Search Relevanssi.com – using Relevanssi, of course!
I wanted to boost the regular search function for a website that
contains many documents. I wanted to achieve that searching could be
performed much more accurately and visitors are served faster. For this
I bought the Relevanssi premium plugin. I received fantastic and fast
help for the installation. I strongly recommend going a step further and
buy the premium version!

I’d just like to give a shout out to how awesome this plugin is (Premium version). I have a site with pages, standard posts and a custom post for a document library where a couple gigs of PDFs are stored on AWS S3 using another plugin, and Relevanssi does a full-text index of all of it and returns context-sensitive results in less than a second. Plus good documentation and a responsive developer. This is the stuff of dreams.
I’ve used Relevanssi for several years now, and it is an essential plugin on my bigger sites. Relevanssi is an absolute must-have if you want to offer a better user experience on your WordPress website, because we all know how important a good search function is (and how bad the standard WordPress search is). Mikko keeps adding new features – I love the PDF search and more recently the related posts feature. Support is excellent, even for help with non-standard features. Thanks Mikko!

This solution checks for matches also in other languages. If Relevanssi finds any, this script then replaces them with the translated posts. You get…
Searching for shop orders is tricky business with WooCommerce. WooCommerce blocks searching the orders. WooCommerce also keeps the order data in many different tables. Because of this complexity, the shop_order post type is not available for indexing. You can enable it by adding this to your theme functions.php: This is not enough, though. The order…
Relevanssi doesn’t by default index the headings in Visual Composer. This is because the vcex_heading shortcode Visual Composer for the headings stores the heading text inside a shortcode attribute. By default, Relevanssi does not index shortcode attributes. In this case, indexing the shortcode attribute is necessary. Fortunately it’s easy to fix with a simple function…
In general, searches ignore accents, which is generally a good idea: for example in French, the difference between e and é isn’t huge, and it’s fine if the search engine isn’t too picky about which is which. However, there are cases where there is a big difference: for example in Finnish, the letter ä isn’t…
