[Resolved] Custom Post Type Taxonomies Missing from Search

  • I have a custom post type dog. It has a few taxonomies: breed, color, gender. I can search for the dogs by name in the WordPress search but when I try to searching by any of the taxonomies I get no results.

    How can I solve this?

    Pure speculation: the default search function queries only the posts table, not taxonomies.

    I’m sure there are plugins that extend the search functionality to include taxonomies. It’s possible to code your own, but it can be a bit involved.

    Thanks. I installed Search Everything and enabled custom meta data to be searched. Works perfectly.
