Search Everything increases WordPress' default search functionality in three easy steps.
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.
Down loaded it,, and didn't see any widget or anything to add to my site or web page for customers to search.. NO instructions.. WHERE IS THE SEARCH BOX
This plugin is very helpful for my blogs using custom fields.
Saved so much of time.Thanks a lot
Thanks so much exactly what I needed :)
and saved lots of time
**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!
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 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 !
