Great plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

Simple and useful. It just works. Does the highlights. I dropped Relevanssi because it stopped doing highlights for some reason and found this one. Tested it. Boom.

Thank you.

**UPDATED REVIEW DUE TO MIS-UNDERSTANDING REGARDING PLUG-IN FEATURES**
If you're trying to scan the actual content of attached files (like pdfs) please read suggestions in review comments! Thanks!

**Original Review**
WordPress Version: 8.1
Theme - Pagelines 2.4.4
Custom Post Types by: Toolset - Types
Files Attached posts: pdfs

Set options to search everything except comments - did not return any results for items from custom fields/pdfs that weren't already being found by regular wordpress built-in search/types/views settings for archives.

Looked through support forum, plugin reviews across the web, etc., and never did find anything to explain why it wasn't working or what to do to get it to work.

If any suggestions to tweak settings, happy to try them and update this review if it starts working, but at this time, no go.

It's working well!
By , for WP 3.8.1

It's searching well through tags, it's not eating resources while searching, page load time it's not increasing while it's activated (like others). Good job !
