    The plugin is installed and working well.

    One question: Is there a way to have 20 some categories show on the search page without having to use a scrolling device? When published on a page there is so much room there and I can’t find a way to spread out the categories like was done for the TV search custom fields. Is there a way to do this? I will include an image to explain.

    Thanks you.

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Currently there is no option for that. Someone recently asked a similar question, and I recommended a custom CSS solution, to display the categories next to one another. Try this:

    .asp_sb {
        max-width: none !important;
    }
    
    .asp_sb fieldset {
        flex: 1 1 0 !important;
    }
    
    .asp_sb fieldset.asp_filter_tax {
        flex: 10 1 auto !important;
    }
    
    .asp_filter_tax,
    .asp_filter_tax .asp_simplebar-content {
        display: flex !important;
        flex-wrap: wrap;
    }

    It should result in something like this: https://i.imgur.com/ZQRC8mg.png

    It is not the best possible solution, but it may as well work.

    Thank you! That works great! Perfect in fact.

    Preface – I am sure this is user error since when I create a new search instance, without any adjustments and using the regular search engine it works fine! But on the custom searches I get this:

    Now I just have to figure out what the checkboxes do. Sometimes when I check a checkbox it spins and the check disappears. Other times the search spins, it comes up with no posts even with the category selected. Then sometimes if I remove the checkmark it spins again and gives a different search result. When I check two categories and search on a term sometimes it comes with no results even though I know there are some posts in those categories using those terms. Am I making bad assumptions about what the checkboxes mean? Are there settings I have used that are throwing things off?

    Thanks so much

    Tom

    Hi,

    It must be the checkbox logic. It is situational of course, but by default, the plugin displays results, when all of the checkboxes match from the given taxonomy.

    I suggest experimenting a bit with these options, to get the preferred results: https://i.imgur.com/jLeJf57.png
