The most useful addon to ACF

By Zinja on September 11, 2023

Really helpful especially if you have multiple different types of custom fields. We've used it in multiple projects by now - it has lots of options and saves a ton of time. Great support as well! 👍

Great plugin

By dshakya on September 12, 2023

The plugin works as described and is very helpful addition to the ACF. The author is pretty responsive to the issues and fixes are quick as well. Highly recommend it. Appreciate your contribution to the WordPress community.

Excellent plugin

Works for us and easy to use.

Works great with Filter Everything

By James Morton (stylishjm) on July 4, 2023

It worked out of the box with the Filter Everything plugin, whereas Relevanssi, SearchWP and a whole bunch of other search extending plugins did not do the job.

Responsive and help support

By Michael Beckwith (tw2113) on June 30, 2023

Not only was the plugin author responsive in a timely manner, they also actually updated their code to allow for filtering in new options to potentially search through. This opens the door for other plugin authors that work with ACF Field types to automatically extend ACF Better Search on their own.

Working together to make awesome interoperable plugins for the win.

As simple as making a few clicks and the search results appear. Fantastic!

Works Great for Posts using ACF flexible layouts

By 4briang on March 7, 2023

Easy set up and it just works. Hoping to find a way to exclude specific posts by id or author id from search but overall works great!

Works well
