The SearchWP search algorithm is based on a unique SQL query that retrieves results from the SearchWP database tables. You can modify the conditions used in the algorithm using this hook.

Example: To directly manipulate the SQL used for each post type in the main search algorithm, add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

function my_searchwp_query_conditions( $sql, $postType, $engine ) {
// modify $sql to your liking
return $sql;
add_filter( 'searchwp_query_conditions', 'my_searchwp_query_conditions', 10, 3 );
