Video for Advanced Search type 8 setup 

Advanced Search type 8 includes 2 default fields: auto-complete for the city, area, state fields + a 2nd dropdown taxonomy field All Types OR All Actions (depends on what you select as the source for the tabs – see below).

It will show only over theme header media – http://help.wpresidence.net/article/global-header-options/

You can test it on this demo http://sydney.wpresidence.net/

Specifications about how Type 8 Search works:

1. Search type 8 shows only in header media.

Header media means Header Google Maps, Header Rev Slide, Header Listings/Properties slider OR Header Image.

The advanced search widget, shortcode, and mobile search sync with the custom fields set in theme options (not the tabs/auto-complete search)

2. The auto-complete information resets when landing on the advanced search results. The user must select a new option for a new search

3. Search type 8 works only with custom fields enabled.

Custom Fields setup
