AJAX Configuration

As of version 1.4, search forms can be configured to use AJAX queries instead of the traditional request method.
Enabling AJAX for your search can provide users with a more seamless experience by not requiring a full page reload to show results. AJAX configuration is set by extending the ‘form’ section of your arguments array like so:

$args['form']['ajax'] = array(
// arguments here
);

Be aware that using an AJAX-enabled search requires a different approach to setting up your page templates. See this page for templating instructions.
