Is it possible to filter by rating and filter a category?. Thanks.
The current version doesn’t include your required functionality.
Hi! How can i try demo?
you can buy LS&CF to try it. If it doesn’t fit your requirements, then you can ask for a refund in 15 days after purchase.
I’m sure you’ll like it.

we’ll come with an update next days, but will be great if you can contact us at email@example.com
Hi Live Search Author.
Debating a purchase here. My question is whether or not more than one search can be created. I have a number of custom post types e.g News / Documents / Videos / Literature – its kind of a knowledge hub. I would ideally prefer to seperate out the search into thier respective areas. Is this possible?
Yeah, you can create multiple searches based on your custom post types. You can try it and in case if it doesn’t fit your needs, you can ask a refund within 15 days.
Could i do a post search within categories (ie: car brand) and subcategories (ie: car model) as in this example: https://usatios.com/ with your plugin?
Yeah, you can create a search filter based on your categories and subcategories.
regular wordpress posts or just woocommerce products?
it works with any custom post type from your theme or you can create a new one using our plugin. Also, it’s compatible with WooCommerce products too.
Let me know if I can help with anything else.
So, no regular WordPress Posts? My theme comes with template for posts which are not available for custom ones so i need to use the regular posts from WP
Well, it’s designed only for custom posts… We’ll include the regular posts in next update. In case if you decide to buy it, we can make this quick update for you and send it via email. Feel free to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am getting 2 errors when trying to activate this plugin. Can you please help?

The plugin is displaying the following error when I click on enable …

What should I do? I need urgent help!
Please send us an email as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is it possible to include the number of results next to the option to check? 3 bedroom (11), Pool (2), etc.
thanks for checking our plugin. Unfortunately, LSCF don’t have this functionality implemented. We’ll take it into consideration and we’ll include it in upcoming updates.
I am registering the posts, but when I click on them, I enjoy a message saying that there is nothing on the page. What do I do?
Please try to reset the permalinks, that should fix your issue. Also make sure that your theme supports a single post template. If resetting the permalinks doesn’t help, please send an email with the link page at email@example.com
This plugin works with Woocommerce Bookings for resources and date availability?
Thanks in advance
we didn’t tested yet how LSCF plugin works with WooCommerce Bookings extension. I recommend you to try it, and if it’s not compatible with this extension, you can ask for a refund in 15 days.
First off great plugin really simple to use and very thorough. One thing I have noticed though is that this plugin doesn’t seem to work with Visual Composer… when VC is active any information I put into LS & CF is not saved.
Any reason why this would be? and will you consider making this a fix in the next revision given how widely used VC is?
thanks for choosing LS & CF.
Can you please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with version of VC you’re using and which theme?
Thanks for the quick reply John, just sent the email
We’re excited to announce that LSCF is running GREAT and UPDATE is now available!
VERSION 1.1.3 (30/01/2017)
it is very bad in customizaibilty and no sidebar support I need a refund… Cannot customize anything.
we’re sorry that your experience with LSCF it’s not as you expected. What do you mean by bad customizability? What you want to customize and can’t? Maybe we can find a solution.
Thanks for prompt reply. I’m using Flatsome theme from theme forest. Your plugin not compatible with theirs. I love your filter and custom fields feature. Is it possible we make it to have the filters in a sidebar of the theme, and the results are just as normal products post in the product category page ? Instead of having shortcode to be used in a page to display both the sidebar and the results? I’m using it for woocommerce by the way forgot to mention. And I am looking for simple design, no need fancy stuffs.
Hi Suhail S,
as we discussed in private, will be fair to write here some details for those users that read comments.
Functionality you need is to have 2 shortcodes: 1st for displaying filter in sidebar and 2nd to display posts/results in page. Currently LSCF generates 1 shortcode for both. We’re planning to implement “2 shortcodes” functionality in next updates, but until then we’ll approve your request. Thanks for trying LSCF.
Have an awesome weekend!
Hello! I’ve purchased your plugin yesterday and I’m a bit lost. Would you mind answering a couple of questions for me?
1) I was hoping I could use your plugin to create a live search for the posts that I had created using my theme builder (BeTheme). They are regular blog posts – with featured images, and so on. Is it possible? If so, how do I make that happen? I could also use portfolio items/pages instead of the posts, if that would help.
2) Is there a way to use the (featured) images presented in the plugin page as links to different pages other than your regular custom post type? This way, I could create posts with your plugin and use them as links only.
I’m a noob. I can mess around with some coding, but I very little knowledge in that area. I know that if I could use my theme’s visual builder to create the pages to use with your plugin, that would solve all my problems, but everything that I’ve read so far leads me to believe that’s not possible.
My website is under construction, but I wouldn’t mind sharing login/psw, if you think that would help. I appreciate your time and I’ll be looking forward to your reply.
Thank you very much!
you can create a custom live search using any custom post type or default WordPress “post”. Go to “Custom Filter” tab/section and then select your post type, categories or custom fields(to filter by), and then generate a shortcode that should be inserted into your page.
About second question, the plugin will use the default post/custom post link. it doesn’t allow to add a custom link to each post. You can use a plugin to generate custom links for your post..
Please contact us at email@example.com. We’ll help you to generate the live search for your posts.
Okay. I have three things to say after reading your reply:
1) That sounds like something that’s probably included in the documentation and I apologize for not reading all of it before coming to you (even though I’m really happy I did);
2) I am v-e-r-y grateful for your help! I think I can take it from there. That was exactly what I needed and my life will never be the same.
3) Your plugin is awesome, I love it and I hope you get rich really soon!
Thank you for nice words!

