Support » Plugin: ACF: Better Search » After update to 3.7 search no longer gives search results

  • Resolved hanheg


    I use the plugin to do a specific search on a Custom Post Type with settings
    – supported field types Text and Number
    – search for whole words
    – use incorrect mode

    This works fine in WP 5.6 with ACF: Better Search version 3.6 which running on the site now.
    But as soon as I update to version 3.7 I no longer get any search results.
    I changed some settings to be more generic but that does not help. I no longer get any search results.

    Any idea what I can do to get search results with version 3.7?

    thank you, Han

    Hi @hanheg,

    Thank you for your message.

    Please try turning off search for whole words option. Has it helped?


    Had the same issue – also searching for CPT.
    Turning off “search for whole words” worked.

    Thank you for this,

    Hi Mateusz,

    I just updated again and turned it off. Now I get results again.
    Thank you, that seems to work.
    I have to double check, because earlier we needed that to prevent finding partial numbers. But that seems allright now too.

    thanks a lot your your quick response.

    many greetings, Han

    @mateuszgbiorczyk I can confirm that the update solved the problem. I updated the plugin and turned on the search for whole words option again. And now I do get results.

    thanks a lot!
