    Hello

    I’m just wondering if it’s possible to remove search results containing restricted content if the person performing the search is not authenticated.

    I found this support article, which indicates yes, you can remove restricted content from search results. However we are using MemberPress, and have Apache Solr as our search backend.

    https://knowledgebase.ajaxsearchpro.com/miscellaneous/post-types/restricting-results-by-user-groups-using-the-groups-plugin-by-itthinx

    In my testing, our search results currently contain content from all pages/posts, regardless of authentication status. Can we use the code snippet from the link above to protect MemberPress-controlled content?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    It should be possible, but a API method is required from the other plugin. The best would be a function that can check if the current user has access to a post by it’s ID.
    Let me know if there is any method in memberpress, and I can help you with the implementation.

    Best,

    He Ernest

    MemberPress support suggested trying MeprRule::is_locked($r)

    function asp_fix_groups_exclusions($results) {
    	// Group based exclusions
    	if ( class_exists('MeprRule') ) {
    		foreach ($results as $k => &$r) {
    			if ( isset($r->post_type) && MeprRule::is_locked($r) )
    				unset($results[$k]);
    		}
    	}
    	return $results;
    }
    add_filter('asp_results', 'asp_fix_groups_exclusions', 10, 1);

    This had no effect, all results were returned to all users. Do you see any issues with the code? This was placed in a child theme’s functions.php.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    That looks almost all right, but the $r variable in that case does not contain a post object, so this should be it:

    add_filter('asp_results', 'asp_fix_groups_exclusions', 10, 1);
    function asp_fix_groups_exclusions($results) {
    	// Group based exclusions
    	if ( class_exists('MeprRule') ) {
    		foreach ($results as $k => &$r) {
    			if ( isset($r->post_type) ) {
    				$post    = get_post( $r->id );
    				if ( MeprRule::is_locked($post) )
    					unset($results[$k]);
    			}
    		}
    	}
    	return $results;
    }
    Best,
    Ernest Marcinko

    Thank you, Ernest. Unfortunately it is still not working. I believe I’ve found a different way to address the issue: multiple ASP search forms, each with different constraints and conditionally displayed based on login status.

    That sounds like a perfect solutions, although I don’t know why the other one does not work, the code seems to be all right.

    Best,
