Support » Plugin: Participants Database » Combine String Form Element Searchable?

  • Hi Roland.

    Could you tell me if the Combine String Form Element is searchable in the [pdb_list] shortcode?

    I am getting a no results return when using a Combine String Form Element as a search field. [pdb_list search=true search_fields=fullname].

    If I search for one element of the Combined String, there are no problems in returning either result of the search [pdb_list search=true search_fields=firstname] or [pdb_list search=true search_fields=lastname].

    Is it possible to use the Combine String Form Element to search?

    String Combine fields are saved to the database and are searchable/filterable.

    As always, when attempting to understand the search or filtering on the list shortcode, it’s a good idea to turn plugin debugging on, clear the log, then test your list. The log will contain the query used.

    Next, you need to look at your database directly (using phpMyAdmin) to see what is stored there. Between these two, you can understand why you’re getting the results you are getting.
