Relevanssi – A Better Search


Relevanssi ersätter WordPress-standardsökning med en bättre sökmotor, med många funktioner och konfigurerbara alternativ. Du får bättre resultat, bättre presentation av resultat – dina användare kommer att tacka dig.

Detta är den kostnadsfria versionen av Relevanssi. Det finns även Relevanssi Premium som har fler funktioner. Mer information om Premium finns på

Do note that using Relevanssi may require large amounts (hundreds of megabytes) of database space (for a reasonable estimate, multiply the size of your wp_posts database table by three). If your hosting setup has a limited amount of space for database tables, using Relevanssi may cause problems. In those cases use of Relevanssi cannot be recommended.

  1. Installera tillägget från WordPress tilläggsskärm.
  2. Aktivera tillägget.
  3. Go to the plugin settings page and build the index following the instructions there.
  4. Det är allt!

Relevanssi uses the standard search form and doesn’t usually need any changes in the search results template.

If the search does not bring any results, your theme probably has a query_posts() call in the search results template. That throws Relevanssi off. For more information, see The most important Relevanssi debugging trick.


To uninstall the plugin remove the plugin using the normal WordPress plugin management tools (from the Plugins page, first Deactivate, then Delete). If you remove the plugin files manually, the database tables and options will remain.

Vanliga frågor


Du hittar lösningar och svar i Relevanssi Kunskapsbas.

Kontextuell hjälp

Answers to many common problems can be found from the contextual menu. Just click ”Help” in the top right corner of your WordPress admin dashboard on the Relevanssi settings page.

Relevanssi fungerar inte

If you the results don’t change after installing and activating Relevanssi, the most likely reason is that you have a call to query_posts() on your search results template. This confuses Relevanssi. Try removing the query_posts() call and see what happens.

Searching for words with ampersands or hyphens doesn’t work

Please read Words with punctuation can’t be found. This is a Relevanssi feature, but you can fix it from Relevanssi indexing settings.

Var är sökloggarna för användare?

Se i toppen av adminmenyn, där finns ”Sökningar av användare”.

Visning av relevanspoäng

Relevanssi lagrar relevanspoängen i $post-variabeln, som används för att sortera resultat. Lägg bara till något som liknar

echo $post->relevance_score

i din sökresultatmall i ett PHP-kodblock för att visa relevanspoängen.

Menade du?-förslag

Relevanssi offers Google-style ”Did you mean?” suggestions. See ”Did you mean” suggestions in the Knowledge Base for more details.

Vad är tf *idf viktning?

It’s the basic weighing scheme used in information retrieval. Tf stands for term frequency while idf is inverted document frequency. Term frequency is simply the number of times the term appears in a document, while document frequency is the number of documents in the database where the term appears.

Thus, the weight of the word for a document increases the more often it appears in the document and the less often it appears in other documents.

Vad är stoppord?

Each document database is full of useless words. All the little words that appear in just about every document are completely useless for information retrieval purposes. Basically, their inverted document frequency is really low, so they never have much power in matching. Also, removing those words helps to make the index smaller and searching faster.

Mikko created a custom solution for my legal blog which allows users to search for court reference numbers. Works like a charm. Great response times, really good stuff!

Any WordPress site you want to create that needs good search results you'll need this plugin, it's awesome how it works, we use it for WooCommerce sites and the product search improves a lot!

Been running on a site for a long while now without any issues. When a recent update did cause issue, the author fixed it lightning-fast with great communication. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this plugin.

I really can't say enough good things about this developer and this plugin. I'm not really that technical—I have some basic skill, but I need a lot of help whenever more complex tech skills are needed. I've been working on the most complex and challenging WordPress site I've ever worked on, and this developer has consistently responded with helpful and on-point suggestions and information at every turn. This is a very powerful plugin, but even more importantly, the support and information is invaluable. Thank you so much.

This plugin was exactly what I was looking for when trying to find a search tool that would allow "fuzzy" searching. I was able to search for SKUs with/without hyphens or spaces which is exactly what I needed. A big plus is that it queries the database extremely fast! I had a few follow up questions that I was unable to find in the support forums, so I ended up emailing Mikko. He was extremely helpful and got back to me fast! Thanks Mikko! 🙂

  • Security fix: User searches page had a XSS vulnerability.


  • Mindre åtgärd: Tog bort onödigt databasanrop från administrationssidor.
  • Mindre åtgärd: Förbättrad kompatibilitet med Oxygen.


  • Lägger till en saknad fil.


