Hi, I would like to see demo, but when I click there is a non secure page and impossible to open. Is it possible to see demo? Regards

Other question: is it possible to search on pictures? Photo, pictures are included in search?

Hi,

Sorry the certificate was not renewed automatically. It’s been fixed now.

Please visit https://demo.archtheme.com/searchford/ again for the demo.

Yes it supports searching for attachments (images). It will search in the title field of the image. If you use the live search results with the thumbnail settings, you can see the pictures in the search results.

The appearance of the regular search results (when you are redirected to the search results page) is not affected by this plugin and will default to the template used by your theme. Only the results will be different.

Regards

Hi,

Thank you for your answers. I will visit and test demo :-)

Hi. Pre-sale Q:

Can i put in a pre-defined string before the actual search?

Hi,

If you know a little coding, I can show you which files and approximately where to edit.

Hello, I am looking for a solution to: 1) when importing photos in the WP Media Library, put the keywords in the “Title” WP field 2) allow to make any kind of (front end) search among the photos Thanks

Hi,

The live search function for this plugin supports your requirements.

You can try it out here: https://demo.archtheme.com/searchford/ in the “Masonry Live Search” example.

However, please note that this plugin does not change the appearance of the search results template (the search results page that the user gets redirected to when they click the “search” button). This template is defined by your theme. This plugin will only change the search results on that page.

Hope this helps.

Regards

where do i find the short code?

Hi,

What are your Searchford settings? By default it will only search for results in posts and pages.

If you are using WooCommerce, please to go Dashboard > Settings > Searchford.

Under the General Settings tab > Show Results From The Following Post Types > Select Products and Save.

Hope this helps.

Regards

yes i need categories tags and post types but they just dont search anything, the attribute filters will come up in the shop side bar but know images will show

Hi,

Please provide the following:

1. Dashboard login so I can check your search settings 2. A sample search term keyword and the search results you expect 3. The product page you want to find for the search keyword

You can send the above information to support@archtheme.com

Thanks.

Regards

can i have a refund please this plug in doesnt work for me and i cant find the shorcode

Hi,

You need to create a new search form first before you can get the shortcode.

Regards

can I have a refund please there is no short code and the search features dont work for me

Hi,

Please send an email to support@archtheme.com to discuss.

Could you kindly explain which search features you want, and what doesn’t work? Thank you.

Regards

I hope this finds you well.

We’ve been using your plugin for years and it’s been working amazing up until a little while ago.

Now, I can’t get any search to work. I’ve re-indeded and recreated search fields. Nothing seems to get it working.

I’m getting a database error in the logs that I’m hoping will help get this back working.

WordPress database error Can’t find FULLTEXT index matching the column list for query SELECT table1.object_id, table2.rel FROM wp_searchford AS table1

Hi,

Please use the account your purchased the plugin with to leave this message again, or send your purchase code to support@archtheme.com

Hi, Is SearchFord is not being updated any longer? Also, I tried to use live search, but it does not work and gives an error: Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in …...\wp-content\plugins\searchford\public\searchford-public.php on line 285. Any idea how to fix that? Thanks, Fred

Hi,

Searchford is working with the latest version of WordPress.

Which WordPress version are you using? Are you searching for Pages or Posts or other custom post types?

I’ll try to help with your problem, but since your support is expired, I cannot dedicate time to do in-depth debugging.

If you’ve just changed themes or added new plugins lately, you may also want to deactivate them to see if they are causing problems.

Regards

Hi, thanks for your reply. As for “SearchFord not working”: – it was a Compile and cache all the JavaScript CSS files -which outputted in the footer – that was conflicting with SearchFord – now I just need to figure out how to complile – so SearchFord would still work -.(since compile js and css is important for speed).. As for the “Warning: count(): Parameter…” issue was that – in SearchFord settings No custom Taxanomy is selected -since not used – - yest SearchFord was giving the Tax error. The only solution was to stop the error is to comment out the – if( count( $tax_query ) – section in searchford-public.php – that stopped the error. Fred

Hi,

Thanks for figuring out the problem yourself. It would have been hard for me to debug without access to your source files.

Hope everything works out for you.

Hello! I have been using this great plugin for a long time , just today I noticed its kicking an error on my site

Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in /home/masterkraze/public_html/wp-content/plugins/searchford/public/searchford-public.php on line 285

Please help as I don’t want to get rid of or change my search Thank you very much!

Hi,

I have submitted a new version (1.0.17) that should fix this bug.

Please update the plugin and see if it works for you.

Regards

Thank you so much! you deserve the 5 stars I gave you :)

The Searchford plugin on WP site is not working or producing any results. I have re-indexed same issue, zero result. I asked our hosting company, WPEngine to look and they found these logs. You can reach me at tzboyan@karrtuttle.com or dkemp@karrtuttle.com.

Hi.

When compatibility with WPML is activated, the search engine only works in the main language.

I have the latest versions of all plugins.

Hi,

Do you have a site where I could take a look?

You can also reach me at support@archtheme.com

Hi there, I’m looking to add this plugin as the photo gallery I’m using doesn’t include an image search. I saw that you allow searching on image description, is it also possible to include the image description in the search results, and do the search results also use a lightbox?

Hi,

Yes image search is available, and users can search in the image description.

However this plugin affects what search results are shown, and not how the search results are shown. This plugin includes a live search preview, however the search results page depends on your theme.

If you current theme search page does not support image lightbox, then this plugin will not change that.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Thanks for your reply. I understand now where it’s coming from. I’ve one more question before I buy. I know this searches posts, pages, etc, but can I use it to just search images in the image library? Even if they haven’t been attached to a page?

Hi,

Yes, it’s possible to only search for media from the image description.

Regards

What is the correct php string to pass the search query to AFS ( adsense for search ) With regular WP search it is : query”: ”<?php echo get_search_query(); ?>”, What will it be here, this is so that the search results can contain paid search above and below Thanks

var pageOptions = {
  "pubId": "pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxx", // Make sure this the correct client ID!
  "query": "<?php echo get_search_query(); ?>",
  "adPage": 1,
  "location": false,
  "sellerRatings": false,
  "siteLinks": false

yes it works but it thinks that ”<?php echo get_search_query(); ?>” is the search term instead of picking up the query from that tag. In other words it is not being dynamically replaced.

Hi,

Can you send me a Dashboard login? I’ll take a look.

You can reach me at support@archtheme.com

I sent you a mail – obliged

Hello,

I recently purchased the license for searchford and installed this (v. 1.0.17, WordPress 5.3.2). But I cannot activate the plugin. I get this error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 33554440 bytes) in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/searchford/admin/searchford-admin.php on line 605

Can you please help me?

Thanx, Robert

Hi,

Please try to add the following in your wp-config.php file

define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M' );

and see if it works.

Regards

Now I get a different fatal error: Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/searchford/admin/searchford-admin.php on line 279

Hi,

Can you send me a Dashboard login to your site? I’ll take a look.

Pre-sales Question, Can the plugin do hierarchy categories/taxonomies search like this.

Eg. We set 2 category for user to search, 1st Category Search only display Parent Category 2nd Category Search only display Child Category after customer choose the parent category.

Hi,

Sorry this plugin does not support the type of search function you are looking for.

Regards

Hi is it possible to access you demo site so we can see the [plugin how it works exactly in backend and what the settings is includes?

Hi,
