Support » Plugin: ElasticPress » Can ElasicPress index / search custom db tables?

  • Resolved menathor


    Hi guys,

    I’ve been considering going with ElasticPress as the search solution for a new project. However I need to be able to include data from some plugins that use custom db tables. The data isn’t fronted by a custom post type.

    Is this possible with custom code? Of will ElasticPress only work for posts / custom post types?

    Hi @menathor,

    We provide all support for the plugin via Github at

    ElasticPress uses an Indexable class which can be extended to connect any custom table in WordPress to use Elasticsearch. You can take a look at the Post, Term, or User Indexables (which are built into the plugin) for examples. It’s not a small undertaking, however, so keep that in mind.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out via Github to ensure a timely response.
