(please see the attached screenshot)
I am using a combination of the Divi web builder and formidable forms to create a web application.
Does anyone know how to stipulate the search criteria for the web builder search element so that it would only target the logged in users entries in the formidable view that is shown on that page?
As of now it is searching the entire database (posts/pages/etc).

    • I did try using the formidable views search tool, but it was really limited and clunky from a formatting perspective. Thanks.

I don't know that you can. While I'm not a Divi user, most WordPress searches will allow you to search posts, pages, and CPTs, none of which apply to Formidable Data. To access Formidable data, you need to build a custom search form and display the results in a view. See this knowledge base article:

Also, you could "fork" a "standard" search bar to focus in on FP data, but this would require some hacking -
