Nelson Miller Profile Orange
In this tutorial I will show you how to display the Divi search results in the search results page in alphabetical order by title.

▶️ Please watch the video above to get all the exciting details! 👆

Add The PHP Code Snippet

This tutorial is easy, and only requires one step to add the PHP code that works behind the scenes to adjust the output of the search results. This simply involves copying and pasting the PHP code snippet below into your website. There are a number of locations to add this, and it will totally depend on your website and experience.

Where To Paste The PHP Code

1. Divi Assistant
If you are using our Divi Assistant plugin, simply paste the code in the PHP tab in the custom code window in the Divi Visual Builder.

2. Child Theme
If you are using a child theme, paste this code into the functions.php file. If you don't have a child theme, you can generate a child theme directly on your site or download our free child theme.

3. Code Snippet Plugins
Otherwise, install a dedicated code snippet plugin, create a new snippet, and paste this code into the PHP code editor.

If you need help understanding where to paste the code, please check out our complete guide about where to add custom PHP code snippets in Divi.


// show Divi search results in alphabetical order
function pa_alphabetical_search_results( $query ) {
	if( $query->is_search && !is_admin() ) {
		$query->set( 'orderby', 'title' );
		$query->set( 'order', 'ASC' );
add_filter( 'pre_get_posts','pa_alphabetical_search_results' );

Optional: Reverse The Order

If for some reason you want to show the items in the opposite order, you can edit the “ASC” in the code snippet. Simply replace the ASC with DESC the items will show from Z to A.
