pre sales question: any way to automatically show up results from a selected category at click ( without typing ) ??
Unfortunately this function is not available with this plugin.
It is possible to prevent this searching the Description – or only searching Whole words ?
The reason is if we search for a – hat
then if there is a word in description like – whatever
then even if that product is car food, it will be found as a hat because it is finding the letters hat in the word – whatever – that is in the description.
For example in your demo, if I enter – car it returns a product called Happy Ninja jacket. That is not a car.
Yes. You can search for whole words if you disable Fuzzy search in your settings. It’s built into the plugin. For multiple words, you can choose whether you want the results to search for OR or AND.
Sounds great, however I am just a bit confused looking at your demo.
I would like to use your plugin in a Search bar at the top of the home page, in particular in the Revo theme for wordpress.
In your demo I cannot see an example of how it is integrated within an exsiting theme ?
Can it be done, so like in the Header or similar ? or is it only in a dedicated dialog box like in a sidebar or whatever ?
This plugin can turn the default WP search form into a search bar with live search results, so you can add a search form anywhere as normal, and it will automatically have search boosted.
If you want multiple search forms with different search criteria, you can create custom search forms easily, and then add it to your page through shortcode or widget. You can add it directly to your theme files, or enter it in a post, or add it as a widget.
I want search only comments content, it works?
Yes, it’s possible to search only in comments.
Any website that I can try? beacuse demo no search bar for try.
Please try the demo at http://demo.archtheme.com/searchford/
There should be around 6 to 7 search bars with different criteria.
Hi, when i search for a word from a page on my site, the search doesnt pick it up. Why is that?
Is your page a custom post type? What is your Searchford settings like? Is the word a custom meta field or in the content field? If possible, please send the Dashboard login to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can take a look at your settings and better debug the problem.
We just bought Searchford to replace Relevanssi on http://optimaldesignco.com/, but we’re having problems with it:
(1) It’s not finding all instances of the keyword. For example, the keyword “linux” appears in an Open Position item (a custom post type), in a Portfolio item (a custom post type), and on the Software page (in an ACF repeater field), but Searchford only finds the job post. Relevanssi was able to find all three instances.
(2) It’s not creating a custom excerpt that features the keyword. For example, in the Linux search above, the excerpt doesn’t include the “linux” keyword.
(3) The “read more” link doesn’t work—it’s not directing to the working page.
We moved to a paid/premium plugin to ensure our site would have robust search capabilities, but these results are obviously less than ideal. How can we find & fix the problems above? Please let me know – thank you!
You can ignore #3 – I re-saved permalinks and that cleared up the issue. Looking forward to your help with #1 & #2. Thanks!
Thanks for your inquiry.
Could you please leave this message again with the account you purchased the plugin with? Or send your purchase code to email@example.com.
The live search does not support the use of HTML in page titles. For example, if my page title is Page Name®, the HTML code shows up in the live search instead of it being parsed and showing a registered sign in superscript. Is there a fix for this? Thanks!
Try the following:
1. Edit the file /wp-content/plugins/searchford/public/searchford-public.php
2. Find line 869 and change it from
$content .= $searchford_option['display_title'] == 1 && $post->post_title != '' ? '<div class="searchford-title' . $with_excerpt . '">' . esc_attr( $post->post_title ) . '</div>' : '';
$content .= $searchford_option['display_title'] == 1 && $post->post_title != '' ? '<div class="searchford-title' . $with_excerpt . '">' . $post->post_title . '</div>' : '';
If you are using the Masonry view let me know because you need to change a different line.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the heads up.
I’m very interested in purchasing this plugin. Quick question: Will this work with The Events Calendar (Modern Tribe)?
I did a quick test and Searchford supports The Events Calendar. A basic setting will allow you to find events by its title, description, tags and event categories. I have not tested with other fields such as venue, date, time etc.
Do you have any special search requirements?
Nope. I think that’s it. My only other question is whether there’s a way to test in on my client’s site before purchasing or if there’s a return period.
Unfortunately there is no test trial period or free version.
If the plugin fails to perform as advertised even after seeking support, then I will be happy to provide a refund. Please note that this is not applicable for any plugin customization.
Got it. Thanks.
I have recently purchased your plugin. Love its functionality!
While performing a few search tests, I have come accros a techincal warning, which appears if you include the ”/” special character in the search terms: “Warning: preg_replace(): Unknown modifier ’/’ in …searchford-public.php on line 136”.
Could you please help me solve this issue?
Thank you in advance!
Do you mind providing a live site where I could take a look? I can’t seem to replicate the issue on my end.
Unfortunately the website isn’t live yet, but I get the same error when I perform a search which contains ”/” on your demo website. Please see here: http://demo.archtheme.com/searchford/?s=%2F&sf=1769
Thanks for pointing out the bug. I’ll fix it as soon as I can and release an update.
In the weight settings, can you have a weighted search based on tags or other taxonomy? Are you able to post any other backend screenshots of how this is done, or a link to documentation prior to purchase?
Yes, tags and categories and custom taxonomies can have different weights. However different custom taxonomies still share the same weight.
A screenshot of the admin settings: http://i.imgur.com/KaGku4o.png
Currently there is no online version of the documentation. I’ll look into adding it later.
