Support » Plugin: WP Extended Search » Nice plugin [and works with Crocoblock’s]

  • Excellent work with this plugin! Light, fast and highly customizable.

    The version 2.0.1 of WPES it’s compatible with Crocoblock’s JetEngine [2.6.2] custom post metafields, and the live ajax refresh of Listing Grids through the Search Filter widget from JetSmartFilters [2.1.0], that uses the native WordPress search option — All of that after a very little tweak on the “class-wpes-admin” document on this plugin!

    All my custom fields from JetEngine starts with a “_”:
    _ubicacion (_location),
    _nombre-autor-a (_author-name),
    _contenidos (_contents),
    etc. (7 more).

    So, when the document “class-wpes-admin” from WPES says:

    $wp_es_fields = $wpdb->get_results( apply_filters( ‘wpes_meta_keys_query’, “select DISTINCT meta_key from $wpdb->postmeta where meta_key NOT LIKE ‘\_%’ ORDER BY meta_key ASC” ) );

    I just changed 1 character: “where meta_key NOT LIKE ‘\%'” [erased underscore].

    It listed all the custom fields that I was looking for. On the downside, it also threw me a bunch of results (between 30-40 new checkboxes) that are present in the WordPress database (wp_postmeta). I had to select the corresponding fields using Ctrl + F for a faster search.

    After testing with others plugins, this was the only search plugin that let me accomplish the custom meta field ajax live filtering directly on the Listing Grids from JetEngine (and not only on Archives), without being overriden by the JetSmartFilters plugin (that forces a search only on titles if you select the “native wordpress search” option; if you select “by custom field”, it only allows you to enter one meta key; no more than that).

    Sorry for the extension of this review. I didn’t post this on support, because… There’s no problem with your plugin. It’s great! 😀
