Support » Plugin: Category to Pages WUD » Search not working in admin page

  • Resolved pmg


    Since we updated CAT to PAGES WUD, the search function in the admin area stopped working. It returns no pages or posts…
    In the URL parameter, when we do a search (for Portugal in this example) is:


    The “categories” is what’s causing the issue. If we remove “categories&” from the URL, the search starts working

    If we have the TAGS activated in CP WUD the URL is


    Again, the missing values in “categories” and “tags” are causing the conflict.

    If we disable the whole plugin, the search starts to work…

    Is there any solution?


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I don’t know what was the previous version, but we update the plugins regulary.

    Could it be because of the fact that we have the WordPress in Portuguese language?
    The theme we are using is Townpress but in the frontoffice, the seacrh works well, so it is not a matter of te theme.
    The WordPress version is 4.9.7 (it was automatyicly updated a few days ago)

    Is the WordPress search works well with you, the only diference that I see is the language… could this be the problem?

    If we put this in the URL (without categories and tags) and hits Enter, it works well:

    Thank you very much

    I have set my test site in Dutch and could search without a problem.
    I suppose that another plugin is disturbing the search on your admin panel.
    The &categories&tags is there because the page categories and tags are enabled as unique.
    So it’s a normal behavior that wordpress includes this when you search in the admin.

    Can you disable one by one your other plugins and see or the search works again?
    Or (if not too much in quantity) can you give me a list of the installed plugins?
