    It depend on what is the meta value type you have stored. If it is an serialized (array) data, then it will not work with this plugin.

    Thanks for answer...
    What do you mean with serialized data? an "checklist" or "ratio button" for example?

    @pepcru, you can easily make your own search (together with filtering the results) with using Views plugin. Views plugin was created by the same people as Types plugin so both plugins cooperate nice together.

    @pepcru,yes, checkboxes will generate serialize data. Basically any meta field that can store more than one value, most probably will be serialized and store in the database. Serialized data is not an ideal way to perform a search query.
