Support » Plugin: Relevanssi - A Better Search » Able to see indexed pages?

  • Is it possible to see what the indexed pages look like? I currently have a directory which has a custom post type along with a list of taxonomy values attached to each post. I have a feeling that the plugin is only scanning inside the post content and not anything else. I currently have all the information pulled in the php theme files, not via shortcodes in the editor.

    For example, this is a page that is indexed but when I search for “net 15” (no quotes) it doesn’t highlight the net 15 on the search result page, rather it highlights the net in network even though there’s an exact match further down the page

    You have to set up Relevanssi to read the taxonomy values, it doesn’t read them by default. However, once you set it up to index the correct taxonomies, it should work with no problems.

    Also notice that by default Relevanssi only indexes words that are three letters or more.

    I have it set to read taxonomies values, under “Custom taxonomies to index:” right? I put in a list my taxonomies, separated by commas. Still does not seem to trigger.

    Also, how does fuzzy match work? If someone searches for appwall would the phrase “app wall” get triggered?

    Yes, you need to list the taxonomies there, and re-index the database.

    The way fuzzy matching works is that if someone searches for “relevans”, it’ll find “relevanssi”. Searching for “appwall” doesn’t find “app wall”, because that’s just too complicated (Relevanssi would have to try adding spaces between every letters, when now it just adds wildcards to the beginning and the end).

    However, you can use the synonym feature to make “app wall” a synonym for “appwall”.
