I’m using Ajax Search Pro on a site that has Ultimate Member running. On the ‘User’ page that dynamically loads the logged in member profile info I have an area at the top of the page that contains an AdRotate plugin advert area.
This has all been working fine until I inserted the shortcode for an AdRotate Group advert into this advert space. Now when you click into the search box a new tab is opened with a link to one of the URL links that the AdRotate Group advert has programmed in. When I remove the group advert and place a shortcode for a single AdRotate advert into the page everything goes back to normal.
Having looked at the AdRotate setup it states that the Group option uses JQuery to dynamically load the group adverts without refreshing the page and this looks like the source of my problem.
I know that this could be an issue caused by the AdRotate plugins use of JQuery and hence falls into the 3rd party no support area but as both Ajax Search Pro and AdRotate are very popular plugins I would appreciate if you could advise regards the conflict and what I can do to rectify it?
I will also send this issue to the Ajax Search Pro support to get their take on the problem.
Thanks in advance.June 28, 2017 at 11:11 pm #32906
Further to the above the developer of the Ajax Search Pro plugin has come back with this analysis of the problem:
It’s very likely due to a minor programatical error within the ad script, or it can be something with the configuration as well. I’m not familiar with how it works, but I’m guessing that the ads are being placed to certain positions on the page by the script. A small error within the part where this position gets retrieved could very well explain this behavior.
Essentially the issue is caused by these link tags injected to the page, which surround some content elements (including the search bar), and when clicking on the search, you actually click on a link that contain the search, therefore you get redirected.
I was going to pay for the Pro version of AdRotate but the search function is integral to my site so if if this can’t be fixed I will unfortunately have to look for an alternative.

I’m not familiar with ajax search plugins, but generally for an advert to (re)load you need to reload the page also. Such search plugins do not do that.
So rotation of adverts will be hindered a bit. Once loaded though, AdRotate is finished doing things. So your tab opening or random outputs are not likely something AdRotate does. Perhaps the advert you’re using. But logically not AdRotate since there is no AdRotate code running or being called at that point.July 3, 2017 at 3:47 pm #33270
Here is a screenshot that the Ajax Search Pro developer took of the code on the page when the problem occurs:

On further investigation the offending code looks like it comes from ClickMeter which I’m using to track the responses to the adverts.
I’ve created a support ticket with ClickMeter and will let you know when they get back to me.

Looks like you have a
< a>tag too many in the adcode – Right behind the
Try removing that as well.
