    Hi rusvkus,
    The plugin may not loaded on the mobile phone because of data load limitation for phone.
    Related to photos, because of classiPress CSS, photo may hidden from small screen device. I can give you solution for that. By the way how can I check your site?

  • Michael

    I’m guessing by the live demo there is no way to add the custom category fields to this search?

  • author
    Vipul

    Hi Michael,
    You may add new field for search and display but you need to user the wordpress action hooks and filter as per we have added for plugin. Get more details from readme.txt file inside plugin folder.
    Thanks

    • Michael

      Can you send me the readme file for the plugin so I can see what is involved in this before purchasing it? Thanks.

    Thanks

    • Michael

      Thanks for those links, however they don’t go into detail on how to add the custom fields to it. The power of Classipress is the ability to search by the custom fields, I simply want to make sure this plugin will support them before I buy, thanks

  • author
    Vipul

    Hi Michael,
    Actually there is no custom fields support automatically like you saying for search for this plugin. You can show/hide the display search options as display on demo site.
    If you want to add your own custom search, then you have to use plugin action hooks to add your settings mean you have to do customization and add program code to display it and work it. More details are no mention publicly for code security purpose.
    Thanks

  • Colin

    Hi there,
    I need custom field support too. Is this a feature you are looking to add in the future?
    I will buy if I can search custom fields, or if you can guide me through it after purchase.
    Thanks,
    Colin

    • Michael

      Colin, I wound up buying FacetWP, more expensive but way more features. Supports custom fields out of the box. Supports geo-location searching with a small mod.

    Hi all,
    we have updated plugin with custom fields new features and you can get from dashboard…
    Thanks

  • yarono5

    Hi Vipul,

    New features suggestion:
    1. ShortCodes for Quick Search
    2. Possibility to create various search collections (different custom fields in each collection) to be used per category or with ShortCodes: Quick Search for Real Estate, Quick Search for Cars etc.

    Regards,

    Yaron

  • author
    Vipul

    Hi yarono5,
    1) Shortcodes for quick search will never work because the quick search only work with jQuery one page and it must have data loaded to work. That’s why we have added page template to select and work.
    And another reason why don’t added shortcode because if we add shortcode, related css and js have to loaded for each pages and may slower your site. So we have make special page templates and so related css and js loaded for those pages only.
    At last shortcode is not possible for current version of plugin.
    2)Search collection is also not possible because it is js related search and there is no url or storage any where.
    Thanks
