    Better Search has its own caching system and is also compatible with caching plugins like WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache, so you don’t have to worry about performance issues. It also has a profanity filter that lets you block unwanted words from search queries. And it is translation ready, so you can use it in any language.

    Here are some of the main features of Better Search:

    • Automatic: Just activate the plugin and enjoy better search results right away
    • Seamless integration: No need to edit any code or create custom search templates
    • Relevance: Sort the results by relevance or date, and assign different weights to title and content
    • Control the results: Search within title, content, excerpt, meta fields, authors, tags and other taxonomies and comments
    • Popular searches: Show a heatmap of the most popular searches on your site, either as a widget or a shortcode
    • Customisation: Use your own template file and CSS styles for the ultimate look and feel
    • Supports cache plugins: Works seamlessly with caching plugins like WP-Super-Cache and W3 Total Cache

    If you want to take your site search to the next level, download Better Search today and see the difference for yourself.

    mySQL FULLTEXT indices

    On activation, the plugin creates three mySQL FULLTEXT indices (or indexes) in the *_posts table. These are for post_content, post_title and (post_title,post_content). If you’re running a multisite installation, then this is created for each of the blogs on activation. All these indices occupy space in your mySQL database but are essential for the plugin to run.

    Contribute

    Better Search is also available on Github
    So, if you’ve got some cool feature that you’d like to implement into the plugin or a bug you’ve been able to fix, consider forking the project and sending me a pull request.
