Change the way your WordPress website prioritizes search results, letting your users automatically train your website, teaching it which results are the most relevant for each search.


Result Pinning

For each search you can set one result to be pinned to the top of the results list, so that regardless of result popularity or custom ordering, that result will be the first one displayed.

Search Words Highlighting

Choose a highlight colour and highlight the words users have searched for on the search results page. If a highlighted word does not appear in the excerpt it will attempt to create a better excerpt with the first searched word.

Custom Result Ordering

As well as ordering the first five results by popularity, you can choose to have results ordered by either:

  • Date created
  • Date modified
  • Title

Advanced Search Form and Result Filtering

Display an advanced search form on the search results page to let users filter results by post type, post categories and tags.

Related Searches

If the current search has zero results you can display links to searches that look similar, which other users have tried.
