<?php
function my_searchwp_limit_to_post_type( $clause, $engine ) {
global $wpdb;
if ( isset( $_GET['post_type'] ) ) {
$post_type = sanitize_text_field( $_GET['post_type'] );
if ( post_type_exists( $post_type ) ) {
$clause = $wpdb->prepare( "AND {$wpdb->prefix}posts.post_type = %s", $post_type );
}
