Better Search replaces the default WordPress search engine with a more powerful search engine that gives search results relevant to the title and content of the post. This means that visitors to your blog will find what they are looking for quicker than if you didn’t have Better Search installed. Better Search can search through not just posts, but also pages and other custom post types. Let your visitors find what they are looking for. The plugin is packed with options to allow you to easily customise the output. You can also fine tune the results by assigning a greater weight to either the title or the content. The default mode is a seamless integration with your WordPress theme. And, for power users, Better Search supports templates for that extra something. And for even more advanced users, Better Search is packed with filters and actions that allow you to easily extend the plugin’s feature set. Additionally, the plugin also tracks the searches and you to display a “search heatmap” of the most popular searches. Support for WordPress widgets will allow you to easily add this heatmap to your theme’s sidebar or footer. Features Automatic: Once activated, Better Search will automatically replace your default WordPress search with more relevant search results Seamless integration: Search results are perfectly integrated into your theme...
