I am trying to add this field from here (screenshot), but no results when i make a query.
hidden link

Can you help me make a field for title search?


Dear Simeonov,

Its that simple really, you add the Post Search filter and enable the control just below (Filter Controls, click edit). Make sure you have final releases of both Types and Views.

Which part isnt working? Can I see a URL?



Hi CaridadZ,

hidden link
The field for name works for pages and post, but not work for custom post types. This is Product Name Field.


Can you help me with this issue. I can provide you access. I have to solve this problem before I enter items.
Thanks in advice.


Dear Simeonov,

I will send you a private email requesting.



Dear Simeonov,

Searching wordpress is only looking into post title and post content. You can add a filter to functions.php to change that and make it look in custom fields like this:

add_filter('wpv_filter_query', 'mysearch');
function mysearch($q) {
  $q['meta_compare'] = 'LIKE';
  $q['meta_value'] = $q['s'];
return $q;

This will look for the value in all custom fields instead of title & content. If you want to search for a specific field, you could add $q['meta_key'] = 'wpcf-product-name'

Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with.



Thanks CaridadZ
It's working like a charm. You break walls and make a doors 🙂

Best Regards
