comment How do I use wp_query for WordPress search?
Hi @moraleida, I just tried it but I'm not getting any results from custom fields in the search. Here's the code from my search.php file: pastie.org/private/jhgsmaolvjyswyhsfphlfa and here's the code from searchform.php: pastie.org/private/o3hrtqajh8hbkiht1nyoba

Hi Moraleida, thanks for the answer. I'll surely try it out. I don't know who down-voted the answer, but I can't even vote because my reputation is low as a newbie here. I'll try out the code that you've suggested. My search form has 5 drop-down fields with values for those 5 custom fields. Should I just use the form as-is, with you code above?

Hi @Pontus, at the risk of sounding greedy, can you please take a look at this other question of mine?: WordPress search via metadata The initial code seems to be baffling everyone so I would like to implement the search form using wp_query as suggested by one of the commenters. What is your opinion? Any pointers or code sample would really be appreciated because I'm not so good at tweaking WP.

Thanks a lot guys, I'll try it out. One more thing please, how can I display this particular attachment as a link for download when people are viewing the post? Can I set it to be stored in a custom field? That way I can retrieve it using get_post_meta. Thanks again.
