    Hi Brandon,
    Thank you for the reply.

    I am sorry, the search is not aware of the age. I do see that using the age makes a lot more sense for birthdate field search but it is not available that way. I will need to explore it in future(Currently, it simply maps the field type to date).

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Support

    I am running into the same issue, where I set up a “tag” field for my users to select and input some skill sets. but in Buddyboss’s “profile search” setting, I cannot add this tag to the search function. on the other hand, “country” works.

    Can you please advise on this, and fix the “tag” field?

    Hi Genny,
    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    At the moment, only the following fields are searchable:-
    * Birthdate
    * Datepicker
    * Color
    * Email
    * Web
    * Number Min/Max
    * Range Input
    * Decimal Number
    * Country

    Other fields are stored as serialized data(due to back compatibility of the forked plugin) and are not searchable.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    thanks for the update.. is there a way to make it work? let’s say I hire a developer to do custom coding?

    Hi,
    I believe a developer can certainly do it. They will need to implement it more on the line of Multi options field. It is not difficult to create a new field type with similar feature.
