Using Super Search 2.0.7, I want to be able to search on a custom Playa field using the results template tag.

    channel       = "entries"
    keywords      = "something"
    cf_city       = "Boston"
    dynamic       = "off"

I can get this to work perfectly fine using GET params:


Am I missing something to get this functionality working with template tag params?

You need to make sure the field is set to "searchable" in the field settings page but you should be able to get the two working together.

Super Search has limited support for Pixel & Tonic's Playa add-on. You can perform regular searches (excluding exact, ranges, etc) on entry titles within Playa fields, as long as the field(s) are set to searchable in the custom fields' settings. This means that you are be able to perform direct searches on Playa fields, as well as keyword searches that include Playa field searching.

  • Thank you for taking the time to answer. My Playa field is indeed set to "searchable". Note - I can get this to work with GET params (rather than template params) however that is not what I am trying to do. Apr 22, 2013 at 19:58
  • What if you just remove the keyword parameter (and it's value) from the super_search tag. I know you may need this in there but just to test for the time being to see if that works.
