In this post, Pioneer Web Design will show you how to Redirect Search Query in WordPress without a plugin. Steps by step instructions are given.
I was attempting to redirect a search query using the built in search form in WordPress and needed to do some research to get this to work. Attempting on one site, what I thought should work did not! That site uses a theme that adds an action hook to `get_search_query`, (more later) so I just tried on a site that uses the default (child) theme – this one.
