Relevanssi – A Better Search


Relevanssi remplace la recherche standard de WordPress par un meilleur moteur de recherche avec beaucoup de fonctionnalités et d’options configurables. Vous obtenez de meilleurs résultats, une meilleure présentation des résultats – vos utilisateurs vous remercieront.

This is the free version of Relevanssi. There’s also Relevanssi Premium, which has added features. For more information about Premium, see

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. Installer l’extension depuis la page Extensions de WordPress.
  2. Activer l’extension.
  3. Go to the plugin settings page and build the index following the instructions there.
  4. C’est tout !

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.


Base de connaissances

You can find solutions and answers at the Relevanssi Knowledge Base.

Contextual help

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 ne fonctionne pas

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.

Où sont les logs de recherche de l’utilisateur ?

See the top of the admin menu. There’s ‘User searches’.

Displaying the relevance score

Relevanssi stores the relevance score it uses to sort results in the $post variable. Just add something like

echo $post->relevance_score

to your search results template inside a PHP code block to display the relevance score.

Did you mean? suggestions

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

What is tf * idf weighing?

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.

Ainsi, le poids du mot dans un document augmente plus il apparaît dans ce document et moins il apparaît dans les autres documents.

What are stop words?

Chaque document est composé de plein de mots inutiles. Tous ces petits mots qui apparaissent dans à peu près tous les documents sont inutiles pour retrouver une information. En outre, leur poids dans la recherche de correspondance est très faible. De plus, retirer ces mots contribue à réduire la taille de l’index et accélère la recherche.

works but woo commerce gives this error in the status check page. "Not tested with the active version of WooCommerce" in bright red. I wish they would fix that. Then I would give 5 stars.

This Plugin is incredible! In combination with SearchWP Live Ajax Search even more so. Life long and prosper, dear plugin delevoper! 🙂

Only 4 stars because - There should be more action/filter hooks to control it (see how WooCommerce is profligate with these); - There are issues with custom fields - it seems impossible to weight certain custom fields differently to others (some of which may be irrelevanssi); - I am yet to be convinced that it plays ball with plugins like [Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce]( - I think some tab content may be omitted from the indexing; - I've looked at the code and it could do with a bit of a tidy-up. But it works really well and I am impressed. Infinitely better than the WordPress default search, or Google Custom Search, or probably any other plugin you might consider for your site. This is the one to go for. After resolving the above issues, perhaps the authors could consider providing a search engine for the internet? Let's face it, Google is rubbish and there is a gap in the market. You would have to ascribe downvotes to sites that carry adverts. Like all those blog sites that waffle on because Google liked 'quality content' but didn't actually know what it was even if slapped across the face with it by a wet kipper. There could of course be a conflict of interest if you are also trying to sell to blog sites. But this is not You know what you need to do 🙂

  • Major fix: Returns the missing stopwords.


  • New feature: It’s now possible to exclude image attachments from the index with a simple setting on the indexing settings page.
  • New feature: Page builder short codes are now removed in Relevanssi indexing. This should reduce the amount of garbage data indexed for posts in Divi, Avada and other page builder themes.
  • Changed behaviour: The relevanssi_page_builder_shortcodes filter hook is now applied both in indexing and excerpts, and has a second parameter that will inform you of the current context.
  • Minor fix: Stopwords weren’t case insensitive like they should. They are now. Also, stopwords are no longer stored in the wp_relevanssi_stopwords database table, but are now stored in the relevanssi_stopwords option.
  • Minor fix: A comma at the end of the custom field indexing setting made Relevanssi index all custom fields. This doesn’t happen anymore and trailing commas are automatically removed, too.
  • Minor fix: Accessibility improvements all around the admin interface. Screen reader support should be better, feel free to report any further ways to make this better.
  • Minor fix: Doing searches without search terms and with the throttle disabled could cause problems. Relevanssi now makes sure throttle is always on when doing termless searches.
  • Minor fix: Untokenized search terms are used for building excerpts, which makes highlighting in excerpts work better.
  • Minor fix: Indexing did not adjust the number of posts indexed at one go like it should.


