To start with I’m using an older version of Roots, just before it became Sage…
The reason I’m asking here, is i’ve tried what WordPress suggested and no luck.
I need a new search form that will only search a custom post type I have called ‘products’.
I’m not sure if there is a specific way I need to do this using Roots.
This is totally not a roots specific question but if resources you’re looking at aren’t working I highly recommend Search WP: https://searchwp.com/
Also if you do think it’s a Roots issue, you’ll have to post what you said you tried - “what WordPress” suggested"
wordpress suggests adding
<input type="hidden" value="products" name="post_type">
to my search form.
Is nice search enabled? If so have you tried disabling it?
