Search Light
Search Order by Relevance? (3 posts)

    I love the instant search function of this plugin, but the relevance of the search results are terrible. Any way to have the results sorted by relevance, with heavy weight given to the post / page title, rather than sorting by date? I have another plugin that does that for the WP search results, but it doesn't affect the Search Light plugin.

    thanks,
    Mike

    Incidentally, I just edited all of my pages to have the same publish date & time, thinking maybe then the results would be sorted by relevance. Nope. The results seem totally random. If I search my site for the word "Midtown", Search Light doesn't even show my page that's actually titled "Midtown"! Argh! Any way to hack this so it searches by page title only?

    thanks,
    Mike

    Nevermind, Dave's WordPress Live Search now works in concert with the Relevanssi plugin. Works great!
