WooCommerce: Make Relevanssi notice stock changes

In some cases, WooCommerce product stock level changes don’t affect the search immediately. If the search is set up to exclude out-of-stock items, a product that sells out may still be included in the search until the next reindexing. This happens because changes in the stock status don’t trigger a WordPress post update that Relevanssi…

Only return exact title matches if possible

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.

Any one- or two-letter words are not indexed unless you change this setting from the Relevanssi advanced indexing settings.
