Relevanssi - A Better Search

Relevanssi replaces the default search with a partial-match search that sorts results by relevance. It also indexes comments and shortcode content.

BEST FREE Search Plugin You Ever Wanted
By , for WP 4.5.3

Very full of feature, works out of the box after the index.
Have some problems with my theme, but support was very helpfull and the problem was fixed. (the problem was on my side)


Awful search algorithm; waste of time, especially free.
By , for WP 4.5.2

Despite the various filters, Relevanssi's searching capability is far worse than WordPress' default searching. It constantly gives irrelevant search results, while results are always consistent without Relevanssi. The free version is also missing a variety of essential tools that don't make it a complete pain to deal with. Would absolutely not recommend.

Works better than "Search Everything" plugin!
By , for WP 4.5.2

I had initially installed the "Search Everything" plugin, but when I went to search for a product, the product was showing up on the second page. That wasn't very relevant.

So I installed Relevanssi, checked off the "product" field in the admin, and searched my product. Immediately it came up on the first page, in the first position.


Love it!

Absolutely love this plugin! Have looked t the forums for help here and there, and author response is always thorough.

A huge improvement over the default WordPress search function
By , for WP 4.5.2

A huge improvement over the default WordPress search function and a real benefit to users. Custom search query highlighting and factor weighting are awesome. Not quite clear if it actually weighs the text content of the post itself though. Maybe someone can answer that question?

Great but loud

The search is efficient but takes a long time. (free version)

Incredible search function!
By , for WP 1.14.2

I'm using the premium version and very happy with it! It works with my 4.5. I've been using Relevanssi with my sites for 4 years now and very impressed. It works beautifully out of the box and then may need a little custom coding if you want highlighting options.

Excellent Plugin with Excellent Support!
By , for WP 4.5

Relevanssi has exceeded my expectations. With just a bit of customization it has done everything I've needed a search plugin to do. Plus I had a tricky issue that I thought was going to be impossible to solve, and the author Mikko quickly responded with a solution that worked. Super job, thank you!
