My Replete site is becoming enormous. So I need to be able to categorize searches done on the site to a couple categories like Products, Online Store, Research and Case Studies, The Rest.
What’s your recommendation to go about this with this template? With so many plugins, and only a few, however, that claim to allow this type of sorting… How do you suggest I do this?
Thanks for your help…July 19, 2013 at 2:27 pm #130470
You can try: http://wordpress.org/plugins/facetious/ which supports post types, terms, etc.
The main problem is the implementation. I’d use the widget or create a special search template which displays the form. If you want to replace the standard search form in header.php you need to edit/replace following code
if(!avia_woocommerce_enabled() || avia_get_option('header_search') != 'product')
however I’d recommend to use the widget instead because there’s not enough space in the header and you’ll mess up the styling.July 21, 2013 at 4:35 am #130471
I’m trying this… and as with the standard WP search, Replete is returning no results. Hundreds of documents there. Can you advise?
Thanks Dude…July 21, 2013 at 5:10 am #130472
Can this plugin search custom fields? I want to bypass all the tags, categories, etc. and just create a couple of custom fields.. products, reviews, etc…. and then assign all my pages and posts to one of them. Then the user can choose which field to search by. Make sense?
I can’t get facetious to even recognize my custom fields
Thanks Dude…July 21, 2013 at 6:13 am #130473
Can this plugin search custom fields? – No, I don’t think so because this requires advanced wp queries and you probably need to hire someone to implement such a search. You can also try Relevanssi: http://wordpress.org/plugins/relevanssi/ which replaces the deault wp search with a (more accurate) index based search.July 21, 2013 at 7:17 am #130474
Thanks!!… I sorted it.. I’m using a plugin to add categories to pages, and then using Taxonomy Picker. Pretty cool.
Logistics now though…
1. I need to get rid of the search box in the header (I tried… broke it, can you help?)
Also need to make further use of the header small menu… woo commerce is using it now… how could I add a “Search” menu item here?
2. my search results pages have no nav menu in the header, and the footer widgets are all screwed up. Can you help? Don’t know where this page is.
So, search page is fine…
But results pages look like this (no nav menu and footer is broken)
Thanks for your help!!… really jazzed to be able to customize this search!July 21, 2013 at 8:10 am #130475July 22, 2013 at 1:56 pm #130476
1) In functions-enfold.php delete
add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'avia_append_search_nav', 10, 2 );
1b) You can add your “search link” to a custom menu (Appearance > Menus). Assign the menu to the right theme location.
2) It seems like the category parameter breaks the page. Maybe the plugin uses a different template – I don’t know. The standard searchJuly 22, 2013 at 5:53 pm #130477
Thanks Dude. I don’t see that code in the functions.php. Should I possibly looking elsewhere? I checked the original too.
Also, about the menu… Woo Commerce is using the secondary menu position. Don;t know how/where… but can I somehow add to it? If I assign menu items there now the Woo Commerce stuff disappears.

And… is there a way I can place a widget in it’s place there? That… would be ideal.
Thanks again.July 25, 2013 at 5:10 am #130479
1) Yes – sry. The code is located in functions-enfold.php.
2) Yes but afaik you can add all these woocommerce menu links (eg “My Account” link, etc.) to the menu by selecting the right pages on the admin page (Appearance > Menus). If you want to add an extra log in link you can use this code: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/woocommerce-login-on-top
