Known conflicts

Relevanssi doesn’t work with everything. Here are some plugin or theme incompatibilities that we are aware of:

Doesn’t work at all

Limited compatibility

  • FooGallery – Relevanssi can index the images in the galleries, but the galleries themselves are inaccessible to Relevanssi.

Has issues

  • WP File Download – WP File Download overrides Relevanssi post type settings and sets the searched post types to “post, page, wpfd_file”. That can be overridden with a relevanssi_modify_wp_query filter function. Relevanssi is compatible with WP File Download and can read PDF content indexed by WP File Download. The PDF content won’t show up in excerpts.
  • Divi – The Search Results Template in Divi simply does not use Relevanssi at all. If you want Relevanssi results with Divi, you cannot use a custom search results template.
  • Elementor – The instructions on Customizing the Search Results don’t work with Relevanssi. Like with Divi above, you’ll end up with a template that does not use Relevanssi.
  • Beaver Builder – Like with Divi and Elementor, Relevanssi cannot be used within Beaver builder modules, see this thread on WP.org support forums.
