    Hi there, just installed your plugin, but when I test it I'm only getting old posts in the results, none of my recent stuff. You can try it out if you like: http://gatewaygazette.ca/search/ - we post stuff pretty much every hour, every day - so there's no reason for the top results in almost any search to be several months, or worse years, old.

    Also, is there any chance you're working on a feature that will add the date to each of the post results.

    And I'm sorry, but it's really annoying when you click on a result and then hit your back arrow on the browser to go back to the results and they are no longer there.

    One more thing, if I may just offer the suggestion, it would be nice if the results were spread out just a wee bit more (larger space divider between each result) or even adding a divider line.

    Having said all this - well done and thank you for taking the time to build a plugin for the rest of us, it is appreciated.

    The current version of the plugin doesn't sort search results... they're listed in whatever order they're stored in the table.. so your newer posts may appear near the bottom of the list. In this initial release, we wanted to focus on being able to drill down into a small subset of posts... not navigating large sets of results. However, it'd be easy to add a sort feature, and I've put it on the to-do list for the next release.

    Yes.. the current dev version actually supports using custom user defined template files, so you could add whatever you want to the results (post thumbnails, dates, tags, etc). In your version, you could add a <?php echo get_the_date($item->id) ?> to line 257 of wp-ultimate-search.php.. but we should be pushing the update out soon.

    You can spread out the results yourself using the stylesheet.

    Thanks! I'm glad you're getting some use out of it!
