I just realized, that the WP search of my Admiral Child Theme is pretty useless.
It finds little, and the results (of static pages) are no clickable links.
I use WP primarily as a CSS and try to make/code as much as my possibilities will allow on my own …
So I mainly use pages instead of posts and some of them are custom-post-type pages. Some of them consist only of metabox custom fields.
No matter, what I’ve tried, the search results I get do not meet my needs. The biggest pain is, that, even if I use plugins like Relevanssi or curry-search, the post results of static pages just show a part(excerpt) of the found entries, but WON’T LINK to the pages, where the entries were fond. That is pretty USELESS.
The next pain is, that the search doesn’t find terms in the metabox custom fields in the custom post type pages …
I have another site running, using Weaver Extreme Theme, and the search there finds static pages, shows them with thumbs and they are formatted as clickable links.
So what can I do, to force my search to find entries in:
Custom post type (static)pages
(Metabox) Custom fields content
Custom post type pages
(Categories, Tags ? )
AND, and that’s important: display them ALL as clickable links to the pages, the found entries come from ….
I hope my English is good enough, to make clear, what I mean.
Tnx in advance
