Using Sessions and Transients to Remember and Traverse Search Results

Searching through a haystack of posts to find one needle is a daunting task. Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily traverse between search results from within the post itself?

In this presentation, we learn how Sessions provide us with a way to have unique data for the current visitor, and Transients help us temporarily store data. Together, they can make those Next and Previous links relevant after a search.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to temporarily store search results
  • To navigate search results with next and previous post links
  • Resources you need to get started
  • Demo on using Sessions and Transients
