Run advanced searches via the WordPress REST API and SearchWP.
Adds an endpoint to the WordPress REST API for searching via SearchWP — the best tool for improving the usefulness and performance of WordPress search.
This plugin is a free plugin by CalderaWP. It is not an official add-on for SearchWP.
- Requires WordPress REST API (WP-API) 2.0-beta9 or later or WordPress 4.4 or later.
- Requires SearchWP Version 2.6 or later
Technically will work without SearchWP, but queries will run through WP_Query.
For a complete list of possible queries, see: https://calderawp.com/doc/searchwp-api-queries/
Does It Work With Version 1 of The REST API?
No, it does not.
I Installed It And Nothing Happened
You are probably using version 1 of the REST API, or have not updated SearchWP past 2.6.
