View Parameters »

You can exclude specific post IDs on the SearchWP settings screen, but if you’d like to exclude post IDs programmatically you can do that with this filter.

Example: If you want to exclude a single a single post, add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

<?php
function my_searchwp_exclude( $ids, $engine, $terms )
{
$ids[] = 78; // forcefully exclude post 78
return $ids;
}
add_filter( 'searchwp_exclude', 'my_searchwp_exclude', 10, 3 );

You can also retrieve post IDs dynamically and return those programmatically.

Example: If you want to exclude posts flagged with a taxonomy term, add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

<?php
function my_searchwp_exclude( $ids, $engine, $terms ) {
$entries_to_exclude = get_posts(
array(
'post_type' => 'any',
'nopaging' => true,
'fields' => 'ids',
'tax_query' => array(
array(
'taxonomy' => 'category',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => array( 'category-1' ),
),
),
)
);
$ids = array_unique( array_merge( $ids, array_map( 'absint', $entries_to_exclude ) ) );
return $ids;
}
add_filter( 'searchwp_exclude', 'my_searchwp_exclude', 10, 3 );

Example: If you want to exclude an entire bbPress Forum, it’s Topics, and all Replies to those Topics add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

// exclude anything to do with Forum ID 133643 from search results in SearchWP
function my_exclude_private_bbpress_forum_and_children( $ids, $engine, $terms ) {
$forum_id = 133643;
// exclude Topics from that Forum
$topic_args = array(
'post_type' => 'topic',
'posts_per_page' => -1,
'fields' => 'ids',
'post_parent' => $forum_id,
'suppress_filters' => true,
);
$topic_ids = new WP_Query( $topic_args );
$topic_ids = $topic_ids->posts;
// if there are no posts we get array( 0 => '0' ) back
if ( 1 == count( $topic_ids ) && $topic_ids[0] == 0 ) {
$topic_ids = array();
}
// exclude Replies to those Topics
$reply_args = array(
'post_type' => 'reply',
'posts_per_page' => -1,
'fields' => 'ids',
'post_parent__in' => $topic_ids,
'suppress_filters' => true,
);
$reply_ids = new WP_Query( $reply_args );
$reply_ids = $reply_ids->posts;
// if there are no posts we get array( 0 => '0' ) back
if ( 1 == count( $reply_ids ) && $reply_ids[0] == 0 ) {
$reply_ids = array();
}
$ids = array_merge( $ids, array( $forum_id ), $topic_ids, $reply_ids );
