    Hi Don,

    Please accept my apology for my ignorance on this matter – I’m a blogger and not a programmer, so don’t really understand the terminology to pose my question correctly.

    The WP blog I run has two parts – the regular blog post section and a custom-made database table which is in the same database as the blog posts. What I’d like to do is be able to provide readers with a search that can find results in both tables and present them in the same results.

    Is your plugin able to span both tables and pull the results together?

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

    Hi Jeremy,

    The plugin can handle joined tables if records in your custom table relate to records in the wp_post table? Although this would require some custom coding to match your table. If the records are unrelated to the wp_post table though then that’s going beyond what the plugin has been designed for and it would be quite a big job to get them in.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Hi Don, thanks for your reply and apologies for taking so long to get back to you.

    My custom table is largely unrelated to the wp_posts table, unfortunately.

    Can I contact you privately to discuss?