  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_render_blocks controls whether Relevanssi renders blocks in a post or not. If you are having problems updating long posts with lots of blocks, having this filter hook return false for the post in question will likely help, as rendering the blocks in a long post can take huge amounts of memory.
  • New feature: The user searches page has been improved a lot.
  • New feature: The [searchform] shortcode has a new parameter, ’post_type_boxes’, which creates a checkbox for each post type you list in the value. For example [searchform post_type_boxes=’*post,page’] would create a search with a checkbox for ’post’ and ’page’ post types, with ’post’ pre-checked.
  • New feature: You can now have multiple dropdowns in one [searchform] shortcode. Anything that begins with ’dropdown’ is considered a dropdown parameter, so you can do [searchform dropdown_1=’category’ dropdown_2=’post_tag’] for example.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_search_params lets you filter search parameters after they’ve been collected from the WP_Query.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_excerpt_post lets you make Relevanssi skip creating excerpts for specific posts.
  • Changed behaviour: Filter hooks relevanssi_1day, relevanssi_7days and relevanssi_30days are removed, as the user searches page is now different. The default value for relevanssi_user_searches_limit is now 100 instead of 20.
  • Minor fix: In some languages, iOS uses „“ for quotes. Relevanssi now understands those for the phrase operator.
  • Minor fix: Stops Relevanssi from blocking the admin search for WooCommerce coupons and other WooCommerce custom post types.
  • Minor fix: Fixes problems with the WP-Members compatibility.
  • Minor fix: New parameter for relevanssi_tokenize() introduces the context (indexing or search query). The relevanssi_extract_phrases() is only used on search queries.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi won’t let you adjust synonyms and stopwords anymore if you use Polylang and are in ’Show all languages’ mode.
  • Minor fix: Highlighting is improved by a more precise HTML entity filter, thanks to Jacob Bearce.

  • Minor fix: The Bricks compatibility was broken. This version fixes it.


  • New feature: You can now add a post type dropdown to search forms with the [searchform] shortcode with the parameter ’dropdown’ set to ’post_type’.
  • New feature: Adds compatibility for Product GTIN (EAN, UPC, ISBN) for WooCommerce plugin.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_post_to_excerpt lets you filter the post object before an excerpt is created from it.
  • New feature: Relevanssi is now compatible with the Bricks page builder theme (requires Bricks 1.3.2).
  • Mindre åtgärd: Tecknet “ räknas nu som ett citat.
  • Minor fix: Running indexing through WP CLI doesn’t cause PHP notices anymore.
  • Minor fix: Sometimes the Did you mean would return really weird long suggestions from the search logs. That won’t happen anymore.
  • Minor fix: Improves tax_query handling in fringe cases with multiple AND clauses joined together with OR.
  • Minor fix: Oxygen compatibility has been improved. Rich text fields and updating posts when they are saved in Oxygen now work better, and revisions are no longer indexed.
  • Minor fix: Searching without a search term works much better now, you get more posts in the results (default value is up to 500).


  • New feature: Adds support for Avada Live Search.
  • New feature: Adds support for Fibo Search.
  • Minor fix: Elementor library searches are not broken anymore when Relevanssi is enabled in admin.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi now understands array-style post_type[] parameters.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi now automatically considers the Turkish ’ı’ the same as ’i’.


  • New feature: Adds compatibility for WP-Members plugin, preventing blocked posts from showing up in the search results.
  • New feature: New function relevanssi_get_attachment_suffix() can be used to return the attachment file suffix based on a post object or a post ID.
  • Minor fix: Improves the Oxygen compatibility. Now also the [oxygen] shortcode tags are removed.


  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_phrase filters each phrase before it’s used in the MySQL query.
  • New feature: Relevanssi can now add Google-style missing term lists to the search results. You can either use the %missing% tag in the search results breakdown settings, or you can create your own code: the missing terms are also in $post->missing_terms. Relevanssi Premium will also add ”Must have” links when there’s just one missing term.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_missing_terms_tag controls which tag is used to wrap the missing terms.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_missing_terms_template can be used to filter the template used to display the missing terms.
  • New feature: New function relevanssi_get_post_meta_for_all_posts() can be used to fetch particular meta field for a number of posts with just one query.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_post_author lets you filter the post author display_name before it is indexed.
  • Changed behaviour: relevanssi_strip_tags() used to add spaces between HTML tags before stripping them. It no longer does that, but instead adds a space after specific list of tags (p, br, h1-h6, div, blockquote, hr, li, img) to avoid words being stuck to each other in excerpts.
  • Changed behaviour: Relevanssi now indexes the contents of Oxygen Builder PHP & HTML code blocks.
  • Changed behaviour: Relevanssi now handles synonyms inside phrases differently. If the new filter hook relevanssi_phrase_synonyms returns true (default value), synonyms create a new phrase (with synonym ’dog=hound’, phrase "dog biscuits" becomes "dog biscuits" "hound biscuits"). If the value is false, synonyms inside phrases are ignored.
  • Minor fix: Warnings when creating excerpts with search terms that contain a slash were removed.
  • Minor fix: Better Ninja Tables compatibility to avoid problems with lightbox images.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi did not work well in the Media Library grid view. Relevanssi is now blocked there. If you need Relevanssi in Media Library searches, use the list view.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi excerpt creation didn’t work correctly when numerical search terms were used.


