searchkick's autocomplete does not work on my iphone safari?

General • Asked by Jeramae Bohol

I've implemented elasticsearch/searchkick on my rails app and it works both in development and production on desktop browsers. But I noticed that the autocomplete does not work on safari on my phone. I reviewed the searchkick's docs and I've seen nothing about this issue. Anyone?


Hey Jeramae,

Are you using jQuery autocomplete for the frontend? I wonder if that's having trouble on Safari or something. It isn't likely to be the server-side ElasticSearch or Searchkick stuff if it's working fine in other browsers.


Just turned out that I didn't include the autocomplete method on the before_action exception for authentication.


That'd do it, glad you got it fixed. 🙌
