I’m new to your WP Google Search plugin. I have the plugin installed and configured with my API Key. When logged in as the WP Admin I have no problem using the plugin. When I’m not logged in I encounter an “Oops! That page can’t be found.” page. When I go to the URL below whiled logged in as WP Admin, I see the page. When I’m not logged in the URL below gives me the same error. Could this be a permissions related issue?
Thank you.22/11/2018 at 22:56Keymaster
I tried the search on the given link, it works without problems if I’m not logged in. The search box and the result set is displayed.23/11/2018 at 00:44Participant
Thank you for checking. It is now working. Not sure why I encountered the initial error.

I am having basically the same issue, except, I am sure it is NOT permissions. When doing a search from the widget I get the exact issue. It only works when logged in and the widget goes to the page “http://www.mwsolut.com/search_gcse/?q=item searched”. When not not logged in the search from the widget does not work, and it also goes to “http://www.mwsolut.com/search_gcse/?q=item searched”. However doing doing a search from the page “http://www.mwsolut.com/search_gcse/” using the search embedded with in the page content does NOT take me to “http://www.mwsolut.com/search_gcse/?q=item searched”. Instead it takes me to “http://www.mwsolut.com/?s=item+searched”. The URL differs as does the handling of the information placed into the search bar. In the widget does not replace spaces between the words with a “+” between each word entered into the search, but also adds “search_gcse/?q=” to the URL. The search page instead adds “?s=” followed by the words entered into the search bar, but replaces all spaces with “+”. I am leaving the widget in place so you can see the results.
I created a search using custom HTML widget for the WP Google Search and it works fine. I called it “HTML Google Search”, and used the following html:
<form action=”/” method=”get”>
<input type=”text” name=”s”><input type=”submit” value=”Submit”>
This works but the widget from the plugin does not. Go to my site to see what I mean…05/02/2019 at 22:06
P.S. The Google Search called “HTML Google Search” is my widget. The one further down was already there after installing WP Google Search.05/02/2019 at 22:07
Also not sure mine is doing a google search…06/02/2019 at 06:26Keymaster
I can’t see the problem on your site. I’ve entered a search term in the search field of Google Search widget and the results have appeared without any problem.
Of course I was not logged in. So I don’t know how to reproduce this situation.
