In the logs of slow queries when searching for steel, the following types of logs appear:

FROM wp_posts  
WHERE 1=1  
AND (((wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE '%donald%') OR (wp_posts.post_excerpt 
LIKE '%donald%') OR (wp_posts.post_content 
LIKE ‘%donald%’)) AND ((wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE '%trump%') OR (wp_posts.post_excerpt 
LIKE ‘%trump%’) OR (wp_posts.post_content 
LIKE '%trump%')))  
AND wp_posts.post_type 
IN ('post', 'page', 'attachment') 
AND (wp_posts.post_status = 'publish' 
OR wp_posts.post_status = 'acf-disabled' 
OR wp_posts.post_author = 186 
AND wp_posts.post_status = 'private')  
ORDER BY (CASE WHEN wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE ‘%donald trump%' THEN 1 WHEN wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE ‘%donald%’ AND wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE '%trump%' THEN 2 WHEN wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE '%donald%' OR wp_posts.post_title 
LIKE '%trump%' THEN 3 WHEN wp_posts.post_excerpt 
LIKE '%donald trump%' THEN 4 WHEN wp_posts.post_content
LIKE '%donald trump%' THEN 5 ELSE 6 END), 
wp_posts.post_date DESC LIMIT 0, 30;

How can I eliminate it?

Is this related to the "no_found_rows" arg for \WP_Query for exemple ?

Replying to MaximeCulea:

This happens when I search for links (when I want to link to a post) or search for a photo by media gallery

SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS is used in most queries in order to implement pagination, even when you don’t need pagination at all. It tells to MySQL to do additional work for counting the total matching rows.

Inside \WP_Query and get_posts() it is done with the arg no_found_rows => false. So if you set it to true, it will improve your query speed.

Unfortunately my knowledge of wordpress is not very great, I will be very grateful if you tell me how to implement what you wrote
