WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a custom post type books and have many meta boxes for it...etc But in the backend, I am not able to search anything.

For example I try to search the custom post type id in the search field, it comes back with no results.

How can I add different search items into the search query?
