When I search just by zip code or address the plugin works fine. BUT when i start to check other option fields it seems to always come up as no results found…
ALSO: wanted to know how the search works with the profile fields.
If I check one of the profile field options I set up out of 4 options in the search: will the results only show people with only that field selected or will it show people that have that field and they might have other fields selected in their profiles as well.
Basically if I want to look for everyone that likes red and i dont care what they have for other profile fields as long as they have red.
I hope that makes sense. basically does every field have to be true on a profile to show up in the search.
Thanks so much for all your help!October 18, 2012 at 6:12 pm #34411Eyal FitoussiMember
EDIT : a little mistake. I said “if you check two option he must at least have those two options but can have others and so on” which is wrong. if you check more than one option for a certain fields so the user must have at least one of those options that you check in order to be displayed in the search results.
in a profile field When you check an option the user must have at least that option but can also have other options. if you check two option he must at least have those two options but can have others and so on. i know it is confusing but for example we have to profile fields: fruit (Banana, apple, pineapple) and colors (red , yellow, green).
if we only check red in the search form (we don’t choose fruit) the results will show all user’s that have at least red but could also have green or yellow. and same would be if we search again and only check from fruit fields. Now if we search again and check red and apple it will show all users that have at least red and at least apple in their profile.
So the answer to your question is no , you don’t have to choose from every profile field you can leave some or all empty it will ignore them. And if you check only red from the colors and leave the fruit field empty it should give you the results you want.
and if you get no results no matter what you choose maybe there is a bug. let me know if the above helps to understand better and if you got it solved.
Also, can you post a link to your site so i could see if there is a problem?
