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!

It’s possible to integrate all kinds of external data to Relevanssi weights. Koko Analytics is a great analytics plugin. It collects stats about your visitors and stores them in the local database, which means those stats are available for Relevanssi. For some sites, this makes a lot of sense. For example, I have Kirjavinkit, a…
By default, Relevanssi returns all posts when searching without a search term. That’s the default WordPress behaviour. Sometimes it may not be the wanted behaviour. One reason is performance: returning all results can be very slow. To stop Relevanssi from running when there’s no search term, add this to your site: This little function will…
By default, the search ignores German umlauts. Searching for “uber” will also find “über” and so on. This ignorance is not a Relevanssi feature but instead governed by your database. 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…
