ACF: Field names appearing in excerpts

With Advanced Custom Fields, sometimes Relevanssi picks up custom field names to include in the excerpts. This problem happens when you set Relevanssi to index all visible custom fields and have Flexible Content fields. Let’s assume there’s a Flexible Content field with the name flexible_content. It has a layout named field_layout, and in that layout,…

Gutenberg Full Site Editing

There’s something of a compatibility issue between Relevanssi and Gutenberg Full Site Editing. No results are found when you create a Query Loop to display the search results with Relevanssi enabled. The blank results happen because the post template block doesn’t use the Relevanssi results but instead uses a new WP_Query. Since Relevanssi still blocks…

However, it has a method of switching the search function, which you can use to enable Relevanssi. Add this to your child theme functions.php: Riode has WooCommerce product search features where the search term is looked…

ACF: Indexing File field title

I use the ACF field type File for a download section, but the displayed file title is not indexing. The format I return the ACF field data is “File Array (array)”. For Relevanssi, it doesn’t matter which ACF return format you choose. Relevanssi doesn’t use get_field() but instead uses the plain get_post_meta(). That always returns…

Redirecting email searches to the login page

A client asked for a solution to redirect all searches for email addresses to the login page – perhaps someone is constantly using the search field when they’re actually looking for the login. This is something that will be easier in Relevanssi Premium version 2.16, when the Redirects tool will accept regular expressions, but it’s not…
