    Hi,

    I have subdomain website and in the subdomain, I have created few custom fields. I want the search in the main site to display subdomain sites based on the search of the custom fields. I tried this earlier and it was working. In a new installation, it is not working. Can you please help ?

    Scenario
    =======
    a. my subdomain site is http://demo1.satviks.com. In the home page, I have created 3 custom fields ZipCode, Cusine & Location.
    b. I have created a Ajax Search called “Restaurant”. In the General Options -> Sources -> Available public custom fields types, I do not see the above 3 custom fields I have created.
    c. I am not able to use the search “Restaurant” for search for the subdomain site.

    I did exactly same in my another test site http://eyeonwellness.net (same user id / password applicable as for satviks.com). Here is I can see the custom fields and also can be used in the search.

    The only difference is that eyeonwellness is on Version 4.8.1 and Satviks.com is on Version 4.8.4. Am I missing anything ? Is there a different setting to be done in 4.8.4 ?

    Thanks.

    Hi!

    I just logged in to the demo1.statviks.com website, and I’m able to see and select all 3 of these custom fields: Screenshot1, Screenshot2

    Maybe there was only some kind of caching involved from wordpress core.

    Hi,

    Thanks.. Yes, I see now the fields in http://demo1.satviks.com

    The search result works but in Version 4.8.1 (In http://eyeonwellness.net), I see the custom fields even in the main site but in the new Version 4.8.4 (in http://satviks.com), I see the custom fields ONLY in the subdomain search engine. Is this by design in new version ?

    Hi!

    I just checked the version control, but I haven’t changed the file responsible for that list in v4.8.4, it should be the same in al 4.8.x versions so far.

    Maybe on the other site the custom fields are created on the main site as well? As far as I know on multisite installations the custom fields are not shared, they are unique for each blog. ( I might be wrong though, I’m not sure )
