Our How to Unlock Custom Taxonomies Within MyListing Quick Search guide will show you how to do this step-by-step.

By default, MyListing does not allow the searching of Listings with Custom Taxonomies, within the Quick Search bar.


  1. Grab the Unlock Custom Taxonomies With MyListing Quick Search Code Snippet 1, replacing the ‘Custom Tax’ entries with the actual names of your own Custom Taxonomies.
  2. Grab Code Snippet 2 and have it ready in your clipboard.
  3. Using an FTP application or File Manager plugin, browse to the following location within the MyListing Parent Theme: /wp-content/themes/my-listing/includes/src/queries
  4. Copy the ‘quick-search.php’ file to your location workstation and edit it with your preferred text editor.
  5. Insert the contents of Code Snippet 2, just above the line that reads ‘if ( apply_filters( ‘mylisting/quicksearch/show-regions’, true ) === true ) {”.
  6. Save changes.
  7. Add the following folder structure to your MyListing Child Theme: /wp-content/themes/my-listing-child/includes/src/queries
  8. Copy the updated ‘quick-search.php’ to the location in step 7.
