I need to enhance search capability for edit.php and custom post type of an existing plugin. I thought WooCommerce had an enhanced Search but I haven't been able to locate the code for it.

Basically, I want to add the ability of searching some post_meta and custom taxonomy. For example:


This would return results where a post's post_meta values are LIKE the one specified for a given key. I would also like to search for post ID and post author, etc.

Has anyone done this before that can point me in the right direction on which hooks I need to use and how I would setup the query?
