If you’re noticing SearchWP struggle to index long or big entries on your site, you can use theĀ searchwp_term_count_limit filter to adjust how SearchWP processes content when indexing.

When SearchWP considers something to be “big data” it will take a revised (but slower) approach to indexing that content so as to not overrun server resources. The default for this threshold is 10,000 characters.

You can customize this threshold by adding something like this to your theme’s functions.php:

// Tell SearchWP to take a more reserved (slower) approach when indexing
// Applicable for servers with limited resources
// Default $threshold is 10000
add_filter( 'searchwp_term_count_limit', function( $threshold ) {
return 5000;
} );
