Using Relevanssi in wp_link_query

If you want to use Relevanssi in the link queries (the search you get when adding links to posts in Classic editor), that’s easy. Make sure Relevanssi is enabled in admin searches, and then add this function: This function will make the Classic Editor link queries use Relevanssi. This approach generally works fine, but if…

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 can be achieved with the Redirects tool, as it takes regular expressions. You can also add this to your site: This function…

Support for ^ and $ anchoring operators

In regular expressions, ^ can be used to match the beginning of the line and $ to match the end of the line. For example, ^ban will match banana, but not urban, while ban$ matches urban, but not banana. These are called anchoring operators. By default, Relevanssi matches either beginning or the end of the…

Adding direct links to outside pages to search results

Hi, is there a way to add a link to another website when searching for certain keywords? We have a few affiliates and we want to include a direct link to their websites in the search results when certain terms are searched for. How would I go about this? A straight-forward approach for this is…

Relevanssi breaks autoembeds on result pages

You may notice that enabling Relevanssi custom excerpts breaks all autoembeds (things like Youtube video embeds) on search results pages. That’s done on purpose, because the autodiscovery of those embeds can be a proper performance killer if the search results include lots of embedded content. Thus, Relevanssi switches the feature off, considering it’s not commonly…

Moving the admin search page

Jules Colle came up with a method of moving the Relevanssi admin search page from under the Dashboard heading to the top level of the admin menu. This function adds an admin_menu action that first uses remove_submenu_page() to remove the existing admin search function and then add_menu_page() to add it again on the top menu…

Forced phrase search with fallback

Relevanssi by default does not consider the search query a phrase, or value posts where the words in the search query appear together. Sometimes people do expect that, especially in AND searches. Relevanssi however does not have the information about the nearby words, so it’s not possible for Relevanssi to factor that in. Relevanssi does…

WP Download Manager

WP Download Manager is a popular file management plugin for WordPress. It’s unfortunately incompatible with Relevanssi attachment content reading out of the box, as Relevanssi expects the attachments to be stored in the Media Library, and WP Download Manager stores the files outside Media Library. Fortunately, Relevanssi includes the necessary filter hooks that make it…

Exact matches for short search terms

Is is possible to set Relevanssi in a way that it would return only perfect matches for queries up to 3 characters, but any words that starts with the queried term if it has 4 characters or more? – Originally asked here Yes, but it requires a bit of code. Add this to your site and…

Indexing only attributes from shortcodes

I need to add some custom shortcodes to the list of the “removed” ones (so they don’t show in plain text in the results). However, some of them are built like [shortcode_name text=”Need to keep this in results”] and I would like the content in the text parameter to stay in the results. How do I go about this?…
