View Parameters »

When SearchWP builds an engine configuration it checks to see what features are supported by each available post type. If you’d like to override this behavior you can use this hook to do so.

Example: to prevent SearchWP from making Excerpts available for Posts, add the following to your theme’s functions.php:

// Prevent SearchWP from allowing an Excerpt weight for Posts on the settings screen
add_filter( 'searchwp_get_supports_for_post_type', function( $applicable, $context ) {
if ( 'post' === $context['post_type'] && 'excerpt' === $context['supports'] ) {
$applicable = false;
return $applicable;
}, 10, 2 );
