Filter posts types from search results

I have worked on a few project where pages or a custom post type is not something that I want to show up in the search results. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your WordPress theme will let you set what posts types are included when you search your WordPress site. $query->set('post_type', array('post','CUSTOMTYPE')); This sample will only search posts and a custom post type called CUSTOMTYPE you will of course want to change that to something appropriate but you get the idea.

function filter_post_type($query) {
    if ($query->is_search) {
        $query->set('post_type', array('post','CUSTOMTYPE'));
    return $query;
