searchwp_return_orderby_date

View Parameters »

SearchWP was designed to be a relevance-based, keyword weighted search engine. By default returned results are based on a combination of relevance (determined by SearchWP) and keyword weight (determined by you via the settings) but there may be times where you want to use SearchWP’s intelligence to retrieve a results pool but have the returned results ordered by date. Using this hook you can make that happen.

Example: to have results from all search engines ordered by date, add the following to your theme’s functions.php:

<?php
// ALWAYS return search results ordered by date
add_filter( 'searchwp_return_orderby_date', '__return_true' );

Example: to conditionally return results ordered by date depending on search engine name, add the following to your theme’s functions.php:

<?php
function my_searchwp_return_orderby_date( $order_by_date, $engine ) {
// for the Default engine (only!) we want to return search results by date
if ( 'default' == $engine ) {
$order_by_date = true;
}
return $order_by_date;
}
add_filter( 'searchwp_return_orderby_date', 'my_searchwp_return_orderby_date', 10, 2 );
