Search by address – Only returns results from post-title
Thanks again for the work you’re putting into the plugin, I’ve been using it for a while now and I’m pleased to see it’s still going strong.
There is an issue I’ve noticed for a while now, I thought about posting it to GitHub but thought maybe I’d raise it here first. I’m not entirely clear whether it’s an issue with just my setup, however I have looked at your demo site and it appears to be the same. The question is, does the ‘Search by Address’ (widget/shortcode) have the ability to geocode the input and return relevant search results from a certain radius. For example:
If you type in ‘Perth’ in ‘Search by Address’ you only get one result. This is despite the fact that many of the listed properties have ‘Perth’ defined in their address. I can see that the search is picking only from the post-title field. Which is why:
…is the only returned result. I can see the plugin is already utilising geocoding via the maps used on the property single templates and on the wp-admin property edit screen. Is there any plan to extend the property search so that it incorporates these fields? An example would be if I searched here in the UK for the postcode YO12, if i search this I’d hope to see properties from a certain radius, maybe even properties from YO13. Currently it only seems to return those that have listed this postcode in the title and only very specifically, this means I more often than not see that no listings are available when that isn’t quite correct.
If this is something you could add to the premium plugin or as a paid extension – as I understand the work involved – I’d be more than happy to purchase it as I do think your plugin is the best in it’s area.
