Support » Plugin: Search & Filter » Works OK, but documentation, support lacking

  • This plugin seems to have some good potential, and it works fairly well if you want to filter the usual WordPress post types without getting fancy with it.

    That’s not to say that it does everything that it says it does. Not intuitively, at least.

    The plugin works off a shortcode where you list the fields and options for each field. In my case, I needed a filter that could work from custom field names. According to the description here at WordPress, filtering custom fields are possible – but it is not obvious what you need to put into the shortcode to get it to do so.

    Unfortunately, the documentation (whether on the online version or in the copy-and-pasted version that they’ve baked right into the WP admin panel) does not cover anything regarding the plugin’s use of custom field names.

    Additionally, in my testing, not once did AJAX appear to kick in. Submit button had to be used each time, and it’d reload the page.

    Maybe it works for some developers, but this plugin wasn’t what I read on the tin. Approach accordingly.

    P.S.: For anyone who wishes to criticize me for leaving a three star review before reaching out to the developers, that’s another thing: Have you seen how many posts in the Support thread have been ignored? Why should I waste my time for an obvious result?
