    The plugin still works, but is (i believe) the only plugin that provides this type of search (options). Any chance that this plugin get developed further in the future?

    I've put out a minor update today, this fixes a few small bugs and pulls in a few bits of code that I've written for bespoke projects.

    I'm hoping to do a bigger rewrite soon, when this happens I will be moving to some kind of paid for model, possibly a free version and a premium version. I am hoping this will fund the time I need to push forward with development and to support the project, so there should be a lot more upgrades / fixes on the way.

    I wouldn't mind if you turn the plugin in a paid version. I just discovered this plugin and I am struggling to get it to work with custom fields in custom post types. I find it strange that there is no good solution for this. It seems to me that this type of drill-down search is pretty common, like in real estate, ecommerce etc. Surely there must be a demand for this.

    Anyway, I hope you will be successfull in overhauling and monetizing your plugin.

    Are you sure it still works with the latest WP version 3.5.1?
    I could not get it to work. I did a fresh install to test. No other plugins, just one post with a custom field and two tags.
    The plugin returns no results at all.

    @eagerbob, it's definitely working on my test install of WordPress 3.5.1 .

    On your site the search does return one result if you don't type anything into the fields so I can only assume that the fields aren't matching up to the db correctly?

    If the "tag" field represents a wordpress tag then the correct widget config would be:

    Data Type=Tag

    then I would usually use:

    Compare=Equals
    Widget=DropDown

    although you could use:

    Compare=Words In (or Phrase In)
    Widget=Text Input
