Support » Plugin: Relevanssi - A Better Search » Words similarity?

  • Hello!

    First of all, thank you for your wonderful plugin. I’m using it very frequently and it’s always very useful.

    But, seems like i’ve encountered with inefficient search when query words contain some spelling errors. Is it true that Relevanssi isn’t process words based on their overall similarity (like, Levenshtein distance for ex.)?

    Nope, nothing like that. It would make the search much heavier on the server, and I think it would also decrease the relevancy of the results.

    Relevanssi Premium has a “did you mean” feature, which is based on word similarity compared to actual terms in the database.

    Ok, thanks again.
