Superfast Search can be integrated into your website either as a widget in the sidebar of your site, or as a shortcode:


A number of arguments can be configured which can be used on both the widget and shortcode implementations:


Basic Version


Sets the title of the Superfast Search widget. Appears above the widget.

[superfastsearch title="Search"]

Placeholder Text

Sets the text which appears in the search box.

[superfastsearch placeholder="Search our site..."]

Post Type Titles

Shows the post type name above the results.  By default this is set to true.

[superfastsearch post_titles="false"]

Powered by…

To remove our credit:

[superfastsearch show_powered_by="false"]

Pro version

With the Pro version you can see unlimited search results.

You also have the following new options:

Search Types

Sets the post type to search. By default, the search returns Posts and Pages.

[superfastsearch post_types="post,page"]

Multiple parameters

As in the example above, multiple parameters can be configured by putting them in sequence in the shortcode:

[superfastsearch results=0 types="products"]

Styling Superfast Search

Superfast Search doesn’t style at all by default. We’ve left it this way so that it can either inherit styles from your theme, or so that users can enter their own styles by adding them to their theme stylesheet.

For basic styling, you can do something like the following:

.superfastsearch { /* Search box */
