[Resolved] Limit post per search page

  • I found this code that lets you limit the number of post in the categories, I wonder if you can do the same but for the search results.

    for categories:

    function limit_posts_per_page() {
    	if ( is_category() )
    		return 2;
    	else
    		return 5; // default: 5 posts per page
    }
    add_filter('pre_option_posts_per_page', 'limit_posts_per_page');

    for archive page:

    function limit_posts_per_archive_page() {
    	if ( is_category() )
    		set_query_var('posts_per_archive_page', 2); // or use variable key: posts_per_page
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_per_archive_page');

  • Just change is_category() to is_search(), works for most conditional tags.

    btw, better to use the 2nd method.

    For the categories runs smoothly but when replaced by is_search () the site stops working and the screen is blank .. I did something wrong?

    function limit_posts_per_archive_page() {
    	if ( is_search() )
    		set_query_var('posts_per_archive_page', 10); // or use variable key: posts_per_page
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_per_archive_page');

    Did u use same name function? If yes, merge into a single function. Example:

    function limit_posts_per_archive_page() {
    	if ( is_category() )
    		$limit = 2;
    	elseif ( is_search() )
    		$limit = 1;
    	else
    		$limit = get_option('posts_per_page');
    
    	set_query_var('posts_per_archive_page', $limit);
    }
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_per_archive_page');

    Perfect! Has been a great help for me, I really thank you very much.

    Greetings Zeo!

    I am somehow unable to get this work. I tried with Safirul Alredha’s code on WP 3.1
