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!

The default database collation WordPress uses (utf8mb4_unicode_ci) ignores all accents, including umlauts. If you want the search to care about umlauts, you can change the…
A Relevanssi user asked about Italian plurals on the Relevanssi support forums. The best answer is to use the Relevanssi Snowball Stemmer; it supports Italian and can handle more than plurals. You can add a function to handle just the plurals, though. Add this to your site: This function checks each word, and if it…
The Relevanssi error “Could not save the file content to the custom field” means that Relevanssi has managed to read the attachment contents but cannot save them to the _relevanssi_pdf_content custom field Relevanssi uses to store the attachment contents. Relevanssi uses the update_post_meta() function to save the content, and for some reason, that function is…
The event search from The Events Calendar does not work when Relevanssi is enabled. In regular use, it works, but if you try to access the event list directly with a search term in the URL, the search finds nothing. One solution is to make Relevanssi index the tribe_events post type. Then you can enable…
