I’m sure there are problems with disappearing posts.
I use custom post types “company”. Each post has the ability to evaluate with comment. I use the “Multi Rating Pro” plugin integrated with the wordpress comments. Each rating and comment is displayed only after approval by the administrator. I use the “Search & filter” plugin for search. The search results appear in the search-company.php file, and I have the sort ordered in the plugin after “Meta Value“, Sort By Meta Key: “mrp_rating_result_1_star_rating”.
Description of the problem:
When the user adds a comment and rating, and if it is accepted, the post that was evaluated is disapproved in the search results. The problem disappears when you disable sort after Meta Value or when you disable the option to accept comment and rating.
Why is this happening? How to fix it?
