    If it does, the flood limit work not actually as whatever we / the user type will be requested each and every time.

    I have Elasticsearch installed so if it's something we can use, it would be great.

    We need AngularJS for ElasticSearch ;-) Ajax with MySQL is not fast enough for auto complete (as google does, for example).

    This shouldn't be to hard to implement. I already saw nice solutions for that in xf boards. Unfortunatly they won't share, thats why I am looking for myself. Maybe this helps: ?

    Actually I hoped that a Live Search would already be implemented in the enhanced search plugin, considering the price. At the moment it's not worth the price ... for my purposes.
    XenForo Developers should work on that...
