Relevanssi - A Better Search

Relevanssi replaces the default search with a partial-match search that sorts results by relevance. It also indexes comments and shortcode content.

The only Search plugin that really works.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I tried several plugins which claim to work (including Better Search and Search Everything), but this is the only one which does ALL of the following:

  1. respects your theme's stylesheet and templates
  2. allows display of excerpts instead of full posts
  3. offers highlighting of search terms
  4. displays results either by relevance or the default dates

And much, much more.

Thank you for such a reliable, robust and usable plugin.

I like WP total Cache and this plugin, but a friend says this one is better. I personaly dont see any difference in most scenarios, but working for http://www.antorchadeportiva.com, I really liked the results.

Don't search without it

I didn't realize how awesome this plugin was until I deactivated it. It speeds up searches and gives much better results compared with WP's core search.

Easy install and works great
By , for WP 3.8.3

I had been looking on and off for a plugin that would actually search my entire site and give back relevant results. I found a review of this plugin on another site and decided to try this after 2 others were relatively much more complicated.

I have an e-commerce site and social network. I needed to find search results for posts and products. Initially, the set up for indexing stopped and would not complete. In the notes, I found that there may be a problem with plugins that use shortcodes. After deactivating the plugins, and re-indexing, Relevanssi completed successfully. Then, I simply used the WordPress search widget and I was in business. I tested Relevanssi and I got the results that I was looking for.

I can't thank you enough!!!

Wow!!! Works Wonders with WooCommerce!
By , for WP 3.8.3

We were distraught because we couldn't figure out a way to get our site's search feature to search through WooCommerce's product attributes (sku, custom attributes, description, etc.). But then I found Relevanssi and in a matter of minutes had everything up and running beautifully!

I can't believe that the default WP search is so bad.
I can't believe that Relevanssi is so awesome.

And they're the same price.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

This plugin is off the charts.
By , for WP 3.8.1

I love it. The fact that I can go in and tell it to include my custom post types makes me very, very happy.

Great plugin...if you need WordPress search, this is the ticket.

Thank you!

I love this program! So easy and it works great.

The default WordPress search was killing me. Was in the processes of creating a directory and needed a search that I could customize to only search custom taxonomies and one that can actually dig through the content and titles and formulate a decent result. Relevanssi is a fantastic plugin and it does all this effortlessly. I use it on all my sites. Can't ask for more, especially considering it's free. If you need a better search, Relevanssi is for you.
