Hi it looks like it’s not working with my ACF Pro Fields. I have many fields for one custom post type. I tried it with one True/False custom field. But i get the same results for true and for false search. Any Idea how i can debug it for you?

I sent you an e-mail. Hope you can find and fix the problem.

This plugin does not work for WooCommerce Orders. I am not able to create a custom search box based on WooCommerce Orders and its Advanced Custom Fields. Is this possible with this plugin? If not, please give me a refund because its useless for me otherwise. I purchased it thinking it works with WooCommerce & ACF.

Hi,

It looks great. I just begin to use it and it’s simple.

I’ve questions : We can just use checkbox or select field ? We can’t use slider range for example ? We can’t have an ajax research in front office ? we must use an archive page ?

Thanks :-)

Hello WaouhCool,

I’m not sure about what you want to do exactly, if you want to hide a search field based on the selection of another search field, you can do that with javascript and the onChange event. On the other hand, you cannot hide a field option (i.e. a choice in a Select) or field according to a remote search that doesn’t provide results for a specific filter selection.

I hope that this answers your question.

Thank you for you quick answer. We will think about it with the dev.

I just need one more precision about my first question : How is it possible to make the archive.php works in ajax ? If the theme don’t make it by himself.

The easiest way is to send the Search From with an Ajax request made by jQuery, read its response and replace the proper part of your page DOM with the new HTML retrieved from the ajax response.

Something like this:

<script type=”text/javascript”>

jQuery(’.widget.acs-search-form form’).submit(function (evt) {

var $form = jQuery(this), data = $form.serialize();
jQuery.post($form.attr('action'), data, function (response, status, request) {
    var $response = jQuery(response);
    jQuery('#your-archive-results-container-id').html($response.find('#your-archive-results-container-id').html());
}, 'html');
evt.preventDefault();
return false;

});

</script>

This is only an example and you have to adapt it to your theme structure.

Hi, I just wondered if there were any results ‘preview’ options for this plugins (like an AJAX preview that appears when typing a query)? Thanks in advance.

Hello, sorry but there’s no live search preview.

(wrong reply)

Pre-purchase questions: - Is there official support for WP 4.8+? It’s not listed in the sidebar. - I am looking to create a search which essentially shows all posts in which an ACF field begins with a specific character. So if someone searches for “45678”, it should match all posts where a specific ACF field begins with “4”.

Will this be possible?

Yes, the plugin is compatible with the latest version of WordPress, but it cannot work as you need: you cannot search for fields beginning with a specific character.

Hello! cannot navigate to settings. Call to undefined function boolval()

not seen any acf fields available

It seems that you are using PHP < 5.5 (boolval has been introduced in PHP 5.5).

ACS requires at least PHP 5.6: older versions are deprecated and may expose your site to security vulnerabilities. WordPress itself recommends PHP version 7 or greater: https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/

My website is pretty much ready. Is there any older version that I can use under php 5.5 ?

I’m sorry to inform you that the plugin is compatible with PHP 5.6+ and no earlier versions of PHP are compatible.

Hi,

Does your plugin run on php7.x?

Thanks

Hi,

I just purchased your plugin. I want to used a custom field that I am using in certain posts – it’s a simple country dropdown. I want users to be able to search for posts by country.

However, my custom field is not showing as drag and drop

https://screencast.com/t/uIYp5XrVLsz6

How can I fix this?

Thanks

Hi philthebass,

could you send us an email at staff@var-dump.it with credential for a WordPress user for your site, so that we can investigate the problem?

Thank you.

Hi!

I’d like to know whether this plugin is right for me. I am starting to integrate advanced custom fields in my blog’s wine review section as a way to create an advanced search function box (which will either be in a sidebar widget or in a sticky post).

You can see the relevant category at http://joeraisin.com/category/critiques/

Ideally, I would like to create search options for the following advanced custom fields in dropdown menus, radio buttons, etc which I would then customize via CSS:

- color (text field) - price (text field – would love to use it as a “range” if this can be done?) - country of origin (text field) - availability (text field) - vintage year (text field) - star rating (text field)

These are all configured in ACP and restricted to the right category (ie. “critiques”). Will Advanced Search Pro allow me to search specific fields for each ACP created text field?

