WP Search

WPSearch 2 is the missing site search for your WordPress installation. Install this plugin if you need a fast, relevant, google-like search.

Manual Installation

If you are upgrading from a previous version, it is recommended that you rebuild your index after the upgrade.

* Copy the wpsearch folder to the WordPress plugins directory
* Set permissions of the wpsearch directory to 777 (very important!): $ chmod -R 777 wpsearch/*
* Activate wpSearch
* Go to Settings-->WPSearch Options, and click "Build Index"
* Click "Save Changes" and wait until the page reloads (this can take a while depending on the number of posts in your blog)
* Go to your blog's search box and search. Do the results look better? Cool!
