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.

Great search utility and great support
By , for WP 4.1

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 plugin,

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.

Broke my WP server
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Does not work on multisite
By , for WP 3.8.2

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.
