I’m working with an options page to set up site wide configurations. I have a relationship field that lets me select some posts to be displayed on a site rail. The issue is that it turns out to be tremendously hard to find the content I’m looking for: even when I type in the exact post name the content won’t populate and I have to scroll way too much to find it on the results box.
Is there anything I can do to improve the search here?
The ACF relationship field uses the built in search mechanism. If any word you type is in the title or content of the post then it will appear in the list. If the exact phrase appears then it should be closer to the top, but it needs to be exact.
ACF only loads a few posts at a time, not sure of the number. If it stops before it has shown all the possibilities then there might be an error during the AJAX request. You might be able to figure out the error by turning on error logging.
