This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP Google Suggest


This plugin uses an abstraction of jQueryUI’s autocomplete widget that interacts with the unofficial/undocumented Google Suggest API.
Props go to Haochi Chen.

It adds an AJAX call to the search form, returning matches for the current search query.
Make sure the searchform input field has id="s" applied, so this plugin can hook in the existing WordPress API to unfold its magic.


I will be more than happy to update the plugin with new locales, as soon as I receive them!
Currently available in:

  • English
  • Serbian


  1. Download WP Google Suggest.
  2. Unzip the folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Make sure the search form input field has id="s" or name="s".


Why are there no suggestions, when I enter a searchterm?

To pick up the user entry, the Plugin needs the search input field to have id="s", like in the default Themes that come with WordPress.
