Indexing post slugs

By default Relevanssi does not index the post slug. It is, however, an easy thing to fix using the relevanssi_content_to_index filter hook. This function will read the post slug, replace the hyphens with spaces (so that indexing-post-slugs becomes “indexing post slugs”) and add the slug to the post content. Just add this function to your…

Flatsome theme product search results page

The Flatsome theme, when combined with WooCommerce, has a product search results page that can also show posts and pages. That doesn’t work with Relevanssi out of the box, but fortunately can be made to work. The function that adds the functionality is hooked in place, so it’s easy to unhook the default function and…

Restricting the search for non-logged-in users

There was an interesting support question: I have website with logged-in users as well as non-logged-in users. The logged-in user should be able to search through everything on the website, but the non-logged-in users should only be able to search the user profiles. Is it at all possible to differentiate the searches like this? The…

Searching between dates

If you want to have a search with a date range, that’s possible with Relevanssi. It takes a bit of handling, though, as Relevanssi expects date ranges in the date query format, and getting to that from search form can be tricky. Here’s the code you need for date range searches: add_filter( ‘relevanssi_modify_wp_query’, ‘rlv_date_between’ );…

Gmedia photo gallery tags

Gmedia photo gallery gives a false impression of working with Relevanssi, as you can see the gmedia_tag taxonomy appear in the list of taxonomies: However, if you try to index those tags, you’ll soon notice Relevanssi isn’t actually indexing them. That’s because Gmedia gallery doesn’t use that taxonomy for the tags. The tags are actually…

Blocking pre and code tags

If your posts have lots of programming code examples in <pre> and <code> tags, those might look pretty bad in the search results. A snippet of programming code isn’t usually a good excerpt, and if you use those tags purely for code snippets, they won’t likely contain significant search content, either. Fortunately it’s easy to…

WP Job Manager

Relevanssi doesn’t work with the WP Job Manager search. Solution is fortunately simple: you can just disable Relevanssi for the WP Job Manager page. To disable Relevanssi, add this to your theme functions.php: add_action( ‘get_job_listings_init’, ‘relevanssi_fix_for_wp_job_manager’ );   function relevanssi_fix_for_wp_job_manager( $args ){ remove_filter(’posts_request’, ‘relevanssi_prevent_default_request’); remove_filter(’the_posts’, ‘relevanssi_query’); }add_action( ‘get_job_listings_init’, ‘relevanssi_fix_for_wp_job_manager’ ); function relevanssi_fix_for_wp_job_manager( $args ){ remove_filter(‘posts_request’,…

BeTheme compatibility

BeTheme does the strangest, weirdest, and least productive things with search I’ve ever seen in a professional theme. It can automatically clear out your search term, which of course leads to Relevanssi searches failing. I have no idea what that is trying to achieve, but it makes searching very frustrating. Fortunately the fix is simple.…
