    Is it possible to pull in non WordPress post data into the search?
    For example I have a third party plugin which saves data in custom tables. Are there any options to pulling this into the search? I can write mysql queries to get data if need be. I’ve looked at this https://documentation.ajaxsearchpro.com/plugin-api/asp_query_args-filter but that won’t work with custom tables (I think!?).
    Oh, maybe using this filter: ‘asp_results’? Can I add to the results there?

    Also what would be a good filter/hook for custom grouping and layout of returned results? Say I want to pull specific results to the top of what is returned, display them differently, etc.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi,

    For this purpose use the asp_results filter instead. This example could be a good starter: https://wp-dreams.com/knowledge-base/custom-fields-in-result-titles/

    Creating custom groups at the moment is unfortunately not possible. You can however change the result group by checking the $r->g_content_type property, that sets the group name for each result.

    Best,
