    Hi,
    looking at the settings I don’t think this is currently possible, but it would be interesting to have an option to auto-filter the search results dynamically depending on the category / tag of the visited post.
    This could be used to show a “related posts” module for instance.

    Is this something you plan to add in the future?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    This is already possible via the plugin API, check this knowledge base.

    So after customizing this code in placing it in function.php, then I create a custom search form. But how do I tell this form to use the provided code to only search in the same taxonomy as the visited page?
    This last step is not clear to me, sorry.

    By default the code applies to all search bars. If you only need to apply to a specific search ID, then you can use the $sear_id variable to compare, like this:

    add_filter( 'asp_query_args', 'asp_posts_from_same_cat', 10, 2 );
    function asp_posts_from_same_cat($args, $search_id) {
    	if ( $search_id == 1 ) {
    		$taxonomy = 'category'; // Enter the taxonomy name
    
    		// Do not change anything below
    		$categories = wp_get_post_terms( $args['_page_id'], $taxonomy, array('fields' => 'ids') );
    		if ( !is_wp_error($categories) && count($categories) ) {
    			$args['post_tax_filter'][] = array(
    			  'taxonomy'  => $taxonomy,    // taxonomy name
    			  'include'   => $categories,   // array of taxonomy term IDs to include
    			  'exclude'   => array(),
    			  'allow_empty' => false        // allow (empty) items with no connection to any of the taxonomy terms filter
    			);
    		}
    	}
    	return $args;
    }

    In this case the code will apply for the search ID=1, and for the category taxonomy.
