php – Custom query in posts_search

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

How can I use this query as my custom search query?

add_filter('posts_search', 'my_search_is_perfect', 20, 2);
function my_search_is_perfect($search, $wp_query) 
{
   $sWord = 'Zukunft haus';

   return "
       SELECT *, 
              MATCH(post_title) AGAINST('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AS Score 
        FROM `wp_posts` 
       INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships ON wp_term_relationships.object_id = ID
             AND wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = 1
       WHERE MATCH( post_title) AGAINST ('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) 
         AND `post_status` = 'publish'
         AND `post_type` = 'post'
       ORDER BY score DESC
  "; 
}

The query is correct (I checked this in phpMyAdmin) but in WordPress I get the message, no results.

How to&Answers:

In function.php file:

add_filter('posts_search', 'my_search_is_perfect', 20, 2);
function my_search_is_perfect() 
{
    global $post;
    global $wpdb;
    $sWord = 'Zukunft haus';

    $sel_query = "SELECT *, 
                          MATCH(post_title) AGAINST('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AS Score 
                    FROM ".$wpdb->prefix."posts 
                   INNER JOIN ".$wpdb->prefix."term_relationships ON ".$wpdb->prefix."term_relationships.object_id = ID
                         AND ".$wpdb->prefix."term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = 1
                   WHERE MATCH( post_title) AGAINST ('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) 
                     AND post_status = 'publish'
                     AND post_type = 'post'
                   ORDER BY score DESC";
    $totaldata = $wpdb->get_results($sel_query);

    return $totaldata;
}

Answer:

As suggested by @Gustavo Straube, it would be better to use $wpdb in which case you should implement it like this:

add_filter('posts_search', 'my_search_is_perfect', 20, 2);

function my_search_is_perfect() 
{
    global $wpdb;

    $sWord = 'Zukunft haus';

    $query = "SELECT *, 
                  MATCH(post_title) AGAINST('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AS Score 
            FROM `".$wpdb->prefix."_posts` 
           INNER JOIN ".$wpdb->prefix."_term_relationships ON ".$wpdb->prefix."_term_relationships.object_id = ID
                 AND ".$wpdb->prefix."_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = 1
           WHERE MATCH( post_title) AGAINST ('$sWord' IN BOOLEAN MODE) 
             AND `post_status` = 'publish'
             AND `post_type` = 'post'
           ORDER BY score DESC";

    $myrows = $wpdb->get_results( $query );

    return $myrows;
}

Answer:

Custom queries in wordpress are executed via $wpdb. If you use simply mysql query filters in wordpress may not execute the queries to avoid SQL injections. So use $wpdb to create custom queries.
