Adjust WordPress search results to order by relevance, not by date.
Just install in the typical WordPress plugin way and it will adjust searches automatically, no settings needed.
Also adds a relevance score to the title of search results, which you can style via CSS.
Version 2.0 gives you more control, including:
- Hide relevance scores in results titles and/or admin
- Auto style relevance scores. So you don’t have to add float:right to your CSS!
- Highlight search terms
- Custom excerpt centred on the search terms found
You can download Search Relevance over the WordPress.org plugin directory.
