Show search results with language specific slug while running Polylang

The snippet

When using the search widget in Elementor in conjunction with Polylang, once you search, the slug does not contain the language code. Here’s a nifty solution that let’s you fix this.

					add_action('elementor/widget/render_content', function($content, $widget) {
    if ($widget->get_name() == 'search-form' && function_exists('PLL')) {
        $dom = new DomDocument;
        $nodes = $dom->getElementsByTagName('form');
        $node = $nodes[0];
        $node->setAttribute('action', PLL()->curlang->search_url);
        $content = $dom->saveHTML($node);
    return $content;
 }, 10, 2);

Credits go to maryisdead for figuring this out, it can be such a life saver that I wanted to share this!
