A neat way to spice up your WordPress search page is to highlight search terms within your search results. I’ve seen some tutorials on the net on how to do this, but I haven’t found one that highlights both title and post content and is a drop-in modification for WordPress.

Have you tried searching for anything out here on Weblog Tools Collection? What about the Heatmap we have at the bottom of the page?

Out here, when you conduct a search, the posts which are most relevant to the search term are listed out in order of their relevance. This ensures better search results for your search term. The solution we have here is manual and customized for this blog. So, in order to extend this all WordPress users, I’ve converted the same into a WordPress plugin titled Better Search. When you install Better Search, it will automatically replace the […]