I’m using a custom filter for my portfolio items on one of my pages (your plugin is working like a charm, by the way) and I’ve run into a few questions about the layout:
1) I have an item entitled “Hotel Costa Norte Ponta das Canas”, and the plugin shows only “Hotel Costa Norte Ponta das…”, even though there’s plenty of space for the rest of the characters to show. Also, when I try to search this item, it will show me the result “Hotel Costa Norte Ponta das&Hellip;”. Is there any way to fix this?
2) On ‘grid view’ mode, is there a way to hide the title of the page/item that is being searched entirely, so that it shows only the featured image of those pages/items? If not, is there any way to customize that text – like alignment or color?
3) The label that I typed for the custom filter’s search bar is not showing at all. It just shows a bar, with nothing written on it or above it. I’m not sure I did something wrong, but the label thing seemed really straight forward on the custom filter settings page. Do you know of anything that might help?
(My website is under construction, but I’d be happy to share the login information privately in case you’d like to have a look.)
Thank you for your time once again!
Please copy this message and send us an email email@example.com. Also we’ll need the page link there you’re having those issues.
Hello _Liviu! Thank you for all the help so far.
When you first load a page with a custom filter on it, it will show all of the categories items from the post type that’s been chosen for that filter – including the ones you did not choose to include in the filter at all. So, is there any way to hide those “unsolicited” categories from showing in this initial load?
Thank you once again.
I wonder if you are looking for a functionality to display the posts as default from selected categories? Or you meant to display the specific/selected categories into filter sidebar? If you are looking for 1st functionality, I believe that I can provide it tomorrow by EOD.. About second functionality, it seems to be working fine with version that you have installed..
Let me know if I can help with anything else!
I was looking for the 1st functionality (I guess) – so that the only items that were displayed by default, when I initially loaded the page, were the ones from the categories I had chosen to include in the custom filter for that page.
For instance: I was using a custom filter to display my ‘Portfolio’ (custom type) items, and I had 5 different portfolio categories under that. The thing is I only wanted to show items from 3 of them in a specific page, and when I initially loaded that page, it would show me all of the items from all of the 5 categories from ‘Portfolio’ by default, even though I chose to include only 3 categories in the custom filter for that page.
*LOL! I’m confused by my own explanation! But I’m hoping you got it.
Nevertheless, I have found a different (harder, but possibly better) solution: I created a new custom post type and had a different custom filter load the items from that. I still believe your plugin would benefit from having an option to hide some categories from the default display, though.
Thank you very much for your time and attention once again. I’m really enjoying using the plugin!
Yep, I got it. It’s about first functionality that I mentioned. I will provide this update tomorrow by EOD. I will notice you via an email
Thanks for your feedback and suggestions!
Talk to you via email!
I’ll be looking forward to it! Thank you!
I am looking to use this for posts, so people can search and filter the posts. Does this also offer sort, if they wanted to sort by date, or title?
You can use any post or custom post type to create the filter. Current version doesn’t offer the sort functionality. It will be included in next upcoming update.
