I created a custom search results template and placed the shortcode on it. I also placed the if(wp_verify_nonce($_GET['s'], 'awqsfsearch') ) etc on default search page as necessary. All Settings configured as desired but searches doesn't return posts searched for. Search Options are artist 1 and artist 2. but when searched for posts containing meta key artist 1 via a dropdown, all posts are still showing. thank you.
