Inquiry on Typesense Wordpress Plugin Functionality
TLDR Sean asked about Wordpress plugin functionality for backend searching. Digamber advised extending the plugin for custom post types and indexing forms, providing a tutorial link.
Apr 14, 2022 (21 months ago)
We are looking to improve the search capability of our wordpress backend, which powers a gatsby frontend.
However the frontend is not a static site (only a few static pages) with html page for typesense to query with the agolia gatsby-plugin and adapter.
Any insight is much appreciated.
Mainly we want to be able to search for custom post types based on the title, meta fields and taxonomies if applicable.
And also we want to index some information from Gravity Forms entries which are currently almost impossible to search in a performant way.

While custom post types aren't supported out of the box you can extend the plugin to add custom post types
You can also index gravity form entries but that would depend on your use case.
You can see a basic tutorial in our docs here
