View Parameters »

If you would like to change the submitted search terms before they are sent to the search algorithm, use this filter.

Note: This filter is applied after term sanitization has taken place, unlike searchwp_terms.

Example: To alter the search terms submitted to the search algorithm, add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

function my_searchwp_pre_search_terms( $terms, $engine ) {
if ( 'myengine' == $engine ) {
// do something with the terms
return $terms;
add_filter( 'searchwp_pre_search_terms', 'my_searchwp_pre_search_terms', 10, 2 );
