  • Hi
    Does Relevanssi search in the product description ? I am not getting results for words in the description. If Relevanssi does search in the product description, what settings do I need to adjust for this to work ?

    Yes. The product description is actually the post excerpt, so if you make Relevanssi index the post excerpts, it should get the product description.

    Oh…. the Index the post excerpt specifies it is for the product short description, not the regular product description – I will check that out then.

    You might want to change the wording on the settings screen so it is more clear if it is for both descriptions – short and long:
    This is what it says
    WooCommerce stores the product short description in the excerpt, so it’s a good idea to index excerpts.

    Thanks !

    Long description is just the post content and Relevanssi always indexes that unless you specifically prevent it.

    If you’re not getting results for long product description, make sure you’re not searching for stopwords. Also, make sure your post content is in a format Relevanssi can see (some page builders hide post content from Relevanssi, for example). A concrete example of a search that doesn’t work is also helpful.
