Easy Digital Downloads Search Widget

This Plugin adds a search widget for the Easy Digital Downloads plugin post type independent from the regular WordPress search.

Nice Little Helper Tool for EDD :-)

This small and lightweight plugin is pretty much like the regular WordPress search widget but limited to only search the post type of the new and awesome Easy Digital Downloads plugin: Downloads.

Just drag the widget to your favorite widget area and enjoy finally to have Downloads-limited search function for your Easy Digital Downloads install ;-).

Since v1.1.0 you can also use the Shortcode [edd-searchbox]. Futher, the plugin is also fully Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it if ever needed (per site use is recommended).


  • Improved search results display for themes and (EDD) "Downloads" post type detection/ restriction.
  • Optional widget display options for faster setup.
  • Two - fully optional - text fields: "Intro text" and "Outro text" to display for example additional Downloads or user instructions. Just leave blank to not use them!
  • Shortcode [edd-searchbox] to have (EDD) "Downloads" specific search box anywhere Shortcodes are supported. (See FAQ here for the supported parameters.)
  • Lots of filter hooks & action hooks throughout the plugin, making it even more flexible and developer friendly
  • Fully WPML compatible!
  • Fully Multisite compatible, you can also network-enable it if ever needed (per site use is recommended).
  • Tested with WordPress branches: 3.5, plus upcoming 3.6, as well as with older branches 3.3 and 3.4 - also in debug mode (no stuff there, ok? :)
