    I would like a detailed explanation or a link to an explanation on how to get the WordPress search to include the photo descriptions and name in the search.

    The site is on maintenance mode, it is http://www.laredorentacar.com I will turn off maintenance mode for the remainder of the day. It seems to be conflicting with Grunion contact form that I have in a widget. I think the error that is coming back is from the contact form, after doing the search, it returns the contact page with the form error, it appears to be trying to submit the form and not doing the search.

    I did some enhancements. Now you can have a combined view of the 'normal' wp search results and the wppa+ search results.

    I wrote an article on how to... (the detailed description you asked for initially). Please read this topic on the Docs and Demos site.

    We were looking at the article but it requires a search.php file and the theme we are currently using "Headway Themes 2.0.13" doesn't seem to have a search.php fie. Any other suggestions?

    The link is in one of the previous posts, http://www.laredorentacar.com but it is in maintenance mode.

    The theme is a premium theme that I wouldn't be able to zip for you. :(

    If the theme behaves as it should do according to the wp specs on this topic, you can make a copy of your themes index.php and name it search.php and do the mods on that file. That should work.

    See this page from wp docs about template hierarchy.

    I don't want to hijack this thread, but would you be able to help me with mine? The search.php has different codes in it then what shows on the link you posted with directions