Please let me know. If so, I’ll be very happy to buy the plugin.

Cheers, -JR

Hi joeraisin,

everything you ask should be possible with Advanced Custom Search PRO if you are using ACF fields.

Some of the fields you added would be better suited as a different type rather than text (price for example should be a number) since we have different search options for different types of fields, you can check out https://www.advancedcustomsearch.com/docs/#customizing_form_field for more info on the different search options and http://plugins.var-dump.it/ for a working example.

I bought this plugin only to find it won’t work because my theme doesn’t specifically use an archive.php page. I was under the impression that it would work with any taxonomy archive…

My goal was to place the advanced custom search shortcode onto my taxonomy.php and use it to filter specific taxonomies in my database…

Is this even possible?

You only need to copy one file, because your theme doesn’t have one of the essential wordpress theme files.

Hi,

We’re getting the following error when in debug mode.

Warning: Parameter 2 to AdvancedCustomSearchPro::postsWhere() expected to be a reference, value given in /home/walero/public_html/dev/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php on line 298

What can we do to resolve?

Thanks

Hi philthebass,

do you have WP_DEBUG set to active?

You shouldn’t see warnings, anyway we’ll verify if the plugin is causing it and update it if that’s the case.

Hi, Yes we do have WP_DEBUG while we test. Something is slowing the site down. These are the only errors we’re seeing so this could be the cause. Regards Phil

It doesn’t look like that kind of warning should slow down the site, we’ll still test the plugin and see what’s causing the warning.

Great product with nice clear filter form. However, My work flow is slightly different than usual and I’m not quite getting it working. What I am trying to do is to select a taxonomy through a wordpress menu and then filter the results further through the advanced search. So I should somehow either refer to the current page (differs based on the taxonomy) as the bases for the search or add the current taxonomy as a filter by default in the background. Is this possible?

HI ihonhoff,

it’s not possible to do right now, but we’ll update the plugin to add that functionality and it should be up in the next few days

HI ihonhoff,

we’ve uploaded a new version of the plugin that should help you with this issue.

Hi,

So I decided to buy the plugin and create my first search form based on the advanced custom fields I entered for my some posts (which are specific to one category on my site) and I am quite disappointed to see that no info is fetched upon search.

Instead, clicking the search button always brings up the “oops, couldn’t find what you were looking for” theme error. Yet, when I leave all the fields blank and run the search, the results are for a category in which no ACF are included?

I am wondering whether this could be due to the fact that I choose not to have my ACF displayed in each article? Indeed, I plan to use them as categorization tool only and have no desire for them to “appear” in each article.

For reference, my site’s domain is joeraisin.com/en/ and the category in which I am using ACF is “Tasting Notes”. I plan to have the search box posted in the category description area.

Please let me know how to troubleshoot this, as I am aware I might not have provided enough information for you to find a solution straight away. I am also not against granting you admin access for a while if you need it.

Thank you, -JR

Hi,

you should be able to update the plugin through WordPress, if it doesn’t prompt for an update you can download the full plugin and overwrite the files using an FTP client.

Hi, we are a few days later and it still has not showed up in Wordpress update. Can you describe how to overwrite the files using an FTP? Thanks.

Hi,

you just need to extract the zip and upload plugin files in the plugin folder (/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-search-pro), overwriting any existing file.

Thank you

Hi,

Is it possible to set up contextual search filters. For example, we have 2 custom ACF fields for Country and State.

I want the State dropdown in my search from to be contextual. For example:

If Country selected is USA, display all US States in the State drop down or If Country selected is UK, all UK States in the State drop down etc.

Thanks

Phil

Hi philthebass,

ACF doesn’t have that kind of field and so Advanced Custom Search PRO doesn’t support anything like that; you could probably get what you need using javascript.
