This extension provides Shortcodes that generate both search forms and results pages for SearchWP search engines. It’s useful if you’re not comfortable (or able) to edit theme files directly to implement your search form(s) and results loops.

After activating Shortcodes, the following will be available to you:

Shortcode Attribute(s)
searchwp_search_form
Outputs a search form for a specific search engine
target — The form action (Default is the existing permalink)
engine — Search engine name (Default is default)
var — The search query variable name (Default is swpquery)
button_text — Form button text (Default is Search)
searchwp_search_results
Outputs the list of search results once a search has been submitted
engine — Search engine name (Default is default)
posts_per_page — How many posts per page to display Note that this is not a self-closing Shortcode, the markup for each search result should be nested inside, see sample below for example
var — The search query variable name (Default is swpquery)
searchwp_search_result_link
Outputs a link to the current search result
direct — Either “true” or “false”, when true link directly to the permalink, if it’s an attachment link directly to it’s URL, not the parent page
searchwp_search_result_excerpt
Outputs the excerpt for the current search result
None
searchwp_search_results_none
Output if no search results were found
NoneNote that this is not a self-closing Shortcode, the markup for each search result should be nested inside, see sample below for example
searchwp_search_results_pagination
Output pagination of search results
engine — Search engine name (Default is default)
direction — Either “prev” or “next”
link_text — The text to use in the link
var — The search query variable name (Default is swpquery)

Here is a sample of a comprehensive implementation of Shortcodes that searches a supplemental engine with a name of my_test_engine :

<h3>Search Form</h3>
[searchwp_search_form engine="my_test_engine" target="http://example.com/supplemental-search/" var="searchvar" button_text="Find Results"]
<div class="search-results-wrapper">
[searchwp_search_results engine="my_test_engine" var="searchvar" posts_per_page=2]
<h2>[searchwp_search_result_link direct="true"]</h2>
[searchwp_search_result_excerpt]
[/searchwp_search_results]
</div>
<div class="no-search-results-found">
[searchwp_search_results_none]
No results found, please search again.
[/searchwp_search_results_none]
</div>
<div class="search-results-pagination">
[searchwp_search_results_pagination direction="prev" link_text="Previous" var="searchvar" engine="my_test_engine"]
[searchwp_search_results_pagination direction="next" link_text="Next" var="searchvar" engine="my_test_engine"]
