Hello, this may be more of a Wordpress function question. I’m trying to create an advanced search form in my Roots theme.
My main questions:
- Can the search form detailed below be created with core functions of wordpress. (no extra plugins)
- If a plugin is the best route, any recommendations?
Another option is to use Gravity Forms. I found an interested article here, that details an advanced search with Gravity Forms although I haven’ tried this yet. Looks promising though and flexible enough to scale later on.
Any help is appreciated!
This search would contain multiple parameters such as:
- a category drop drop down
- date range
- author, which is a custom taxonomy attached to posts
- title of the post
- journal, which is also a custom taxonomy attached to posts
- keyword, this could either be tag or body
Here’s an example of the advanced search forms style and layout.
