Exclude Listings from Link Search

When you make a link in the WordPress editor, a link search tool pops up allowing you to search your content. By default it searches all public post types. On a project we had a lot of property listings which made link searching difficult. The code below excludes the ‘listing’ post type from that link search.

function be_exclude_listings_from_link_search( $query ) {
$query['post_type'] = array_diff( $query['post_type'], array( 'listing' ) );
return $query;
add_filter( 'wp_link_query_args', 'be_exclude_listings_from_link_search' );