  • Changed behaviour: relevanssi_excerpt_custom_field_content now gets the post ID and list of custom field names as a parameter.
  • Minor fix: Makes sure Relevanssi options are not wiped when the free version is deleted while Premium is active.
  • Minor fix: Adds a trailing slash to the blog URL in Did you mean links.


  • New feature: New action hooks relevanssi_pre_the_content and relevanssi_post_the_content fire before and after Relevanssi applies the_content filter to the post excerpts. Some Relevanssi default behaviour has been moved to these hooks so it can be modified.
  • Changed behaviour: The relevanssi_do_not_index gets the post object as a third parameter.
  • Minor fix: Remove errors from relevanssi_strip_all_tags() getting a null parameter.


  • Major fix: Post type weights did not work; improving the caching had broken them.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi works better with soft hyphens now, removing them in indexing and excerpt-building.
  • Minor fix: Stops indexing error messages in WPML.


  • Major fix: Stops more problems with ACF custom field indexing.
  • Major fix: Fixes a bug in search result caching that caused Relevanssi to make lots of unnecessary database queries.


  • Major fix: Stops TypeError crashes from null custom field indexing.


  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_phrase_queries can be used to add phrase matching queries to support more content types.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_excerpt_gap lets you adjust the first line of excerpt optimization.
  • Changed behaviour: The relevanssi_admin_search_element filter hook now gets the post object as the second parameter, rendering the filter hook more useful.
  • Changed behaviour: Relevanssi now automatically optimizes excerpt creation in long posts. You can still use relevanssi_optimize_excerpts for further optimization, but it’s probably not necessary.
  • Changed behaviour: The relevanssi_tag_before_tokenize filter hook parameters were changed in order to be actually useful and to match what the filter hook is supposed to do.
  • Minor fix: In some cases Relevanssi wouldn’t highlight the last word of the title. This is more reliable now.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi will now add the highlight parameter only to search results, and not to other links on the search results page.
  • Minor fix: Improved fringe cases in nested taxonomy queries.
  • Minor fix: Taxonomy terms in WPML were not indexed correctly. Instead of the post language, the current language was used, so if your admin dashboard is in English, German posts would get English translations of the terms, not German. This is now fixed.
  • Minor fix: Excerpt creation is now faster when multiple excerpts are not used.
  • Minor fix: The SEO plugin noindex setting did not actually work. That has been fixed now.


  • Major fix: The type hinting introduced for some functions turned out to be too strict, causing fatal errors. The type hinting has been relaxed (using nullable types would help, but that’s a PHP 7.4 feature, and we don’t want that).


  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_rendered_block filters Gutenberg block content after the block has been rendered with render_block().
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_log_query can be used to filter the search query before it’s logged. This can be used to log instead the query that includes synonyms (available as a parameter to the filter hook).
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_add_all_results can be used to make Relevanssi add a list of all result IDs found to $query->relevanssi_all_results. Just make this hook return true.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_acceptable_hooks can be used to adjust where in WP admin the Relevanssi admin javascripts are enqueued.
  • New feature: Support for All-in-One SEO. Posts marked as ’Robots No Index’ are not indexed by Relevanssi.
  • New feature: New setting in advanced indexing settings to control whether Relevanssi respects the SEO plugin ’noindex’ setting or not.
  • Changed behaviour: Type hinting has been added to Relevanssi functions, which may cause errors if the filter functions are sloppy with data types.
  • Changed behaviour: relevanssi_the_title() now supports the same parameters as the_title(), so you can just replace the_title() with it and keep everything else the same. The old behaviour is still supported.
  • Changed behaviour: Relevanssi no longer logs queries with the added synonyms. You can use the relevanssi_log_query filter hook to return to the previous behaviour of logging the synonyms too. Thanks to Jan Willem Oostendorp.
  • Changed behaviour: When using ACF and custom fields indexing set to ’all’, Relevanssi will no longer index the meta fields (where the content begins with field_).
  • Minor fix: The Oxygen compatibility made it impossible to index other custom fields than the Oxygen ct_builder_shortcodes. This has been improved now.
  • Minor fix: Old legacy scripts that caused Javascript warnings on admin pages have been removed.
  • Minor fix: In some cases, having less than or greater than symbols in PDF content would block that PDF content from being indexed.
