\SearchWP\Engine

Note: SearchWP Engines are designed to be fully managed by the settings screen.

Direct manipulation of an Engine should be done only when directed by Support.

Table of Contents

\SearchWP\Engines control the parameters used when performing a \SearchWP\Query.

❗️Important❗️ \SearchWP\Engines fully define what content is stored in SearchWP’s Index. As a result, \SearchWP\Engine management should take place on the settings screen. There are limited modifications that can happen at runtime, outlined below.

Arguments

When instantiating a new \SearchWP\Engine the following parameters can be passed:

name (string)
The Engine name. (default: 'default')
settings (array)
Settings. (default: [])

When the $name is that of a saved \SearchWP\Engine it’s settings will be loaded automatically.

When the $settings is empty, a default collections of settings will be used, based on the \SearchWP\Source and \SearchWP\Attribute configurations available.

$settings cannot be directly manipulated programmatically as many changes to the $settings require that the Index be manipulated in some way. SearchWP needs to know about those changes to ensure accuracy of results. That is why \SearchWP\Engine updates must take place on the settings screen unless otherwise directed by Support.

Properties

There are no public properties in \SearchWP\Engine.
