ACF Multi-select Search term only matches from the beginning

  • Hi,

    I have an ACF multi-select taxonomy field, it has a search/autocomplete function (select multiple is set to true).

    If I type in ‘Web’ it will find categories that match:

    – Web dev
    – Web frontend dev
    – Web backend dev

    However if I type in ‘dev’ it returns no results.

    Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

  • Just to expand on this, I’ve found that the above scenario *should* work, however, if the names contain brackets, whatever is inside the brackets is not searchable.

    Searching ‘dev’ does actually return:

    – Web dev (lorem)
    – Web frontend dev (lorem)
    – Web backend dev (lorem)

    However, searching for ‘lorem’ returns no results.

    It’s as if the strings inside the brackets are being ignored?

    Thanks
