    I can find the post when searching for “aperityvas” so Relevanssi is able to index the post.

    Looks like you’re using Divi and their page builder. It seems to me other posts are not found by their content either, and the list of keywords for Autocomplete for Relevanssi that appears on your page source code is very short – looks like Relevanssi is only indexing the titles of the pages.

    How do your posts look like on the edit screen? Is the article text just straight up in the post content, or do you have something more complicated page builder content there?

    It’s possible Divi is hiding the content from Relevanssi. Try making Relevanssi index all custom fields and rebuild the index. Does that help?

    Good morning and thank you for your response!

    To be honest, most of my websites are Divi based and I do not have such problems there.

    Also, the statement, that content is not indexed is not entirely correct, you can try searching “Costa Smeralda” to find the keyword used in content.

    Thank you for your suggestions, I will run these tests now and get back with results.

    Basically, I selected to index everything and the problem no longer exists so I will re-index a few times after reducing the index scope until the problem comes up again to find what exactly is causing this.

    Sorry to bother you, I should have done more tests before posting here. But since I have you reading this now, I want to thank you sincerely for this excellent plugin. It is the best search plugin that I have ever seen and I’m recommending it to all of my clients and partners.

    P.S. last time I posted about fuzzy search not being fuzzy enough so I came up with a solution which works great for me. Instead of using the standard “did you mean” suggestion I’ve added a SOUNDEX() query to suggest corrections based on the index term table. I can already see more user engagement on the website!

    If you like Relevanssi, reviewing it on WordPress.org helps other find out about it.

    Were you perhaps missing the shortcode expansion setting in indexing? If the content is being added to the page with shortcodes, that needs to be enabled in order for Relevanssi to see the content.

    What you’re doing with the Did you mean suggestions is similar to what Premium does, and that definitely works much better than the Did you mean suggestions in the free version. The difference is that Premium doesn’t use Soundex but just letter replacements – Soundex is probably more effective, but only works in English.
