I needed a plugin that would let me add searching category and tag names to my default search capability. This plugin allows that and a whole lot more through the slew of configuration features it offers. I haven't had any problems with using it and would definitely recommend it to other WP users.
I am using a catalog plugin and this was better than thier search tool and it worked EXACTLY as I wanted it to. Thanks!
Great plugin. Works as intended. Five Star.
Works well with my Advanced Custom Fields data, it exposes or makes available any of my custom field data to the search query.
I have disabled the plugin because the advertising link that pops up in the backend looks spammy to me.
Being able to change the placeholder text WP's default search would be great.
This used to be a good plugin but no longer. We are no longer using it on any of our sites.
There are several core issues IMO:
I'm sad to say it but I have to recommend not using this plugin anymore. I will happily change my review and rating if these issues get fixed and the plugin is actively supported again.
Works with Gantry 4 too!
Works perfectly with custom fields, and seems well written and documented.
I have been trying out different search plugins. This one is pretty good if you are looking for something that works with minimal configuration and setup. However, if you want to change things (e.g., search logic, excluding specific taxonomies or custom fields, choosing which post types and post statuses to include, the number of results shown per page, add filters, etc.), this is not very extensible (no developer hooks provided) so you would have to hack the core code.
