PDF, Office, text document content support
Index the PDFs, Office, plain text and Rich Text documents within your Media library, allowing visitors to find content from those documents in your site search.
Search everything
Pick and choose the post types, taxonomies, and custom fields used for searches. Use weights to adjust result priority.
Developer friendly, automatic updates
SearchWP’s hooks allow you to customize SearchWP even further. Get automatic updates just like your other plugins.
