Hi! Before purchasing this plugin I would love to know if it’s possible to use tags as value in the “select” fields? “select — used in fields that have a specific set of values (i.e. post status, taxonomies, etc.).” Best regards! M.

Hello Micha_Meedom,

in Wordpress tags are just taxonomies with a non-hierarchical structure; you can show a Tag filter with checkboxes or with a <select> depending on what type of search you want.

Hi! Ibought your plugin, and it works great in the begining but now, i got a BIG issue.

The problem is the following:

I using the search engine to a real state site. I create some critera to the search plugin. For example, one with tags, to identify characteristics of the propertys, one with categories to find the location, another also with categories to search the type of transaction (rent, Sale) exclude some of mayor categories an its subordinated and in each case and works great.

I get paid for my work and finish, but now my client call me and said that the some search “boxes” or weathever you call it, are duplicated. For example the section “Type of property” replicates itself a number of times, and when i enter to edit the form erase them and update the form new sections are created, and dont end there if i click update again it generates new and new and new sections to the form.

I think it´s very weird when my client call and i think “there may be a mistake”, but its in facts the things that happen. Its like a bug in the plugin? or you can give me an answer or solution to this issue?

Its very important to solve this :(


Hello, it seems very strange and it could not depend on ACS: if it worked well for a while and then the problem appeared, maybe your client performed some “actions” (updates, changes in settings, etc) and messed up with ACS or WordPress itself.

Can you give us the url of the site and (if you want) an admin user to login and check backend settings?

Thank you

I bought your plugin and nothing shows up under search forms, admin views and settings. Please let me know what’s happening.

Hello. What do you mean with “nothing shows up”? Entire blank page? Empty WordPress admin page? Can you give us other details (maybe with screenshots)?

Did you get some errors during the installation of ACS?

Thank you

I’ve a problem with a relational field, this field link a post type to an user(wordpress user)

when i search for a post linked to a specific user, acs doesn’t find anything, Instead when i search for any other field all works well.

how can I solve this problem?

Hello sgrunfo, we’ll do some tests and get back to you as soon as possible.

We’ve made some tests and we haven’t found any problem, you can try the sample page and filter by owner to see a working example.

It could be a configuration problem on your site, if you need further help please give us more details on the problem.

Could i do a post search within categories (ie: car brand) and subcategories (ie: car model) as in this example: with your plugin?

Hello mertxe,

the plugin can show a single field, either select or input, that can search within all categories, there is no way to have two separate fields like in the example site.


We’re getting the following error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function AdvancedCustomSearchPro\ACF\acf_get_field_groups() in /nas/content/staging/sitename/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-search-pro/core/acf/fieldgroup.php on line 121

Hosted on WPEngine – Any ideas?
