    Hi,
    I have a quick question why when I search my blog the search bar is not searching inside the custom fields? What can I do in order to extend the search function to include all the text inside the custom field?

    For example I have:
    Location: Alamo Square / Nopa
    and when I search:
    Alamo Square / Nopa no results are displayed.

    Thank you

    I really need to be able to search inside the costume fields. Any Admins that can tell me how to do this.

    Default WordPress search doesn't search custom fields.

    You have to try with advanced search plugins or build a custom one.

    You can try with these plugins:

    WP Ultimate Search: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ultimate-search/

    Advanced Search Widget: http://wedevs.com/plugin/advanced-search-widget/

    or, search on wp repo: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=advanced+search
