    Hi,

    Not really sure if this question is related to the plugin but I’m looking for a way / conditional statement to check if a search result is a taxonomy archive link.

    It seems like there isn’t such a conditional statement within WordPress Core as is_tax() only checks if the current page is a taxonomy archive page. This might be related to the issue that taxonomy archive pages can’t be searched / shown as result with the default WordPress search.

    I’ve searched the Ajax Search Pro documentation but didn’t find the answer there. I found the asp_query_args filter but that filter changes the query and is not related to they way results are shown.

    It there any way to check if a search result is a taxonomy archive page on the search results page (search.php)?

    Kind regards,
    Niels Pilon

    Hi Niels,

    Well, you cannot check that via WordPress core functions, as all of those items there are “mimiced” as post types, since the results page is built for that.

    There might be a way though, via using the get_asp_result_field() function in there. Try:

    if ( get_asp_result_field('content_type') == 'term' ) {

    The “content_type” field should contain the result type – in this case you are looking for “term”, that represents taxonomy terms (taxonomy archive links).

    Hi Ernest,

    Thanks for your quick reply which solved the issue!

    Can the function also be changed to check for a specific taxonomy term as it looks like it will be used for all terms…?

    Kind regards,
    Niels

    Hi,

    Well, it should return the taxonomy, if defined:

    get_asp_result_field('taxonomy')

    ..as well as the term ID, if needed:

    get_asp_result_field('id')
