Better Search replaces the default WordPress search with a better search that gives contextual results sorted by relevance
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.
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.
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.
Much better way to search.
Like the fact it adds rel="bookmark" as well
This is the module I was looking for for days. It indexed all my content - pages, post, products, events ...
Was looking for a while for a good search plugin.
Easy to install and work
