I am using this plugin in conjuction with another plugin, Force Login (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-force-login/). Essentially, this plugin blocks users from all pages/ posts if they are not logged. You can add pages/ posts to a whitelist that will allow the public to view the page/post.
They problem that I am facing is that my home page is open for the public to view, but the search bar doesn’t work because it is blocked by the force login plugin. When I start typing in the search bar, the results don’t drop down because it wants me to login. Is there a way to whitelist the results from the search bar?
