Hi, I’m using the latest version and I’m correctly seeing error messages such as:

You did not submit a search term
Search terms must be at least 3 characters in length

with Ajax rendering, but when I input an actual correct search phrase, I get the above error message.
I attach the configuration…

My version of the plugin is the latest: 2.4.2

Thank you for your help

I suspect this is one of the EE forms that CSM will not work on. There are a few where it will force an http redirect and not return a string, thus it isn’t returning a string/json response.
