I have entries using the Smart Map address field. I need to get just the entries that have a combination of city and state (city = "Beverly Hills" AND state = "CA"). I am currently only trying to get simpler search state working and only then will I move to state/city. I can get a "fuzzy" that to my understanding will get everything that has "CA" in any of the fields using:

{% set meetings = craft.entries.section('meetings').search('address:' ~ 'CA') %}

But I want to understand how to create a more specific search that specifically finds 'CA' in address.state.

When I try:

{% set meetings = craft.entries.section('meetings').search('address.state:' ~ 'CA') %}

the search returns nothing. No errors either.


  • How do I search specifically in a field like address.state?
  • Extending this question, how do I search address.state AND address.city?

It's more "filtering" than "searching", but take a look at this...

Filtering entries by subfield value

Set a filter parameter when creating your element criteria model...

{% set params = {
    filter: {
        city: 'Beverly Hills',
        state: 'CA'
} %}

{% set meetings = craft.entries.address(params) %}
  • Perfect! Thanks. Follow up...If I wanted to filter just by cities and group them so my 10 meetings in Beverly Hills just appears as on listing for Beverly Hills how would I do that with the "set params = " syntax? Commented Mar 18, 2018 at 19:52
  • I'm not sure I follow. You may want to ask a new question and go into a bit more detail.
