Disable Search

Beschreibung

This plugin prevents WordPress from allowing and handling any search requests from the front-end of the site. Specifically, this plugin:

  • Prevents the search form from appearing if the theme uses the standard get_search_form() function to display the search form.
  • Prevents the search form from appearing if the theme uses a searchform.php template
  • Prevents the search item from appearing in the admin tool bar when shown on the front-end.
  • Disables the search widget.
    • Removes the Search widget from the list of available widgets
    • Deactivates any search widgets currently in use in any sidebars (they are hidden, not deleted; they’ll reappear in their original locations if this plugin gets deactivated)
  • With or without a search form, the plugin prevents any direct or manual requests by visitors, via either GET or POST requests, from actually returning any search results.
  • Submitted attempts at a search will be given a 404 File Not Found response, rendered by your site’s 404.php template, if present.
  • Disables output of SearchAction in SEO schema by the Yoast SEO plugin.

The plugin only affects search on the front-end of the site. It does not disable searching in the admin section of the site.

FAQ

Wird dies die Suchmöglichkeiten im Adminbereich des Blogs deaktivieren?

Nein.

Wird dies Google oder andere Suchmaschinen vom Durchsuchen meiner Website abhalten?

Nein. Dies deaktiviert lediglich die Möglichkeiten von WordPress in Bezug auf die interne Suche.

Search engines index your site and search their index of your site. They do not make use of your site’s native search capabilities. You can only prevent search engines from searching your site by blocking their web crawlers and purging their cache of your site (which is well beyond the scope of this plugin).

Warum sehe ich immer noch ein Suchformular auf meiner Website, obwohl das Plugin aktiviert ist?

The most likely cause for this is a theme that has the markup for the search form hardcoded into one or more of the theme’s template files (excluding searchform.php). This is generally frowned upon nowadays (the theme should be calling get_search_form() or using searchform.php to get the search form). There is no way for this plugin to prevent this hardcoded form from being displayed.

Auch wenn dies der Fall ist, wird das Formular (dank dieses Plugin) nicht funktionieren, es wird lediglich noch angezeigt.

Can the front-end search only be selectively disabled, allowing it to appear and work under certain conditions (such as only for logged-in users, etc)?

No, not at this time, though it is feature being considered. (In truth, custom coding could certainly be used to achieve this, but that obviously requires coding knowledge.)

Is this plugin GDPR-compliant?

Yes. This plugin does not collect, store, or disseminate any information from any users or site visitors.

Enthält dieses Plugin Unit-Tests?

Ja.
