great!
But I invested way too much time to try to get this to work and was not successful. For that reason and for the very limited support on RT's forums for this particular module, I'm giving it a low rating.
Not with rokajaxsearch though, I installed it, enabled the module and it just worked right out of the box.
I'm very pleased with this product as I have just created a custom search plugin for 2.5 with sparse documentation and wasn't sure what the results would be.
The Ajax is picking up my custom plugin and everything just works. 5 Stars.
Please post any support requests in our forum: http://rockettheme.com/forum/index.php?f=204&sid=b2652d6fadf7d4b7b9515ba6fb2ef0c0&rb_v=viewforum
Further, it is extremely disappointing that the support forums are completely locked unless you pay for a subscription plan to access them. Even simply to view previous topics!
The complaints I see here in the reviews don't make a lot of sense to me personally, maybe they're having problems with other plugins they have creating conflicts?
Anyways, you can see where on one site I made at boisebarguide.com I deleted the default search module, installed rokajaxsearch and set it to the search position using their dark theme style. It was literally that quick, took about 30 seconds and I had nice ajax driven search that matches the template. I wish every other module worked this well.
Tested with fresh setup sites with clean mysql, after setup you can`t see this module in the module list. Not recommended.
Currently, on installation, our extensions do not appear in the main module list of the Module Manager. Rest assured, the module has been installed, and you just need to select New > RokAjaxSearch then configure, to use the module.
