Search function not working and filter

Even when putting in this code this does not work so I have removed the code.
I think the code for showing filters on this page is not 100% correct either.

I want to show jobs with a filter enabled and no code I have tried works, what is the correct code please?
[jobs per_page=”12″ show_filters=”true”]
Thank you

The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

Have you done any initial troubleshooting yet? If not, please temporarily switch to Twenty Seventeen, which is one of the default WordPress themes. You can do this by installing a plugin that only switches the theme for the current user, linked below:

See if the filters work as they should, and if they do, you’ll need to contact your theme’s developer to see if they can help you troubleshoot.

If things still don’t work properly with Twenty Seventeen, please try checking for conflicting plugins.

To do so, temporarily disable all plugins but WP Job Manager (and related addons), and see if the issue resolves. If it does, try activating your plugins one-by-one and try to reproduce the problem. If it comes back when you activate a particular plugin, you’ve found the culprit.

Just a side-note; before you deactivate your plugins, we recommend that you make a full backup of your site.

Let us know what you find.

Thank you for this. I have disabled every single plugin and checked, still not working.
I have also enabled the 2017 theme, still not working.

Can anyone please assist further? Thank you

Search Function Not Working

The update released on Thursday (3.3.3) has only fixed the search function at the backend and not on my website. Ie. I can now search using SKU etc in my ‘Products’ page in order to update quantity etc…but my customers are not able to search for products by title/key words when they are shopping.

This makes it look like I do not have any products at all.

Can you please confirm when the next update will take place in rectify this issue.

I’m not able to reproduce the same problem on my test site with WooCommerce 3.3.3:

Did you have a chance to check if the problem still happens with Twenty Seventeen theme and only WooCommerce active? If that’s a live site you can use WP Staging to clone the whole site and try the test there. If that solves the problem, you can enable plugins one by one to find the one that makes the difference.

Thank you so much for your help @madeincosmos

I downloaded used the plugin WP Staging to identify the plugin ‘Relevanssi’ was causing the conflict.

I deactivated it on the staging site and was able to find products using a search word.

Logged out of the staging site and logged into my live site. I then deactivated it there and the problem is gone 🙂

Sorry for the long reply but I thought I would detail what steps I took in order to help others that might come across the same issue.

PS> I also downloaded plugin ‘BackWPup’ to download my wordpress site before i did any of the above (as recommended).
