Yoast SEO compatibility

Starting from versions 2.4.0 (Premium) and 4.3.0 (Free), Relevanssi doesn’t index posts that have been marked “noindex” in the Yoast SEO settings (“Allow search engines to show this Post in search results?”). If the “noindex” setting is in the default value or set to explicit “yes”, Relevanssi indexes the post. If you want Relevanssi to…

Premium 2.4.0 / Free 4.3.0

As suggested by the version numbering, versions 2.4.0 and 4.3.0 are major updates that change some of Relevanssi behaviour. Nothing should break, however, so updating from earlier versions is safe. New features Multi-phrase searches now respect AND and OR operators. If multiple phrases are included in an OR search, any posts with at least one…

Searching Bible verses

A common problem with Relevanssi is Bible verses. All that meaningful punctuation and single digits make exact matching of Bible verses really difficult for Relevanssi, and when searching for Bible verses, exact results are what matters – hitting something similar is generally not very helpful. There’s an easy solution, though: use phrases. Wrapping the verse in…

Premium 2.3.0 / Free 4.2.0

As suggested by the version numbering, versions 2.3.0 and 4.2.0 are major updates that change some of Relevanssi behaviour. Nothing should break, however, so updating from earlier versions is safe. There are lots of changes in this version, so now – and in future release notes – let’s look at them split down into different…

Premium 2.2.5 / Free 4.1.4

Version 2.2.5 is a maintenance version that doesn’t introduce new features (except couple of new filters), but fixes various problems. The biggest problem fixed is the case of multiplying post meta keys, which could happen when saving posts in Gutenberg. This new version will fix that: when a post is saved, all duplicate meta data…

Indexing embedded PDFs for the parent post

Relevanssi can automatically index PDF content for the parent post, if the PDF (or other attachment) is attached to the parent post in WordPress. However, that’s not always the case. Sometimes the PDF is attached to the page using an embed, and that doesn’t create a connection between the posts in WordPress. Thus, Relevanssi won’t…

Chamber Dashboard Business Directory

The Chamber Dashboard Business Directory plugin has a business directory search that’s not compatible with Relevanssi. To disable Relevanssi in those searches, add this to your theme functions.php: add_filter( ‘relevanssi_prevent_default_request’, ‘rlv_allow_chamber_search’, 10, 2 ); function rlv_allow_chamber_search( $prevent, $query ) { if ( isset( $_GET[’searchtext’] ) ) { $prevent = false; } return $prevent; }add_filter( ‘relevanssi_prevent_default_request’,…
