Search Relevanssi.com – using Relevanssi, of course!
I am two years new to the website business. I have, however, been a graphic designer for nearly 40 years. I purchased Relevanssi after reading so many positive reviews. I had some issues getting Relevanssi installed — not because of product, but because of where I am in the learning curve. I contacted Mikko and he got me all set up, including fixing some other issues I had created in Google, which were sure to cause problems with Relevanssi. I can’t say enough positive things about Mikko. He responded to all my questions immediately, and I mean immediately. He never snarked, was always positive, and never made me feel like I don’t know what I’m doing — which I often don’t! Mikko and his product are top-shelf. The last search plugin I used displayed way, way too many results. I was afraid all the search results would be overwhelming to the user. I like the way Relevanssi displays and allows you to narrow down results as you want.
It’s seldom one gets such prompt and helpful service – much appreciated!
I had a really high end client that had a specific need and there wasn’t any other WordPress plugin out there that could handle it. We were looking at having to build something from scratch, to handle a a large and unusual database. Fortunately we found Relevanssi.
I emailed the creator a question and got a very speedy response, and so purchased and installed it. And it worked perfectly! Except for one small thing. The boolean search operators were slightly different than our client wanted. That’s not an uncommon thing, clients are really knit picky about details, and it sucks when you have to tell them something can’t be done.
But I emailed the creator of the plugin, and again he responded to me telling me he could help update the plugin to meet our needs. And he did, the very next day! This is a great plugin, with excellent support, and I will definitely be using this again. Thank you!

If you want to have a search with a date range, that’s possible with Relevanssi. It takes a bit of handling, though, as Relevanssi expects date ranges in the date query format, and getting to that from search form can be tricky. Here’s the code you need for date range searches: add_filter( ‘relevanssi_modify_wp_query’, ‘rlv_date_between’ );…
Gmedia photo gallery gives a false impression of working with Relevanssi, as you can see the gmedia_tag taxonomy appear in the list of taxonomies: However, if you try to index those tags, you’ll soon notice Relevanssi isn’t actually indexing them. That’s because Gmedia gallery doesn’t use that taxonomy for the tags. The tags are actually…
If your posts have lots of programming code examples in <pre> and <code> tags, those might look pretty bad in the search results. A snippet of programming code isn’t usually a good excerpt, and if you use those tags purely for code snippets, they won’t likely contain significant search content, either. Fortunately it’s easy to…

Nothing major, though, couple of unpleasant interface issues are fixed and there are several improvements in how highlighting works in excerpts.
