    How would I go about having 5 search pages on my site, each of which searches within a different category?

    I know I would use this in my functions.php if I wanted the search functionality on the whole site to only search specific categories.

    function SearchFilter($query) {
    if ($query->is_search) {
    // Insert the specific categories you want to search
    $query->set(‘cat’, ‘8,9,12’);
    return $query;


    Or is the answer to only return or echo the results from certain categories?
