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…
