S&P Search by File Type

Description

Break your search up by file types. Implements methods for separating searches by type [post|video|audio|image]

todo: * restrict results to status = ‘published’

Installation

Install

  1. Unzip the sp-search-by-file-type.zip file.
  2. Upload the the sp-search-by-file-type folder (not just the files in it!) to your wp-contents/plugins folder. If you’re using FTP, use ‘binary’ mode.

Activate

  1. In your WordPress administration, go to the Plugins page

Implement

To use this plugin, add links in your search/tags/categories/etc loops that set the type so as to filter the list.

Usage: http://someurl/?type=[post|video|audio|image]

Tab Example:

<ul class="search_filters">     <li><a href="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>?s=<? echo $_GET['s'] ?>">All</a></li>     <li><a href="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>?s=<? echo $_GET['s'] ?>&type=post">Posts</a></li>     <li><a href="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>?s=<? echo $_GET['s'] ?>&type=image">Images</a></li>     <li><a href="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>?s=<? echo $_GET['s'] ?>&type=video">Videos</a></li>     <li><a href="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>?s=<? echo $_GET['s'] ?>&type=audio">Audio</a></li> </ul> 

get_type($id) can be used within the loop to detect the post mime type.

If you find any bugs or have any ideas, please mail us.

sp_search($type) can be used before query_posts() to restrict results within a template. Example:

sp_search('video'); query_posts(); if (have_posts()) : // internal loop here endif;
