I don’t see any changes.
This plugin has no settings page, it modifies the internal search to ignore HTML comments in the post markup.
Imagine a development blog using a syntaxhighlighting block. If you search on this blog to find posts with the term “syntaxhighlighting” you will get every post with code and not only those post which are really about syntax highlighting.
I need more features!
This plugin just wants to solve this particular problem without too much overhead. If you need more customizations to your search, then please have a look at Relevanssi.
It is building up an index from your content and is therefore solving the underlying issue in another way with much more ways to customize it. And it will be even faster.
Can I help you?
Thanks for asking! Yes, I’m very interested in edge cases and incompatibilities (other plugins or server configurations).
Please report on the Github page.
Props for helping to fix this go to espiat, l1nuxjedi, mustafauysal, ravishaheshan, and websupporter!
