Tech Friday: Frustrated with WordPress search options?

Posted By on June 21, 2013


Are you frustrated with the basic search feature available in WordPress? If so, join the club. I’ve been back and forth with several different search plugins and have even tried customizing my own using a Google API. Unfortunately none of them worked well for me when I was searching my own site for items that were posted years ago. Eventually I would give up on the built-in or customized search and go to Google directly and tried the advanced settings. I can only imagine what a normal reader would do?

After all the trial and error, I’ve finally agree with what many believe is the best search option for WordPress – the Relevanssi plugin. I’ve decided to stick with it for now and wait for complaints or praise. Give it a try.
