    Only 4 stars because
    – There should be more action/filter hooks to control it (see how WooCommerce is profligate with these);
    – There are issues with custom fields – it seems impossible to weight certain custom fields differently to others (some of which may be irrelevanssi);
    – I am yet to be convinced that it plays ball with plugins like [Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce](https://wordpress.org/plugins/yikes-inc-easy-custom-woocommerce-product-tabs/) – I think some tab content may be omitted from the indexing;
    – I’ve looked at the code and it could do with a bit of a tidy-up.

    But it works really well and I am impressed. Infinitely better than the WordPress default search, or Google Custom Search, or probably any other plugin you might consider for your site.

    This is the one to go for.

    After resolving the above issues, perhaps the authors could consider providing a search engine for the internet? Let’s face it, Google is rubbish and there is a gap in the market. You would have to ascribe downvotes to sites that carry adverts. Like all those blog sites that waffle on because Google liked ‘quality content’ but didn’t actually know what it was even if slapped across the face with it by a wet kipper. There could of course be a conflict of interest if you are also trying to sell to blog sites. But this is WordPress.org not wordpress.com… You know what you need to do 🙂

    Dear WordPress,

    Please support Markdown here instead of pseudo-HTML. In 2019, no-one expects HTML entered in a comment to actually persist.
