    That'll require a lot of custom code on your part.

    You'll need to build the HTML for the search form, and use WP_Query (see below) to handle the submitted form values.

    There's a pretty good tutorial about creating a front-end search for custom fields here:


    Maybe that will be of help to you?

    *Aah it may be a bit out of date as it's a couple of years old, someone in the comments says this, maybe that would be helpful instead:

    you shouldn’t be using query_posts.
    Here is a better method that uses the pre_get_posts filter:
    since WordPress 3.1 you can use the meta_query parameter to search by custom field values.