  • New feature: You can now give Gutenberg blocks a CSS class relevanssi_noindex to exclude them from being indexed. Relevanssi will not index Gutenberg blocks that have the class.
  • New feature: Relevanssi automatically skips some custom fields from common plugins that only contain unnecessary metadata.
  • New feature: The search results breakdown is added to the post objects and can be found in $post->relevanssi_hits. The data also includes new fields and the breakdown from the excerpt settings page can now show author, excerpt, custom field and MySQL column hits.
  • New feature: Relevanssi can now index Ninja Tables table content. This is something of an experimental feature right now, feedback is welcome.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_indexing_query filters the indexing query and is mostly interesting for debugging reasons.
  • Minor fix: Deleted and trashed comment contents were not deindexed when the comment was removed. That has been corrected now.
  • Minor fix: Phrase matching is now applied to attachments as well, including the attachments indexed for parent post.
  • Minor fix: Phrase matching only looks at custom fields that are indexed by Relevanssi.
  • Minor fix: Exact match bonus now uses the original query without synonyms added for the exact match check.
  • Minor fix: Paid Membership Pro filtering is only applied to published posts to prevent drafts from showing up in the search results.


  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_indexing_adjust can be used to stop Relevanssi from adjusting the number of posts indexed at once during the indexing.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_acf_field_value filters ACF field values before they are indexed.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_disabled_shortcodes filters the array containing shortcodes that are disabled when indexing.
  • Removed feature: The relevanssi_indexing_limit option wasn’t really used anymore, so it has been removed.
  • Changed behaviour: Indexing exclusions from Yoast SEO and SEOPress are applied in a different way in the indexing, making for a smoother indexing process.
  • Changed behaviour: WP Table Reloaded support has been removed; you really shouldn’t be using WP Table Reloaded anymore.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi won’t choke on ACF fields with array or object values anymore.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi uninstall process left couple of Relevanssi options in the database.
  • Minor fix: WPML language filter didn’t work when fields was set to ids or id=>parent.


  • New feature: SEOPress support, posts marked « noindex » in SEOPress are no longer indexed by Relevanssi by default.
  • Changed behaviour: Membership plugin compatibility is removed from relevanssi_default_post_ok function and has been moved to individual compatibility functions for each supported membership plugin. This makes it much easier to for example disable the membership plugin features if required.
  • Minor fix: The searchform shortcode now works better with different kinds of search forms.
  • Minor fix: Yoast SEO compatibility won’t block indexing of posts with explicitly allowed indexing.
  • Minor fix: The relevanssi_the_tags() function printed out plain text, not HTML code like it should. The function now also accepts the post ID as a parameter.
  • Minor fix: Excerpt creation and highlighting have been improved a little.

  • Remove notice about undefined index.


  • Adding a missing file.


  • New feature: Multi-phrase searches now respect AND and OR operators. If multiple phrases are included in an OR search, any posts with at least one phrase will be included. In AND search, all phrases must be included.
  • New feature: Admin search has been improved: there’s a post type dropdown and the search is triggered when you press enter. The debug information has a div tag around it with the id debugging, so you can hide them with CSS if you want to. The numbering of results also makes more sense.
  • New feature: The date parameters (year, monthnum, w, day, hour, minute, second, m) are now supported.
  • New feature: New filter hook relevanssi_indexing_limit filters the default number of posts to index (10). If you have issues with indexing timing out, you can try adjusting this to a smaller number like 5 or 1.
  • New feature: Support for Paid Membership Pro added.
  • New feature: WordPress SEO support, posts marked « noindex » in WordPress SEO are no longer indexed by Relevanssi by default.
  • Removed feature: qTranslate is no longer supported.
  • Major fix: Tax query searching had some bugs in it, manifesting especially into Polylang not limiting the languages correctly. Some problems with the test suites were found and fixed, and similar problems won’t happen again.
  • Minor fix: Admin search only shows editing options to users with enough capabilities to use them.
  • Minor fix: Phrase searching now uses filterable post statuses instead of a hard-coded set of post statuses.
  • Minor fix: The plugin action links were missing on the Plugins page list, they’re back now.
  • Minor fix: Search terms with slashes won’t cause errors anymore.
  • Minor fix: Relevanssi admin pages have been examined for accessibility and form labels have been improved in many places.
  • Deprecated: relevanssi_get_term_taxonomy() function is deprecated and will be removed at some point in the future.
