WooCommerce 4.4 problems

Updating WooCommerce to version 4.4 breaks Relevanssi searches. After updating WooCommerce to version 4.4, Relevanssi searches no longer find results.

This problem is caused by changes in WooCommerce. Those who are interested in the details can go read the GitHub issue I created. For those interested in solving the problem, the next version of Relevanssi will include a fix and meanwhile, you can fix the problem by adding this to your site:

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop', 'relevanssi_wc_reset_loop' );
function relevanssi_wc_reset_loop() {
	global $wp_query;
	if ( $wp_query->is_search ) {

This little function fixes the problem in most cases (please let me know if you have a case where this does not solve the problem!).

Update 21.8.2020: This page originally offered a one-liner solution. The smaller solution works but may have side effects. The new version targets only search queries.

Update 26.8.2020: This fix is no longer necessary with Relevanssi Premium 2.10.1 and Relevanssi free 4.8.1.
