WordPress Sphinx Search Plugin
Documentation (1 post)

    I cannot find any documentation for theme authors.

    I'm writing a theme, and I wanted to check if this plugin uses wp_query to work (some search plugins don't.) Since I couldn't find that information, I tried to install the plugin on my computer, since I'm running WAMP. Install failed.

    All I wanted to do was a simple plugin check before returning 'suggested search results' in my theme's 404 page.

    I also couldn't find documentation on whether any code is required to display results from Custom Fields, or code samples for anything like that. What if I want a search form that has an 'exclude' field? Where's the snippet? Doesn't this plugin require theme support?

    This appears to be the only maintained plugin for using Sphinx or Lucene, so the lack of documentation is frustrating. I really wish there were snippets for theme developers somewhere; has anyone seen them?
