facetwp index a field in a related post type


{{gist file=”custom-hooks.php” lang=”php”}}
** look up and index a value from a post relationship field
** set the datasource to the relationship field
** get the post id of that related post and use it to
** lookup its associated value
** for ACF you may want get_field() instead of get_post_meta()
** remember to do a full re-index after adding code
** check the wp_facetwp_index table if needed to see what values are being indexed
