Fantastic ElasticSearch

Improve wordpress search performance/accuracy and enable faceted search by leveraging an ElasticSearch server.

This plugin is NOT a simple drop-in, it is expected you have some understanding of what an ElasticSearch server is and how it works. The goals/features of this plugin are:

  • Replace default wordpress search functionality with that of an ElasticSearch server.
  • Ability to specify what data points should be indexed and what the relevancy of those points are.
  • Fall back to default wordpress search if ElasticSearch server is not responsive.
  • Update ElasticSearch server when posts are removed/added/unpublished.
  • Provide a faceting API for building your own custom searches

Please submit bugs or contributions to the github location and not on wordpress' system:


API/filter/faceting documentation can be found on the wiki:
