    I played around with a variety of plugins to improve searches. I really like this one.

    I have a site that uses custom post types, with custom fields. A lot of the data I need searched exists in those fields. Is there a way to make this plugin search those?

    Currently there isn't a way to search the custom fields because the relevance based matching only works on the "content" field.

    It's one of the things I am working on, but it is complicated by the fact that each custom post type has its very own custom field which doesn't make it generic unfortunately.
