  1. I am not able to search by category or tag name. I have assigned the post to categories in the admin panel. Is their any thing else I need to do to enable category or tag search from search input box?

  2. Hi great video, just wondering how to improve the search function of wordpress, since it just evaluates titles and content in posts, i want to add it categories, author, dates.

  3. Maybe somebody can answer this – is there any reason why you use div.hd-search to target the search bar, instead of just .hd-search?

  4. Could you please show us how to, when no results are available, show "No results found. Search again? [__search box__] ?

    Thanks for the tutorials (again). I have watched these dozens of times over the past half year of learning code.

  5. Hi you are doing some great work! Can you please give some pointers on this. I have a database with certain information, I need to run certain querys based on user input and display the data. I tried to do it in the traditional way, by doing < form action="formprocess.php"…> but when I load get_header() in formprocess.php it gives me a fatal error.

  6. Great tutorial! You have learnt me a lot! Thank you!
    I have a question. In HTML5 specification it is said to use "article", "section" etc instead of the "div" element. Isnt it wrong to use only "div" elements?
