Empty search shows home page on wordpress

OK, so you have a site. It’s not set up like a blog, so you don’t have a blog or posts page. You notice that submitting the search form with nothing in it sends you to a broken home page. There are all sorts of madnesses touted to fix this involving modifying the core wordpress code, which is a terrible idea given how often it updates. stick this in your functions and ┬ípresto pronto! all better. This will just send you to your search page and show everything with a space in it.. add_filter( ‘request’, ‘my_request_filter’ ); function my_request_filter( $query_vars ) { if( isset( $_GET[‘s’] ) && empty( $_GET[‘s’] ) ) { $query_vars[‘s’] = ” “; } return $query_vars; }
