Support » Plugin: ACF: Better Search » Add getInstance() Function to Objects

  • Resolved Kipperlenny


    I would like to remove a filter your Where Class is adding – but you call do not use the getInstance pattern (many new wordpress Plugins use this!). And you are not assigning the Object to a variable.

    Because of that, it’s not possible to remove_filter().

    Please read this comment:

    And add this to your classes:

        protected static $instance = NULL;
        public static function getInstance() {
            NULL === self::$instance and self::$instance = new self;
            return self::$instance;

    or at least assign the Objects to a variable:

        public function initSearch()
          if (!$this->isSearchAvailable()) return;
          new Join();
          new Query();
          new Request();
          new Where();

    Because otherwise, remove_filter f.e. for

    add_filter('posts_search', [$this, 'sqlWhere'], 0, 2);

    from your Search\Where class is not working in themes functions.php

    I am using now to do this, but it should not be needed anymore today.
