Terrific Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a terrific plugin. I was having a very hard time with WP default search engine getting relevant results for phrase searches like "%find this phrase%". I did a lot of PHP tweaks to test various solutions out. Then I purchased and tested out some so-called premium plugins that took hours to configure and still the results were only marginally better. To my complete surprise, in less than 5 minutes after installation Better Search was returning those elusive phrase matches with outstanding priority. The developer should charge for this plugin, it deserves to be a paid plugin. Instead, he only accepts donations right now. Naturally I was more than happy to donate and support his efforts.

Great !

Great plugin !

Worst plugin ever
By , for WP 4.1

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.

Great search plugin

I needed something quicker than messing with the search.php file and creating a custom-search.php template—this was it!

The Better WordPress Search
By , for WP 4.0

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! :)

A search that works!!!
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.
Thank you

Very very good

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.
