Disable Search

Disable the built-in front-end search capabilities of WordPress.

Will this disable the search capabilities in the admin section of the blog?

No.

Will this prevent Google and other search engines from searching my site?

No. This only disables WordPress's capabilities with regards to search.

Why do I still see a search form on my site despite having activated this plugin?

The most likely cause for this is a theme that has the markup for the search form hardcoded into the theme's template file. This is generally frowned upon nowadays (the theme should be calling get_search_form() to get the search form). There is no way for this plugin to prevent this hardcoded form from being displayed.

However, even if this is the case, the form won't work (thanks to this plugin), but it will still be displayed.

Does this plugin include unit tests?

Yes.
