Spectacu.la Advanced Search

Changes the WordPress search queries to provide more relevant results more efficiently and with options to influence the results.

This plug-in provides you with more relevant search results than are currently available to the normal WordPress search and it should also do so with less of a performance hit on the db than the normal WordPress search. We use the MySQL commands MATCH () AGAINST () as opposed to WordPress’ use of LIKE to do our queries which are not as heavy on the db. The only issue we have with “match against” is that we need an index on the columns we intend to search on.
