I'm using your Types and Views plugin on this Jobs Recruitment site and I've created a parametric search that works on the search page here: hidden link

I've then created a widget on the home page that displays only the form: hidden link

That widget is the WP Views Filter widget and it should normally have a working 'target page' drop down list. However the dropdown list isn't working. Yes I do have several sets of pages and created a dedicated search page as referenced above.

I cannot get the search form to forward the search to the appropriate search page.

What can I do to fix this issue?

I'm using:

Wordpress 3.9.1
Types: 1.5.7
Views: 1.6.1

Thank you.

Hi Cathie,

Please try this:
1) deactivate other plugins and switch to wordpress default theme,
2) enable wordpress debug mode, repeat the actions you mentioned above, and post the debug logs here.
Also check if there is any javascript errors

and you can add a text widget, put Views filter form shortcode into it, like this:
[wpv-form-view name="my view name" target_id="123"]
123 is the target page ID


I haven't tried the debug but did use your text widget example and it works a dream.
Thank you.
