Custom field not showing in search

Hi,

I can't explain why a custom filed is not in the search options.

It is a Select List (single choice) type of custom field that is set to be available for the specific entry type. Other custom fields that are configured the same are available to select in the search but this one isn't.

Can you please me know how to rectify this situation?

Thanking you

Claudine

First, check that the field has a "searcher" - go to custom fields -> your field -> Edit and check the entry. If there's no searcher, it can't be searched and hence won't appear in the search screens as an option

Perfect that worked!

Thank you Nic
