Better Search replaces the default WordPress search with a better search that gives contextual results sorted by relevance
Searches yielded no results. Had to deactivate and activate again to make it work. After one day, same, searches started yielding no results, then had to deactivate activate again. Avoid, poor plugin.
I spent some time searching for an improved search facility. This works well without any complicated setup required.
Support is really good and timely.
I needed something quicker than messing with the search.php file and creating a custom-search.php template—this was it!
I've tested every single search plugin for WordPress, most of them have way too many features, settings, and whatnot. Better Search is easy, simple and does what it says, a better search. :)
Seamless integration makes it better than any other search plugin if you ask me. You have your design, you don't wanna mess about. Seamless integration. One click and no painful CSS-editing required. :)
The developer responded quickly and was very helpful! :)
After long search and testing for the right plugin i found this one.
It works perfect, search results much more relevant.
I use it on a multisite setup and activated on the site i need it.
Just what I was looking for. Would have given it 5 stars if the plugin would highlight the search item when a page shown in the search results is opened.
This plugin made my WordPress server freeze when I tried to activate it.
Having compared Better Search to many other plugins, including premium/paid, I vote for Better Search! Right "out of the box", it offers a very nice layout and little extras like the relevance percentage and results per page switch. But the best feature of all is the actual search engine, returning truly relevant pages.
Had to get in touch with support via the forum, and the developer is very quick to respond.
Well - the search results are better though and the "heatmap" for search results is a nice add on.
But so far this plugin seems not to support multisite installations - so it's completely useless for me.
