Premium 2.12 / Free 4.10

This version started as a small update to 2.11 and 4.9, but then a customer request made me add a major enough feature to warrant a bigger version number update. The big new feature in this version is multilingual stopwords and synonyms. If you’re using WPML or Polylang and have your site in multiple languages,…

Premium 2.11 / Free 4.9

Premium 2.8 / Free 4.7

These versions add new features, but these are mostly small and of interest to developers. As a big change Relevanssi is now active in Media Library searches in the admin backend (if admin searches are enabled): feedback on this is welcome. Excerpts should be slightly better, especially when content stopwords are involved and post part…

Excluding old content from the search

Is there a way to exclude anything before 2016 from search results? Yes. There are two approaches to this. If you never want to see anything old in the results, it’s best to filter in indexing with relevanssi_indexing_restriction. Add this to your theme functions.php: Note that the restriction explains which posts are included in the…

Controlling attachment types in index

Relevanssi lets you index attachments – not their contents, but the names and descriptions. But perhaps you only want to index a particular type of attachment? Relevanssi settings don’t have any control over that, it’s either all attachments or nothing. It is possible to choose which kinds of attachments are indexed. It is done with the…

Excluding protected posts

A site I’m working with has a handful of “protected” posts (password required to view). For various reasons, we don’t want to show these in search results. While there is no excerpt shown, I’d prefer for people to not even know they exist. Relevanssi sees protected posts as public posts (because their post status is…

How to include specific posts

Hello, I’m using WooCommerce and Relevanssi and they work great. My Site Search only searches Products, however I want to let certain posts appear in the search results. Is there a way to allow certain posts to be in the results? Yes. There are many ways to do this, and the best way depends on…
