I just wanted to say thanks to the AjaxSearch author who decided to change the names of the most used parameters of AjaxSearch. And therefore killed any call to it after you upgrade to 1.9.x.
The changes have been done with the release 1.9.0 (18th may 2010). Two years before!
If you await two years to upgrade and maintain your site, I understand that it could be painful.
And don't forget that by migrating Modx to 1.0.6 you will get AjaxSearch 1.9.2… Awesome!
Yes, for free. But you are not obliged to use it. Some alternative solutions exist.
And have to spend time changing these parameters manually…
How long does it take to you to do this ? 10 mn ? If your site has been correctly built, the ajaxSearch snippet calls are inside a chunk or a template.
From my side, I spent time during more than 4 years, for developing this addon and for helping people to use it.
Where am I supposed to send my invoice for this extra work?
May be you can first make a donation for using MODx and ajaxSearch.
If you imagine that you can use an addon during two years and then migrate a site without doing something, I suggest you to not work with an open source cms.
Or take a professional service support
to help you.
If you don't to get an idea of the mess it resulted, just google this :
"AjaxSearch error: AS_showForm parameter has been renamed showInputForm. Read ajaxSearch_version_192.txt file."
And you will get at least two result pages of broken AjaxSearch…
What is incredible is that some people imagine that a site could be migrated without efforts and without doing some non regression tests.
