I am trying to retrieve search results from one multi-site site ("Staffsite" - id:
2) and display them alongside the search results on another site that's part of the multi-site setup ("Flagship" - id:
1). I currently have the following code in
search.php on Flagship:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'staff', 's' => get_search_query(), ); switch_to_blog( 2 ); // switch to Staffsite $staffsite_query = new WP_Query( $args ); var_dump( $staffsite_query->post_count ); // 0 // Do something with post data restore_current_blog(); // return to Flagship
The query works as expected when used in a template on Staffsite (replacing
get_search_query() with an actual value), returning all the relevant posts, but does not work when used from a template on Flagship in combination with
For what reason does this not work?
