    Hi Mateusz Gbiorczyk!

    Could you show me what I need to do after installation? I’m not a wordpress developer but from the other topics I’ve been reading this plugin only works on the backend and I need to add some kind of code? Should I also expect the default wordpress search engine to get the acf data?

    Thanks for helping me out! I know you’re doing this out of your own time so I appreciate the support

    Hi @booak55,

    Thank you for your message.

    You already have a search engine on your website. The plugin itself should integrate with it, and that should work.

    Are you using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to edit your content?

    Thanks for the prompt reply @mateuszgbiorczyk !

    I thought it should work hahah but yeah.. it’s not.

    Just some context
    ACF is used as a registration form for our customers but there’s no way for the admin team to pull that the customer’s data or view it. So I was thinking of using the search bar to search for a specific customer and pull up the ACF data that’s related to the customer.

    Hopefully that makes sense!

    @booak55 Please explain your case carefully and add screenshots. This will make it easier for me to understand.

    @mateuszgbiorczyk I’ll try!

    I can’t provide screenshots because nothing has been done other than installing and activating the plugin.

    I want to use the search bar to get the acf data đŸ™‚

    Unfortunately, I still don’t understand what you would like to achieve. The plugin is not responsible for the front-end.

    Do you already have a search bar?

    Same problem here.

    1. Downloaded
    2. Installed
    3. ? what’s next?

    My normal search bar does not search in ACF, after installing ACF: Better Search.

    Thanks for that video.
    Unfortunately this doesn’t tell anything about how to use ACF.
    Is there another video for this? I couldn’t find it.

    @rubenvankempen, if you do not know what it is ACF plugin, this plugin is not for you.

    I’m using ACF already, but I’m looking for the explanation how to connect the ACF-field from products in this plugin. It’s not happening automatically.
