    I’ve put out a minor update today, this fixes a few small bugs and pulls in a few bits of code that I’ve written for bespoke projects.

    I’m hoping to do a bigger rewrite soon, when this happens I will be moving to some kind of paid for model, possibly a free version and a premium version. I am hoping this will fund the time I need to push forward with development and to support the project, so there should be a lot more upgrades / fixes on the way.

    I wouldn’t mind if you turn the plugin in a paid version. I just discovered this plugin and I am struggling to get it to work with custom fields in custom post types. I find it strange that there is no good solution for this. It seems to me that this type of drill-down search is pretty common, like in real estate, ecommerce etc. Surely there must be a demand for this.

    Anyway, I hope you will be successfull in overhauling and monetizing your plugin.

    Are you sure it still works with the latest WP version 3.5.1?
    I could not get it to work. I did a fresh install to test. No other plugins, just one post with a custom field and two tags.
    The plugin returns no results at all.

    @eagerbob, it’s definitely working on my test install of WordPress 3.5.1 .

    On your site the search does return one result if you don’t type anything into the fields so I can only assume that the fields aren’t matching up to the db correctly?

    If the “tag” field represents a wordpress tag then the correct widget config would be:

    Data Type=Tag

    then I would usually use:

    Compare=Equals
    Widget=DropDown

    although you could use:

    Compare=Words In (or Phrase In)
    Widget=Text Input
