It’s simple but effective, exactly what I was looking for! Of course, there could be some improvements, but I think those will come with time 🙂

Just enough features to get the ball rolling. The Pro addon is worth the purchase. Hoping the AJAX KB suggestion will also support custom/other post type and taxonomy, where currently it supports only post and category.
