Country

Country Field must have LIKE for compare and it’s an independent dropdown (it doesn’t filter specific states, cities or areas)

The country field was originally designed to allow users to select their default country (which shows automatically in Add Property) and allows selecting the property location on the map (latitude and longitude).

The field was not created to be allowed on a multi-country platform and for that reason Country is independent from States, Cities and Country and will show all countries automatically.

The list of countries is visible in General Settings and Add Property pages.

In front end country will show all countries as independent dropdown

What to check if search doesn’t return the correct results

The theme looks for properties by their title and slugs (in order to work in multiple languages).
That is why it’s extremely important that for search to work titles and slugs match. 
Please be sure you follow these instructions when you ADD or EDIT new property category. This applies to new or edited CATEGORIES, ACTIONS, CITIES, AREAS, and STATES.
  • 1. Add a new category. Type Name
  • 2. LET WORDPRESS CREATE THE SLUG (title and slugs must always match for search results to be accurate).  This way search will work with pins correctly.
