Version 1.3.5 is a really small release that includes an interoperability fix with the Post Types Order plugin. Search results are no longer hidden when Post Types Order is activated.

Version 1.3.4 is a recommended update for everyone as it fixes an issue triggered by having both Custom Fields and attribution in play for post types. Additional fixes include better remote debugging. Full changelog:

  • [Fix] Fixed an issue where taxonomy/custom field weight may not have been appropriate attributed when applicable
  • [Fix] Fixed an issue where ‘Any’ custom field weight may not have been appropriately applied
  • [Improvement] Remote debugging info now updates more consistently
  • [Improvement] Additional method for remote debugging

This update better respects disabled post types when finding appropriate term archives to bubble to the top. It also adds a new filter, searchwp_tax_term_or_logic that allows you to enable OR logic when looking for potential term archive pages. For example if you want term archive pages with any of the search terms, you can add the following to your functions.php to have any single term matches count as prioritized:

add_filter( 'searchwp_tax_term_or_logic', '__return_true' );

Lastly: when multiple taxonomies are utilized, the term bubbling is in accordance to the taxonomy weights you have set.

Fix keyword search on your site. No coding required!

Now you can utilize all of the content that's gone unrecognized by native WordPress keyword search instantly with SearchWP
