    On https://artroomhero.com/search-lessons/
    When i search “Teacher” in either of the search input box (left or top or even on the home page input box)
    The results shows a few posts boxes which has word “Teacher” in their individual related Posts Section. I wnat to exclude that. How can it be done.
    For example. Teacher search result will show a post named “Fun and Focus” Post.
    The content of Fun and Focus does not have the word teacher but its related posts section has the word teacher and hence its shown in the results.
    How can i avoid this.

    Also Is it possible to keep all check boxes unchecked (display all posts) and whne i check mark on a filter, the filter works. When i check all button, all posts display. So basically. All unchecled and all checked show all posts. on Load i want all boxex unchecked.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    Thank you for the details!

    It looks like one of the custom fields seem to contain the teacher keyword, but it would be very hard to tell which one exactly. So I made a tiny modification to the search configuration. I have enabled the index table engine, and configured it to search the lesson related custom fields. Then I recreated the index table.
    It should not contain the unwanted results for the related posts keywords.

    1. Well, basically all I did was what I sent through the screenshot. Just selected the custom fields, then re-created the index. Then I got back to the search instance options to enable the index table.

    2. Sure, you can change that here: https://i.imgur.com/XFVrl67.png

    Thank you so much.
    I have another point where i need help.

    On the Search Lesson page
    https://artroomhero.com/search-lessons/

    The left filters are using an AND operation for filtering.
    For example, a post is under the cateogry
    English, Other Medium and Instilling Creative Confidence.

    If i select ANY of the above in the left filters, the post should come up. Currently the post shows up only if ALL the three categories are checked.

    Thank you.

    Thanks. It worked.
    But I’m facing another issue.

    On the Search Lesson page
    https://artroomhero.com/search-lessons/

    When i select any individual check box or a multiple checkboxes, the results are contrained to only 6 pages in the pagination. When there are more posts.
    When i click on reset, I see only 6 pages in the pagination.
    What could have gone wrong.

    Also is ther a custom message that i can Write when there are no search results. Currently it says “no Reuslts”. I would like to add a custom message here. Is this Possible.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Try increasing the result limits here: https://i.imgur.com/lURKHBB.png
    That should affect the number of final pages.
