    I have a custom post type “regions” and custom taxonomy of “postcodes”.

    I need the search to work on part words. At the beginning of the words

    I have 1 test set up.

    searching Exeter, ex1 or ex10 or EX16HY, EX1 6HY should all return the ‘Exeter’ region which has a tag of “ex1” and Title of “Exeter” assigned to it.
    I have the logic set to OR but this function is not working.

    Hi,

    Exeter and EX1 are working all right on my end:
    – Exeter: https://i.imgur.com/IebLpQG.png
    – Ex1: https://i.imgur.com/U8dYKLL.png
    – Ex1 6HY: https://i.imgur.com/3tsZTLE.png
    The words EX16HY and EX10 will not work, because there is no such word or part of word anywhere in tags, nor the title or content for that item.
    If you need to match those keywords, you can either add the postcodes, or use the additional search keywords box.

    I have ex1 in the postcodes tag taxonomy. I was hoping that would recognised as a part word for both searches ex10 and ex16hy.
    ex1 space 6hy will work as ‘ex1’ is a separate phrase but not the part word recognition without the space ‘ex16hy’.

    Is there any way to get part word recognition for the custom taxonomy ‘postcodes’ ?

    Thanks

    It works the opposite way – the phrase must be a part of the match, not the match keyword as part of the phrase, there is no way of doing that unfortunately.

    You can however use the synonyms feature. That is a great way for adding similar keywords, and it works globally. Make sure that you recreate the index once you added the synonyms.
