How Autocompletion Works

Suggestions will trigger as soon as the user types something in the search bar.

The plugin searches any segment of the suggested words. For example, the suggested word "FAQ" can be triggered with F, A, Q, FA and AQ. You can choose if letter case is taken into account from the plugin settings.

The example below shows this happening incrementally:
