CustomFieldsSearch v1.1.1

By ToI Planning
Posted November 6, 2008, in Administrative Interface.


This plugin allows you to search by Custom Fields value. Moreover, it is possible to search it for only the field that has been specified. "AND Search" and "OR Search" can be possible.

This plugin does not correspond to the "AND search" and the OR "search" by the notation that MT (since 4.2) has, nor does it correspond to the category filtering and the author filtering by the notation that MT (since 4.2) has.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

Update: Fixed! See below
Running 4.31 and 0.1.7 of this plugin.
The plugin works on its own, but seems to break search pagination.

Past the second page, the pager links keep tacking limit and page values onto the end of the URL, rather than incrementing the page, which seems to confuse something, ie:

&search=foo [1st page]
&search=foo&limit=20&page=2 [2nd page; correct]

(Links have been truncated to show only the important bits of the query.)

It’s unclear at the moment if this is ultimately the fault of the plugin or something in the core, though, since those values appear to be coming from core functions only.

Hello Su.
Thank you for the comment.

We released 0.1.8 that fixed a bug about pagination in MT4.31.

0.1.7 has not been able to process the parameter of “page” appropriately.

Please try 0.1.8.

I didn’t see your reply until last night, so using 0.1.9(just in case), but it looks like you got it. Thanks so much.

Does this plugin work for MT5? Installed it, but can’t seem to find where I designate a field to be searchable.

I am getting following error while search some custom field in MT 5 Pro.

Can’t use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at /var/www/html/plugins/CustomFieldsSearch-0.2.5/lib/CustomFieldsSearch/ line 558. /CustomFieldsSearch-0.2.5/lib/CustomFieldsSearch/ line 558.

Can you please let me know the solution for this issue?

Hello Andrew.
I’m very sorry for the delay of my reply.

A latest version of CustomFieldsSearch is 1.0.2.
This version is tested in MT5.0 and MT5.1.

The usage is explained here.

Hello Gaurav.

That bug is fixed in version 1.0.2.
And, this version is completely compatible with 0.2.5.
