WordPress 4.1 support!
Yes, the latest version is WordPress 4.1 ready!
- In case you need a plugin to work with any special WordPress theme, please ask us before your purchase.
- This plugin requires: PHP5.3 running on your webserver (if you don’t know how to update to the latest version, read this),
- a WordPress Version higher or equal 3.6
- a Google Account and
- a ready-to-use Google Custom Search engine (which is free in the basic version).
- If you want to replace the search field that is built-in in your theme (mostly in the header of your webpage) you have to ask your theme author if s/he integrates the form using the common searchform.php. If not, the Google Custom Search for WP Plugin cannot replace it!
- This only works with either a Google Custom Search or a Sitesearch engine.
- The On-Demand-Index and On-Demand-Removal functionality will not work with Googles Web-Engine. It only works with Googles Custom- and/or Sitesearch.
- The difference between Sitesearch and CustomSearch is that the latter is free (and contains ads) where the first costs at least 100 USD a year (click here for more information on Google’s prices).
The current version is 1.2.2 (Jan. 26, 2015). Click here for a full version history.
