Free 3.4

Relevanssi 3.4 was just released. It’s WordPress 4.2 compatible, fixes few small bugs and adds much better meta_query support.

  • New filter: relevanssi_valid_admin_status can be used to adjust post statuses that Relevanssi will handle.
  • If Relevanssi creates an empty excerpt for a post and there’s a user-set excerpt for the post, that excerpt is used.
  • No ellipsis is added to the post excerpt, if the post excerpt shows the whole post.
  • The relevanssi_post_title_before_tokenize filter now has a second parameter that contains the post object.
  • New filter: relevanssi_display_common_words can be used to disable the “25 most common words” listing on the settings page, if it’s too heavy to load.
  • Relevanssi was sanitizing taxonomy titles too aggressively. That is now toned down a bit.
  • Relevanssi now supports post_parent, post_parent__in and post_parent__not_in, though you have to set them in relevanssi_modify_wp_query filter for them to work.
  • Meta query support should now be perfect; there were some limitations with complicated meta queries before.

  1. I updated from 3.3.8 to 3.4 and the search form in the WooCommerce Product Search widget stopped returning results. The products are in the index because they appear when a full search is performed, but not when post_type=product is present. Has anyone else seen the same issue?

      1. Yes, it does work if the “post_type” parameter is switched to “post_types” (i.e. “post_types=product”). Thanks Mikko!
