    Hey there,

    short question. When I create a membership area on my page with a plugin and I want only the logged in member to find some results but not the normal user…how can I do that in ajax search pro?

    Im looking for a “show only when logged in” option for the search results.

    Thank you!

    Hi!

    Well, there is no such option, but there is a programmatical way to exclude posts/pages/other cpt by their IDs, when the user is not logged in.

    Try adding this code to the functions.php file in your theme/child theme directory – make sure to have a full server back-up first for safety. For more details you can check the safe coding guidelines.

    You can add the unwanted post IDs to the $ids array variable.

    add_filter( 'asp_query_args', 'asp_exclude_only_post_ids', 10, 2 );
    function asp_exclude_only_post_ids( $args, $id ) {
      /**
       * Array of post IDs to exclude for non-logged in users
       */     
      $ids = array(1, 2, 3);
      
      // -- !! Do not change anything below this line !! --
      if ( !is_user_logged_in() ) {
    	$args['post_not_in'] = array_merge($args['post_not_in'], $ids);
      }
    
      return $args;
    }

    Hello Ernest,

    thank you for your quick answer. I tried it and added the IDs of the product categories in the $ids array.
    Then I recreated the index.

    Does this only work with posts or also with CPTs and custom Taxonomies?
    In the live search there are still those results when I am not logged in.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Dominik,

    This only works with custom post types. If you want to exclude taxonomy term results, use this variation instead:

    add_filter( 'asp_query_args', 'asp_exclude_only_post_ids', 10, 2 );
    function asp_exclude_only_post_ids( $args, $id ) {
      /**
       * Array of post IDs to exclude for non-logged in users
       */     
      $post_type_ids = array(1, 2, 3);
      
      /**
       * Array of term IDss to exclude for non-logged in users
       */     
      $tax_term_ids = array(1, 2, 3);
      
      // -- !! Do not change anything below this line !! --
      if ( !is_user_logged_in() ) {
    	$args['post_not_in'] = array_merge($args['post_not_in'], $post_type_ids);
    	$args['taxonomy_terms_exclude'] = array_merge($args['taxonomy_terms_exclude'], $tax_term_ids);
      }
    
      return $args;
    }

    Ah ok, it worked with the normal CPT post. Taxonomy is still weird.

    But for now, this is good for me.
    Thank you!!
