    Hello,

    Great plugin you have developed.

    The search bar works great and displays the results perfectly.
    However, nothing is showing on the search results page.
    I have special coding in the search.php template to show results but still nothing.
    The title shows but no results.

    Is there any special I need to do in the template to get it to display the results?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    this plugin doesn’t change the search.php file in any way, it is limited only to the search box

    I was having a similar issue, turns out when I put the following code in the top section of my search.php file I started getting better results (my custom post type slug is ‘attorney’, change to best suite your needs). Hopefully this snippet will help!

    global $query_string;
    
    $query_args = explode("&", $query_string);
    $search_query = array( 'post_type' => array( 'post', 'page', 'attorney' ) );
    
    foreach($query_args as $key => $string) {
    	$query_split = explode("=", $string);
    	$search_query[$query_split[0]] = urldecode($query_split[1]);
    } // foreach
    
    $search = new WP_Query($search_query . '&');

    Dear rodne,

    there is no need to edit or change your search.php default query, wordpress already searches custom post types, however when u create a custom post type there are 2 fields that should be set for wordpress to search this custom type

    public and exclude_from_search, those are set when u create the custom post type that you want.

    read more about it here

    cheers
