Limit post types in Search module results

By default, the Search module searches pages, posts, and any custom post types that exist. You can limit the search to specific post types with some custom code. For example, you could search the WooCommerce product post type only.

The code varies according to whether or not AJAX is enabled on your site.

AJAX enabled

Set a filter that uses fl_builder_loop_query_args to specify which post types are allowed in search.

In the following code example, post and product are specified in the array as the post types to search. Add your code to functions.php in your child theme.

add_filter( 'fl_builder_loop_query_args', function( $args ){
if ( isset( $args['s'] ) ) {
$args['post_type'] = array( 'post', 'product' );
return $args;

The code affects all Search modules on your site.

AJAX disabled

If AJAX is disabled, use pre_get_posts instead. See this WordPress documentation.
