    It is clearly that the author has abandon this plugin. It is such a shame that this great plugin has been abandoned. Anyone here know the alternative of this plugin? Or, perhaps some expert here tried to customize this plugin to make it compatible to the latest version of wordpress?

    I agree that it is a shame this plugin isn't in development any more. If it is any help I did find a similar plugin called Taxonomy Picker.

    Yep, this plugin looks promising, but I am not going to use it since its development has been stopped.

    A shame...

    I installed this plugin on WP 3.4 with the debug bar on - it fills the admin pages with lots of warnings, so is probably not something that should be used without some TLC.

    Thanks for the information, I have decided to give it a try and I installed it. And I must say it performs its job better than plugins such as Relevanssi - in my particular case.

    I do not need a dropdown like the one provided with the taxonomy picker plugin. I am looking for a search plugin that can index metafields. And one that allows me to add more than one search bar, targeting each one a different metafield.

    At the moment, I haven't found anyone that is better than WP Custom Fields Search.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks eyeksoft.

    It looks interesting too, but it doesn't seems to have the possibility to add more than one search (i.e. each search filtered to one specific custom field).

    While this old plugin does give you that option, which is what I am looking for.
