WP Query Search Filter

    Hello there, im a noob with this WP, and got some problems I've been trying to solve, but it wont let me.

    I created a simple Custom Meta Field, so I can search for colors on my website. In the options I name them all different colors like, red, blue yellow and so on.
    Now my question is, when I pick 1 of the options, lets say blue, it say it can't find any results on my page, and thats not true. Obviously I am doing something wrong, maybe with the meta tags, but I don't know.

    If you could help me out with this, I will be forever thanksful. And sorry about the noobish question.

    First of all your must have those colors in your post's meta field.

    Then if you want to use the plugin, you should insert the option exactly same as you inserted to your post custom field. eg, if your post custom field value is 'Red',then in the plugin option you should enter 'Red', not 'red'.

    Also beware of the 'Boolean relationship between the meta queries', if you have more than 1 custom field that need to search through.
