SearchWP API

Description

Run advanced searches via the WordPress REST API and SearchWP.

Adds an endpoint to the WordPress REST API for searching via SearchWP — the best tool for improving the usefulness and performance of WordPress search.

This plugin is a free plugin by CalderaWP. It is not an official add-on for SearchWP.

  • Requires WordPress REST API (WP-API) 2.0-beta9 or later or WordPress 4.4 or later.
  • Requires SearchWP Version 2.6 or later

Technically will work without SearchWP, but queries will run through WP_Query.

Example Queries

For a complete list of possible queries, see: https://calderawp.com/doc/searchwp-api-queries/
* wp-json/swp_api/search?s=jedi&egnine=star-wars
* wp-json/swp_api/search?&tax_query[field]=slug&tax_query[taxonomy]=categories&tax_query[terms]=1
* wp-json/swp_api/search?meta_query[key]=jedi&meta_query[value]=luke&tax_query[compare]=IN

Does It Work With Version 1 of The REST API?

No, it does not.

I Installed It And Nothing Happened

You are probably using version 1 of the REST API, or have not updated SearchWP past 2.6.

How Shiny Is This Plugin?

Very shiny.
