Hi again!

If I understand correctly, then you only want to show results, that were created by the current logged in users?
This is only possible by modifying the search source or creating a filtering function. Try to add this code anywhere to your theme functions.php file:

add_filter( 'asp_pagepost_results', 'asp_filter_the_post_author', 1, 1 );
 
function asp_filter_the_post_author( $pageposts ) {
  foreach ($pageposts as $k=>$v) {
    global $current_user;
    get_currentuserinfo();

    $user = get_user_by( 'id', $current_user->ID );
 
    // Get the user nicename 
    $author = $user->data->user_nicename;              
 
    // Remove the post from the array if the author is not the logged in user
    if ($pageposts[$k]->author != $author)
      unset($pageposts[$k]);
  }
 
  return $pageposts;
}
Best,
