    Hi,

    I have a question about the Search Filter Pro.
    On my website, I’m using it as a download file manager. You can find it here: https://dev.jungundbillig.de/mcin/downloadportal/
    Right now, it is possible to select between different categories, which works really well.

    My problem is, that if I search something, the results in the output are only for the selected categories. Is it possible to have some categories selected and still search in all the files?

    I tried to find this in the options but didn’t find something, nor the documentation or the troubleshooting page.

    Thanks in advance!
    Andrea

    Hi Andrea,

    Well, it could be doable, by using 2 separate search bars – one without the filters on top, and the other one with the search bar comletely disabled.
    I would proceed like this:
    – Leave the search you already have, and disable the search bar here: https://i.imgur.com/GGEKWSf.png
    – Create a new search bar (without any filters), and put it’s shortcode before the existing one.

    Best,

    Hi Ernest,

    thank you for the quick answer.
    I tried this out and it works pretty well, now I will see if our client likes this solution as well.

    Regards,
    Andrea
