We have 3 taxonomies set up for our custom post type “Technologies” which are as follows:
- Patent Status
We want the end user to be able to search within these taxonomies, not within specific taxonomies.
Patent Status has these 2 categories:
- Patent Pending
Instead of having the user select “Patented” or “Patent Pending”, they would select “Patent Status” and then search for either “Patent Pending” or “Patented” in order to find the custom posts that are categorized that way.
The reason for this is because we have multiple “Inventor” categories and 8 “Importance” categories that we would like users to be able to search within.
“Importance: Category 1, Inventor: Category 7, Patent Status: Patented” and then the appropriate results will show up.
As of right now, we have to add each Category instead of an entire taxonomy. How would we add an entire taxonomy?May 21, 2015 at 9:48 am #4812
It’s not possible right now. I understand your point, but the problem is that the posts (or custom post types) are not categorized by taxonomies (Importane, Inventor, Parent Status) but by taxonomy terms (Patent Pending, Patented etc..) on database level.
Even if this was possible, searching for example “Patented” won’t give you all the results from under the “Patented” category, because the category (term) selectors are filters.
To search in all term names (within all taxonomies) related to each post you can activate the “Search in terms? (categories, tags)” option on the bottom of the General Options -> Sources tab. Please be aware that this might affect the search performance greatly.Best,

I had a feeling it wasn’t going to be something that could be done. Bummer. I appreciate your help.
Have a nice day!
