Different fuzzy search setting on different searches

On one of our sites we have 2 search boxes, one where you can do a normal search and the other where you can search for employees or departments. The employees/department search is done by using the relevanssi_do_query() function. Can we use fuzzy matching on the normal search and disable it on the employees/department search?…

Which custom fields had the hit?

While the free version of Relevanssi will match search terms in custom field content, it doesn’t know which custom field had the matching content. Premium has that information and it can be made available. First, you need this in your functions.php: add_filter(’relevanssi_match’, ‘cfdetail’); function cfdetail($match) { global $customfield_data; $customfield_data[$match->doc] = $match->customfield_detail; return $match; }add_filter(‘relevanssi_match’, ‘cfdetail’);…

Using Relevanssi without a search term

Version 1.7.3 introduces the possibility to use Relevanssi without a search term. This is useful when you have extra query arguments that can be used to narrow the search, but which would be useful without a search term present. This was originally implented for a restaurant search, where the users can search for restaurants based…

Separating posts by post type

Using the relevanssi_hits_filter, it’s easy to separate the search results by post type. The basic idea is: first split the search results in separate arrays by post type, then merge then back to $hits[0] in the correct order. The order of search results within the types remains untouched in the process. More relevanssi_hits_filter examples in…

Relevanssi_post_ok filter

Versions 2.9.8 (free) and 1.5.13 (premium) added a new filter, relevanssi_post_ok, which can be used to add support for membership plugins where there is a need to restrict certain posts from certain users. By default, this filter calls relevanssi_default_post_ok(), which has built-in support for private posts, Role-Scoper and s2member. Add your own function, if you…

Modify excerpts with relevanssi_excerpt_content

From free 2.9.1 and Premium 1.5.8, there’s a new filter that makes modifying the excerpts easier. The relevanssi_excerpt_content filter is run after the post content is run through the the_content filter and before any other cleanup is done. This is a good point to insert for example custom field content. The filter hook passes three…

Disabling title or content indexing

If you want to prevent the indexing titles or post content for some reason, Relevanssi has couple of useful filters for that. The filters are called relevanssi_index_content and relevanssi_index_titles. These are simple true/false filters, so if you want to activate the filter, add a function that returns false, like this: add_filter( ‘relevanssi_index_content’, ‘__return_false’ ); That’s all. Replace…

Taxonomy archive search

This is a Premium feature and only applies when you index taxonomy terms. This does not apply in free Relevanssi. To include taxonomy pages (categories, tags, custom taxonomies) in the search, enable the option in the options page. There’s also the option to choose which taxonomies are included. Currently the title of the taxonomy is…

Custom weighing with relevanssi_match and relevanssi_results

If you want to fine-tune the post weights, version 1.4.5 introduces a new hook for that. The relevanssi_match hook lets you modify the matches found for queries. It passes a match object, which has the post id ($match->doc), number of hits found in different parts of the post and the weight assigned to the post…

Search results breakdown by type

Do you want to have a breakdown of search results by post type? This could be used for example to show a list of post types like books, movies, albums on a review site, and make them links to limit the search results to that post type. This is fairly easy to do with the…
