Reviews

Disyembre 17, 2023
I wonder why there are no reviews for this wonderful plugin.I remember this search form in the default BuddyPress theme, and it was the default theme search in the heather.I'm glad we have it back as widget.There is one small problem though. When searching in posts with Bulgarian language, which uses Bulgarian (Cyrillic) letters it fails to output result, and gives global error:"This site can’t be reachedCheck if there is a typo in truden.㯘." I tried to exclude "posts" from the search form, but since it is "default" option, it cannot be removed from the search. Which makes no sense, since the posts are not in the BuddyPress area and priorities. Hope that it will be fixed quickly.
