The WordPress search function is much maligned and there are numerous plugins available to add enhancements but they don’t always provide what you want, especially if you are trying to build a secondary search engine that has specific requirements. Many WordPress superpowers come from its flexible data architecture that allows developers to widely customize their installations with custom post types, taxonomies, and fields. However, when it comes down to its search, WordPress only provides us with a one-field form that often appears inadequate and leads site admins to adopt external search systems, like Google Custom Search, or third-party plugins.

Despite the numerous plugins that will enhance the WordPress search from ordering by relevancy to adding facet searching to including custom fields in the search, there are occasions when any combination of plugins won’t do exactly what you want and you are left with no option but to get your hands dirty and write your own. But there is a simple plugin that can be used to overcome this.
