Polylang: Bilingual search

By default, Relevanssi indexes the different language versions of the posts separately. If your site is in French and English, searching for the English text will find the English posts and searching for the French text will find the French posts. But what if you want the French search terms to find the English post…

ACF: Indexing files from File fields

Relevanssi can index attachment contents from files linked to posts with ACF File fields. This does not happen automatically but requires some extra code. The code required depends on which return value you use for your ACF File fields. If you use “File ID”, the code looks like this: For “File Array”, the code looks…

Index only short numbers

Relevanssi has a minimum word length setting that is set to three characters. Any one- or two-letter words are not indexed unless you change this setting from the Relevanssi advanced indexing settings. Sometimes it would be helpful to ignore short words but to index one- and two-digit numbers. You can do that with a bit…

ACF: Filtering custom fields by type

On sites where ACF fields are used a lot, with Flexible Content and Repeater fields, it may be difficult to make Relevanssi only index the relevant ACF fields. One way to deal with problem is to set Relevanssi to index “visible” custom fields and then restrict the indexed fields by field type. Add this function…

WPML: Indexing synced posts

When a post is updated, WPML updates all the translations of the post, but Relevanssi only indexes the post that was updated, not the corresponding posts in other languages. This method hooks into save_post after WPML to tell Relevanssi also to index the matching translations. Thanks to Garrett McGilvray / Éditions CEB. There’s a similar…

Automatic redirects to category archives

While Relevanssi Premium can return taxonomy terms as search results, sometimes sending the searcher directly to the category archive is better. This is especially true for WooCommerce sites, where displaying taxonomy terms in search results pages is complicated. Relevanssi Premium has a redirect feature you can use to redirect searches to specific pages. This is…

Indexing fails? Check max_allowed_packet!

Sometimes Relevanssi can get stuck in the indexing. Relevanssi goes past the number of posts in the database and keeps indexing the posts. One possible cause is a too small max_allowed_packet value for your MySQL server. This value controls how big queries your MySQL server can take. You can see the current value with one…

Reading wpDataTables imported tables

The wpDataTables table plugin has several ways to handle tables. Some of them work with Relevanssi without problems; some don’t. You may notice that Relevanssi doesn’t index the entire table contents for wpDataTables tables (mainly imported tables). This is because the wpDataTables shortcode does not always expand to the entire table; it only features part…

Polylang Pro: Indexing synced posts

Polylang Pro has a feature to sync translations between posts. The problem with this and Relevanssi is that Relevanssi does not index the changes to the synced posts. With this filter function added to your site, Relevanssi will also index the synced posts: Thanks to Nico von Niederhäusern / Cubetech. There’s also a method for…
