Hi, I realllllly want to use this plugin but I've spent hours trying to get it to work with no success. Feel free to delete my last post about ASP.NET, I've gone a different route.

So, I'm on a windows server with php 5.2, I wrote a php script that sends back

header("Content-type: application/json");
echo json_encode($data);

You can see it in action here:

Feel free to change the "q" to whatever for different search results. The form I'm using to call it is located here:

All I get is the "No Results" item, someone PLEASE help me out here.

    NM, I got it by adding the following

    selectedItemProp: "name", selectedValuesProp: "value", searchObjProps: "name"

    Not be a hard on about this, but you should probably update your blog to show you need these things in the section that shows the php code and such. I spent a lot of time for it to be such a simple fix.

    Wow.. I had the same issue, simple fix, but the documentation implies that you don't need to do this at all.
