Many times you want a different number of posts per search results page. Further, you may want to customize that number per search engine. This filter allows you to customize how many results are returned for all search results pages.

Example: If you want to force 20 results per page for all supplemental search engines, add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

function my_searchwp_posts_per_page( $posts_per_page, $engine, $terms, $page )
if( $engine != 'default' ) {
// if this is a supplemental search engine, show 20 results per page
return 20;
} else {
// it's the default search engine, return whatever it was originally
return $posts_per_page;
add_filter( 'searchwp_posts_per_page', 'my_searchwp_posts_per_page', 30, 4 );
