After looking through several improve wordpress search plugins I found this one which is what I was looking for. Simple, light, and easy to use. Enable stopwords, search by tags/categories, match at least one term in the search. Hope they can add exclude specific pages from search option.
Update: After giving the plugin fair use over a period of time there are some bugs(which I have mentioned in support tickets) that need to be worked out in the plugin & def room from improvement. If they work those bugs out this plugin would be perfect.
Been stumbling through this custom field search quagmire issue for too long now: this function, that plugin and none of them worked to my satisfaction, so it comes as surprise to that this plugin pretty much resolves the issue for me.
My compliments to the chef.
I give only 4 stars to the plugin because the results are not so good as some other plugin but it's a very useful plugin for better search results and it should be used as native feature in WP.
Fast, simple to use and efficient.
Keep your good work alive!
