Installing AddSearch plugin to WordPress-site

The AddSearch WordPress plugin allows anybody with a self-hosted WordPress website to install AddSearch easily. The plugin replaces the existing search of your website with AddSearch, allowing your users to enjoy an instant and lightning fast search. (Note that websites hosted on WordPress.com are not supported, due to WordPress limitations.)

Here’s how to install the AddSearch WordPress Plugin:

  1. Go to the AddSearch home page, and sign up with your WordPress site address and your email.
  2. Log in to your WordPress site. Select “Plugins” and click “Add New”. Search for “addsearch”, click “Install Now” and select “OK”.
  3. Open the confirmation e-mail, and from the bottom copy your Site Key.
  4. Go back to your WordPress installation. You’ll see a menu called “AddSearch” on the left, click on it. Paste your Site Key to the field marked “Enter your Site Key”, and press “Save”.
  5. Click on “Appearance” and “Widgets”. Drag the widget called “AddSearch” to where you want the search to appear.
  6. You’re DONE!

To modify the settings of your search, log in to the AddSearch Dashboard.
