Version 1.4 is available to all license holders and brings a couple of fixes, the primary of which being a fix for the indexing of comment data, and a new feature allowing you to pause the indexer progress without disabling SearchWP.

If you have given weight to comments in any of your settings, you will need to purge your index so as to inherit the comment data fix.

Full 1.4 changelog:


  • [New] Added a new Advanced setting to allow you to pause the indexer without deactivating SearchWP
  • [New] New filter: searchwp_include_comment_author allows you to enable indexing of comment author
  • [New] New filter: searchwp_include_comment_email allows you to enable indexing of comment author email
  • [New] New filter: searchwp_auto_reindex to allow you to disable automatic reindexing of edited posts
  • [New] New filter: searchwp_indexer_paused to allow you to override the Advanced setting programmatically
  • [Fix] Fixed an issue where comments were not accurately indexed
  • [Improvement] Improved stability of results when multiple posts have the same final weight by supplementally sorting by post_date DESC
