    Hello, awesome plugin and does exactly what is promised !!!

    I'd like to know if and how it's possible to edit DavesWordPressLiveSearchResults.php to be able to retrieve images from a custom meta field for example "Logo" instead loading the first post image

    Thanks in advance...

    Version 3.0 introduced some hooks for manipulating the results. You can use the dwls_attachment_thumbnail filter to change what's put in the thumbnail field. Off the top of my head, I think you just need to return the URL of an image you want to use.

    Hi Dave, I like this plugin very much and I am trying to make it work thumbnails this filter adding something like this in function.php (on the end of file)

    add_filter('dwls_attachment_thumbnail', 'dwls_test_attachment_thumbnail');
    function dwls_test_attachment_thumbnail($foo) {
       get_the_post_thumbnail ($id, 'thumbnail', array('class' => 'photo main_photo'));
       echo get_the_post_thumbnail();

    This is not working , so can you please give me advice about this ?

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. A filter needs to return the modified content. So in your case:

    $foo = get_the_post_thumbnail();
    return $foo;
