Partial matches to just one custom field

Is it possible to set (with filters and/or actions/functions) Relevanssi to use whole words keyword matching for post titles and 2 custom fields, and partial keyword matching only for a specific custom field (sku in this case)? Indeed it is! That is, you can’t set different keyword matching methods to different parts of the post,…

Excluding old content from the search

Is there a way to exclude anything before 2016 from search results? Yes. There are two approaches to this. If you never want to see anything old in the results, it’s best to filter in indexing. Add this to your theme functions.php. If, on the other hand, you only want to apply this filter in…

Restrict search by author from the search query

You can set Relevanssi to index the post author, which will then let you find posts by searching for the name of the author. But what if you want a stricter filter? Where searching for an author would only show posts by that one author, and nothing else? That’s possible too. Add this function to…

Indexing image captions for the posts

The use case is I run several newspapers, and the “caption” field when uploading media is where the journalists put the photographer credit. We need to be able to index the photographer bylines, but ideally would want to return the story/commentary where their image was used, not the image itself. If you want to index…

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…

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…
