Broke my WP server
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin made my WordPress server freeze when I tried to activate it.

Having compared Better Search to many other plugins, including premium/paid, I vote for Better Search! Right "out of the box", it offers a very nice layout and little extras like the relevance percentage and results per page switch. But the best feature of all is the actual search engine, returning truly relevant pages.

Had to get in touch with support via the forum, and the developer is very quick to respond.

Does not work on multisite
By , for WP 3.8.2

Well - the search results are better though and the "heatmap" for search results is a nice add on.

But so far this plugin seems not to support multisite installations - so it's completely useless for me.

Relevant Better than Time Based

Much better way to search.
Like the fact it adds rel="bookmark" as well

Does what it says it does
By , for WP 3.5.1

It works! Developer responded promptly to support post. I'd rate it 5 stars if output formatting was nicer/easier.
