A good solution for non-code savvy WP users to create advanced search forms.

It just works!!

Great plugin, it does exactly what it says, easily and efficiently.

I didnt have to tweak and tinker to achieve anything, you shortcode parameters and hooks were in place for me to achieve everything I needed to. Thanks.

Great plugin. Please just keep up maintaining it for all future releases - always my biggest concern :-)

Multiple Issues
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was using the previous version of this plugin "Advanced WP Query Search".

The first issue is that there was no notification that this plugin was no longer being supported, and the only way I found out was by going to the plugin location...where I discovered the discontinued support and referral to this plugin. All I can say, it's not hard to push out an update with a message regarding discontinuance of support and the move to "Ultimate WP....".

Second, there is no way to save the settings. You got to start all over with the new plugin, from scratch.

Third, had a lot of server timeout issues when setting up the new searches.

Fourth, it gets bogged down and if you have more than 20 taxonomies in a search form, it will only record the additional taxonomies past 20, ONE at a time.

Fifth, it is not playing nicely with my dedicated server, and really slows things down.

Sixth...and this is the death issue, the searches are not accurate. I choose a taxonomy for "Antique Malls" and get stuff from 6-7 other taxonomies. This is with it set at "OR". It
s a bit better if I add some "A'ND" meta fields...but this should not be necessary.

All in all, I wasted two days on this puppy before deleting.

It... works... but can't figure it how or make work the way I want...
By , for WP 3.9.1

Basically what I was looking for was some better search and filtering option for woocommerce store.

There are many problems with using this plugin:

1. It's complicated and not easy for people who are not programming savvy (on a higher level then just pure logic, where you can figure it out some stuff on your own or with small help of google). For example:
First options, if you want to turn on ajax search is:

Div to display result : [field to type the code] For Ajax only
The Div id/class of where you want the result to display. eg. #content, .content (Must have the '#' or '.' in front of the div name!)

Maybe many of you understand it but for me it's like: WTF? I put #content because this was the only thing presented to me but it resulted with very ugly view, so I must turn it down. What are other possibilities here? No idea. The most frustrating part is: I even don't know what to look for and if I don't know that, it's like a big stop. Nothing to do.

I experimented with settings and was able to create taxonomy button or drop down choice but that I can have with built in woocommerce widget and it would look better.
I wasn't able to get meta fields to work, all I got was some form but without choice.

Basically I didn't understand any of the what I was doing. I don't know php so options descriptions were completely gibberish for me.

2. Plugin is for English language only. One must translate it manually to adjust it for own language. That's a big limitation. Most plugins need to change few words in a code, this one, because of its complication, needs more.

3. String search didn't work for woocommerce products.

4. The graphical form of the search form, buttons is... ugly. Just very basic stuff with no graphical touch or adjustment.Search button is... so early 90s... ;P. Not my style...

Overall, if I knew/understand how to set it right, it could give me a few more options then woocommerce navi filters but not more and yet look and language adaptation is much worse.

This isn't plugin for all. It doesn't do for me :(.
