WP Ultimate Search

Powerful AJAX-based search alternative which supports faceting queries by taxonomies, terms, location, and post metadata.

How do I customize the search results template?

When a search is executed, the plugin first looks in your current theme directory for the file wpus-results-template.php. If no file is found, it falls back to the default results template, located in /wp-ultimate-search/views/wpus-results-template.php.

To customize the template, first copy the wpus-results-template.php file into your theme directory. The code within this file is a standard WordPress loop, which you can modify in any way you choose. To learn more about WordPress loops, see the codex.

How do I stop my the viewport from zooming in when a user touches the search box on a mobile device?

If you have a mobile website and you want to disable autozooming on input fields (like the search bar), add the following code to your header.php file:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0" />

I've added a post with some meta fields I'd like to make searchable, but they're not showing up under Post Meta Settings

Since WordPress uses post meta fields to track a lot of things you probably don't care to know about, we've added a filter to WPUS to only show a meta field as an option if it occurs more than three times. If you've recently added a meta field to a post, try adding that meta field to two more posts and you should see it appear as an option under Post Meta Settings.
