WordPress search doesn’t search everything, and doesn’t give you enough control over what is searched and how. Relevanssi gives you full access and full control, with plenty of filters and ways to make Relevanssi work the way you want your search to work.
Multisite searches Relevanssi can run searches across many subsites in the same multisite network.
Custom fields Relevanssi will find the content in your custom fields, including things like WooCommerce SKUs, ACF field content or whatever it is you store in custom fields. Read more about custom field search.
User profiles Yes, Relevanssi will find users by their names and profile descriptions.
Taxonomy terms No matter if you prefer categories, tags or custom taxonomies, Relevanssi will return the term archive pages in searches!
Shortcode output Relevanssi can expand shortcodes and find content generated by shortcodes.
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!
We have posts with titles like “A perfect match”. If a user searches for this exact title, only this post should show up in the results. Otherwise, the search should run as default. There are several approaches to this, but the best is relevanssi_hits_filter. This function goes through all the posts, checks if the post…
FileBird is one of many WordPress plugins that provide more control over the attachments in the Media Library. You can use the FileBird folders in Relevanssi searches to filter attachments based on their folder. Here’s a simple function you can add to your site: Once you add this, you can use the folder parameter to…
By default, Relevanssi indexes the different language versions of the posts separately. If your site is in French and English, searching for the English text will find the English posts and searching for the French text will find the French posts. But what if you want the French search terms to find the English post…
Relevanssi can index attachment contents from files linked to posts with ACF File fields. This does not happen automatically but requires some extra code. The code required depends on which return value you use for your ACF File fields. If you use “File ID”, the code looks like this: For “File Array”, the code looks…
