I am told that the corresponding country names are stored in a different table in the data base and it is serialized…. “Extended profile value of is stored in postmeta table.
You can find it using SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'select_options' AND post_id = [YOUR_POST_ID].
As a note, the data is in serialized format.”
Can Ajax search handle serialized data? Or is the best option to have a function that does replacement in the search results…so replace “option_3197_2” with “Afghanistan”. Will I also then be able to search for “Afghanistan”?
Please let me know what could be a solution to this problem.
