thanks for your reply! I’m still running into the issue. I did some testing on a different sub-site within the same environment. The relationship field works as expected there. It seems it’s indeed a compatibilty-issue with the theme (which I wrote). So I’m trying to figure out where I’m altering the WP default behavior in a way that would prevent the relationship field’s search from working.
