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!

The latest update unfortunately broke the User searches page. This update fixes that problem. I’ve also updated my test suite to catch further errors like those, so similar issues should not happen again. The Premium update also includes a minor improvement, where the “How Relevanssi sees this post” feature is now hidden by default and…
Version 2.2.2 of Premium and the matching 4.1.1 version of free include some minor fixes to search parameters. The biggest fixes are related to meta key sorting of results, some annoying error messages that crop up if you try to sort by an ACF field for example should be gone now. There were also some…
By default Relevanssi does not index the post slug. It is, however, an easy thing to fix using the relevanssi_content_to_index filter hook. This function will read the post slug, replace the hyphens with spaces (so that indexing-post-slugs becomes “indexing post slugs”) and add the slug to the post content. Just add this function to your…
The Flatsome theme, when combined with WooCommerce, has a product search results page that can also show posts and pages. That doesn’t work with Relevanssi out of the box, but fortunately can be made to work. The function that adds the functionality is hooked in place, so it’s easy to unhook the default function and…
