Search woes… now Ajax pro blocked by Elementor firewall?

I’ll preface this by saying I’m a novice with WordPress and not very experienced with back end stuff in general. I had no idea I’d have so many issues trying to get my site search working successfully

I want it to
– index all pages including custom post types
– index category pages (search for a term, pull up the archive page it’s part of)
– index my table press tables (this one’s a big one)

I was pretty close to happy with WP Extended Search but it doesn’t do Tablepress

I tried Search WP but I just got frustrated with it – I don’t think I have the skills to get it to do what I want to do.

Now trying Ajax Search Pro and it seems like I might finally have found the holy grail… and now Elementor is blocking me from saving the index results??? I’m getting a response

“Dang! That was blocked by our firewall.
Check your connection and try again soon.
If you keep getting this error, contact the site owner.” [helpful when I’m the site owner, not]

Anyone have any experience with this?
