Version: 1.3 Disable the search capabilities of WordPress.
Disable the search capabilities of WordPress.
Prevent WordPress from allowing and servicing any search requests for the blog. Specifically, this plugin:
get_search_form()function to display the search form).
NOTE: If your theme (child and/or parent) contains a
searchform.php template file, you must rename or remove them. Otherwise they will likely be used by the theme to display the search form. The form won't work (thanks to this plugin), but it will still be displayed. WordPress currently does not provide a means for the plugin to circumvent the theme's use of this template file.
Until such time as this
searchform.php override becomes possible, a notice will be shown to admin users on the site's themes and plugins admin pages if the active theme (and/or parent theme) contains a
searchform.php template. See the FAQ section for how to remove the message if you don't want to remove/rename the template file(s).
