Advanced Post Search

Description

Get the PRO version: https://www.advancedcustomsearch.com/

Advanced Post Search is a WordPress plugin for anyone who needs an advanced search for posts (or custom posts) in WordPress admin.
Easily find posts by performing complex queries directly from the posts list and using specific filters for each field. It works with any post type and custom post type.

Advanced Post Search lets you search posts by any post attribute; search by:

  • Post Title
  • Post Content
  • Post Publish (date or date interval)
  • Post Last Modified (date or date interval)
  • Post Status
  • Post Password
  • Post Author
  • Post Excerpt
  • Post Slug

Specify which comparison operator you want to use; each field has its own comparison operators, according to the field type: for example, in text fields you can perform a strict or a like search.

You can manage search preferences from Advanced Post Search » Views in order to show/hide any search field for each post type.

Reviews

Usefull tool to find malwares and code injections inside posts

Hi, this tool is excelent and save my life!

My client´s website was infected with a lot of SQL post injections that points to sex and viagra´s dealers. Even Sucuri and Wordfence plugins and other online tools didn´t find any malware.

With this simple tool, I could find HREFs and “POSITION: Absolute” tags, words, filter by dates, etc.

Even with few users, this author deserves 5-stars for this small, unknown, but EXCELENT tool.

Works great!

This admin plugin allows to search posts by authors and others advanced criteria. Works as advertized.

A great time saver. Worked like a charm.

Faced with having to categorize thousands of WooCommerce products based on text in the product name, but that same text was present in the product description. The core admin search would return all results, all the time. This plugin allowed us to filter only on the product name field. That made fast easy work of the task!
