    I think you should add a check for !is_admin() in function cstmsrch_searchfilter because the way WordPress handles the query in admin. WordPress adds the post_type value to a hidden input in the search form and due to your plugin setting post_type as an array, the next search is a WordPress error “Wrong article type”.
    Hope it is understandable. :)
    Just to make it clearer. To see the error: In the posts page of the admin panel make a search, and in the search results page make another search. You will get an error page.

    • Hi Christian,

      Thank you for drawing our attention to this problem, the necessary changes will be made in the next update of the plugin.
