    Hi, Can I create a search form with form action to an external website and with “q” search variable? Basically alongside with many custom-post search (that I already succeded) I need to create a search form with the same design that I already use but to get this form search string to an external website (without ajax results at all, just a simple form). Is this possible?
    Any help would appriciated,
    Karls

    PS: I found some settings under logic & behavior but the redirect to custom url is remain locally and just put my url after it, like:
    https://mywebsite.com/https:/externalwebsite.com/search?q=samplestring&asp_active=1&p_asid=7&p_asp_data=1&filters_initial=1&filters_changed=0&qtranslate_lang=0&current_page_id=143

    My desired search url is https://externalwebsite.com/search?q=samplestring

    Hi,

    Sure – not via an option, but a small custom code snippet. This should do the trick:

    add_filter('asp_redirect_url', 'custom_asp_redirect_url', 10, 1);
    function custom_asp_redirect_url($url) {
    	return "https://externalwebsite.com/search?q={phrase}";
    }
    Best,

    Hi,
    Thanks for the quick reply and snippet (inserted into child-theme/funcitons.php) but I’m still getting the above mentioned local url prefix:
    https://mywebsite.com/https:/externalwebsite.com/search?q=samplestring&asp_active=1&p_asid=7&p_asp_data=1&filters_initial=1&filters_changed=0&qtranslate_lang=0&current_page_id=143

    alongside with many url string variables.
    Do I need to change something else in the widget settings?

    Maybe that one will not work, I can’t recall if the javascript does validate agains the current domain. Maybe instead of the previous code, try this one:

    add_action('wp_footer', 'asp_add_footer_script', 9999);
    function asp_add_footer_script() {
    	?>
    	<script>
    	(function($){
    		WPD.Hooks.addFilter('asp_redirect_url', function(url, id, instance){
    			return "https://externalwebsite.com/search?q=" + $('.asp_m_' + id + '_' + instance).find('input.orig').val();
    		}, 10);
    	}(WPD.dom));
    	</script>
    	<?php
    }

    It is a bit more complicated, but it changes the URL right before the submission, so it should be more likely to work.
