Support » Plugin: ACF: Better Search » Doesn’t work for multiple custom fields

    Hello, the plugin doesn’t work when searching for words from multiple custom fields.

    I have custom fields:
    1) brand
    2) model
    3) year

    …but when I search for “brand model year”, no results show up.

    Also when I search for “post-title year”, no results show up either…

    Hi @narubi,

    Thank you for your message.

    The plugin needs to find a search value in one of the fields. From what I understand your value is in three fields. This is not possible.

    Is there a way to at least search both the post title and ACF at the same time?

    Let’s say my post title is “BMW G310R” and a custom field “2019”, I would like to see results for a search term “BMW G310R 2019”. Thanks.

    Sorry @narubi, it is not possible.

    No worries, I have created a custom taxonomy “years” and started using WP Extended Search instead.
