    Better Search v2.0

    Better Search just got massively better with v2.0.0. If you’ve been using WordPress’ default search engine then you’ll know by now that WordPress doesn’t give you relevant search results for your search terms. You’ll get posts that contain the search term ordered by date. Better Search completely replaces the inbuilt WordPress search engine by a contextual based search fetching you more relevant search results. For v2.0.0, I spent a lot of time completely cleaning up all the code, fixing a lot of bugs and adding in a tonne of new features. The biggest addition to the plugin is several new and many improved filters and actions that will allow developers…

    Better Search v1.3.4

    I’ve released Better Search v1.3.4 today. The biggest addition which has long been pending is the addition of a meta tag that will allow you to set the search results page to stop being indexed. Enabled by default, you can choose to disable the meta tag if needed. This should be definitely better for SEO and recommended by Google. Setting the meta tag should eventually stop Google and other search engines from unnecessarily indexing the search results pages. This plugin also adds support for Rocket Loader and fixes some minor bugs in the heatmap. I’ve also added a brand new header image for the plugin listed in the WordPress.org directory. How does it look? As usual,…

    Better Search v1.3.3

    I pushed out v1.3.3 of Better Search. The plugin replaces your WordPress search results with highly relevant search results. This version comes with a brand new responsive admin interface similar to my other plugins as well an option to disable tracking of admins and editors. My favourite new addition to the plugin is the seamless integration mode. This mode no longer needs any search templates and gives you results completely integrated within your WordPress theme. This makes it completely compatible with all WordPress themes. This will soon be the new default option for fresh installs. If you use get_bsearch_heatmap manually in your themes, please be aware of the new syntax. The function now accepts…

    Better Search v1.3.2

    I have updated the Better Search v1.3.2 into the WordPress.org repository and committed the latest version to GitHub. The new version adds a much needed filter option.

Better Search is translation ready. If you’re interested in translating Better Search into your own language let me know. If you’re interested in contributing to Better Search and are using Github, then you can fork this plugin. If you’re using this plugin, do consider leaving a good review. If you’re…

    I’ve uploaded two minor updates to CRP and Better Search, while the upgrade to Contextual Related Posts is optional, Better Search is a required update. Contextual Related Posts lets you display a list of contextually related posts for the current post. It does this by analyzing the title and content of your post and finding the most relevant posts based on this. In this release to CRP, I’ve added the Italian language which has been provided by Gianni and the Danish translation from Georg. Gianni has provided the Italian translation for Top 10 as well, while Georg has provided the Danish translation for TwitterCounter. All the translations are available when…
