I really like the SEARCH API and have been playing with Search api live results. I have two questions about this though:
Is there a way to bold the the part of the live search result that matches what i've typed so far? Ex: if i've written "cat" and there's a node with the title "caterpillar" the live search results will show "caterpillar" I know that Search api autocomplete does something, but I was wondering how to do so with this module. I did check out this tutorial but I want to modify the content that appears below the search box, not in the search page.
My second question is: Is there a way to have the results (again, not the ones on the search page, but the ones generated below the search box) organized in subsections, by contentype.Ex: I type cat and there are results of content type a, content type b, content type c.
Would I be able to do this with a view or would I have to write code to do this?
I think I found the function that generates the html for the live results. I’ve attached an image of it.
In this function, I can see how a live-result-search-item div is created but I haven’t quite fully figured out how they generate the href inside it. I feel like it's done in another jquery function which I've also attached an image of.
I posted an answer. I still haven't figured out how to group items by content type though.
