Version 1.6 has just been released and it’s got a ton of great stuff included. There was a big focus on reducing the overall footprint of the indexer, you’ll find server loads reduced when building indexes from this version forward. A number of new filters will make both the indexing and searching of your site […]
Version 1.5.5 is a recommended update for everyone as it improves performance in a number of areas. Most significantly you should see faster index times both during initial index builds (and after purges) in addition to delta updates (e.g. when you edit content). Another existing addition in 1.5.5 is that SearchWP will now auto-throttle the […]

Version 1.4.7 fixes a small bug that prevented excluding terms based on the established minimum word length. This resulted in potential false positives with ignoring custom stop words and other edge cases. It’s a recommended upgrade for everyone.

Allow me to explain: Out of the box, SearchWP applies AND logic to entire posts. That is to say terms can appear in the title, content, excerpt, slug, anywhere. As long as all the […]
The last few releases have been focused on improvements to AND logic, as is 1.4.5. Further, you can now give weights of -1 to forcefully exclude results if keywords show up there. SearchWP will also now ignore postmeta that WordPress ads but usually isn’t useful for search, things like edit locks and such. You can […]
