Support » Plugin: Better Search » Exclude a search form from Better Search?

  • I would like to make a custom search form that only searches one post type, but Better Search overrides any custom search forms I create. Is there a way to exclude a particular search form from using Better Search’s functionality?

    Actually it doesn’t have to do with search forms but the search functionality which calls Better Search automatically.

    How are you building your search form? One option is to use a custom search template and a WP_Query in the search template to produce those search results.

    I’ve created my own search form using get_search_query(). I was trying to restrict it to posts only by using pre_get_posts but I couldn’t get it to work. I suppose I can build it completely from scratch and not use get_search_query(). Is that what you suggest?

    I use this in my other plugin that uses a custom post type but I think can apply for others:

    You would need to create a custom template within your theme which should, in theory, work.
