Combined Search

Description

In todayโ€™s world, no WordPress Site Administrator should be without Combined Search. This uniquely formulated WordPress Plugin has been developed to allow Site Administrators like you to search for content that could not previously be searched for โ€“ like comments, category names, descriptions, custom taxonomies, and more.

You can configure Combined Search to your heartโ€™s content, enabling it to search pages, attachments, excerpts, drafts, tags, comments, metadata and (most) everything in-between. Need to exclude certain pages and posts? Done.

Getting started is easy. Install via the WordPress dashboard or manually by downloading the plugin and adding it to your wp-content/plugins/ folder. Visit the Plugins page in your WordPress administration area, and click โ€œactivateโ€. Configure it to your liking, and youโ€™re ready to start searching.

PS: The only thing you canโ€™t search is password-protected content, naturally. Combined Search can and will change the ability of the default WordPress Search; from highlighting to purely approved comments and so much more.

Allows me to search tags on my woocommerce products, and is working in the current version of WordPress (5.0.3) for me. Great plugin – thanks!
