Turn your WordPress custom-post taxonomies into a search powerhouse! This plugin gives you the ability to provide your users with a widget full of dropdowns based upon parent terms (criterias) and their sub-terms (options).

For example, if you have multiple countrie terms in a country parent term, you can search throw custom-post by selecting one of the countries.

You can use this plugin as a widget or in a content with a shortcode.


  • Custom post choice
  • Taxonomy choice
  • Terms selection (parents/criterias and children/options), can manually sort them
  • Automatic addition of the new terms/options in the selection, or not, with alphabetical re-ordering or not
  • Simple or multiple selection
  • Narrow search (all of the criterias) or broaden search (any of the criterias)
  • Let the user choose the search type
  • Ordering of results by default or by title
  • Generates complete URL
  • Does a proper URL-Rewrite if permalinks are enabled
  • Pagination
  • Search without selection : display all or do nothing
  • Can hide empty terms (ie: without related custom-posts)
  • If the empty terms are hidden and after a narrow search, disable terms which give no results if added to the previous search
  • The results are displayed as custom-post archive
  • Can use jQuery plugin Select2 or not
  • Can use a shortcode

Thanks to Zackdesign's Multiple Category Selection Widget plugin which gives the basic idea.
