YD Search Functions


Display WordPress search results like Google!

This WordPress plugin installs a set of new template functions that lets you customize the way search results are displayed in your WordPress search page.
You can use on-the-fly generated Google-style text snippets to help make search result abstracts more useful.
You can do on-the-fly hit-highlighting (in-line xml-based, not through a cumbersome asynchronous Javascript).
Your customized search result snippets being included in the delivered page content, they can be indexed by third-party web search engines.

The CSS styling of snippet results is compatible with Google custom search engine stylesheets for complete integration.

The design of the search result display is highly customizable through the plugin’s settings page: you can set-up if and how the snippet’s date is displayed (localized date display is supported).
You can choose the abstract/snippet length and the way highlighted search hits are rendered.

For an example of what it can look like, look here: http://www.nogent-citoyen.com/recherche/tour+eiffel (in this example, the left columns displays WordPress-generated results using this plugin, while the right column displays asynchronous Google custom search engine results)

Check-out what your visitors are searching for!

The plugin installs a new dashboard (admin panel widget) which shows you in real time what your users are searching for on your blog (top-search listing, basic search statistics).
It implements search logging, search statistics, and gives you a most-searched widget and template function to display the list of top-searches.
The most frequently searched listing is manageable in your admin panel: you can choose to reset counters for any search expression, or ban that expression from being listed.
Most spiders and spam-robots are filtered-out of the search counter to prevent search link-spamming.

The plugin has its own admin options/settings page.

It is fully internationalized. The search functions are UTF-8 multibyte compatible and do take care of accentuated text.
The date display supports localization issues.

Base package includes .pot file for translation of the interface, and English and French versions.

NB: although already fully functional, this plugin is still in active development stage, and new features are added on a regular basis to help further improve search-result customization and display.

Available template functions

  • Use <?php echo yd_search_snippet() ?> in your search results page template loop (search.php).
    For example, in your search template theme file (search.php), find the place where it says the_content() and replace it like this:

    <?php if( function_exists( 'yd_search_snippet' ) ) yd_search_snippet() ?>
  • Use <?php echo yd_most_searched() ?> anywhere in any page template.
    For example, in your home page template theme file (index.php), insert something like this:

    <?php if( function_exists( 'yd_most_searched' ) ) yd_most_searched() ?>

Description en Français :

Ce plug-in WordPress installe des fonctions avancées d’affichage des résultats de recherche.
Vous pouvez notamment l’utiliser pour afficher des extraits de texte intelligents dans vos résultats („snippets“ à la Google).
Il n’extraira que les passages du texte contenant les mots-clés et expressions recherchés.
Il pourra également surligner dans le texte les expressions et mots recherchés.
La fonction de surlignage se fait en ligne dans le flux XML et non en mode asynchrone avec un Javascript lent et lourd.
Les snippets et les mots surlignés faisant partie du texte de vos pages de résultats de recherche, ils peuvent eux-même être indéxés par les moteurs de recherche externes du web, donnant de la valeur originale à vos pages de résultats.

Par ailleurs, ce plugin active l’enregistrement des recherches effectuées par les visiteurs sur votre site,
et vous remonte au niveau de votre interface d’administration la liste des recherches les plus fréquentes.

Une fonction de template et/ou un widget vous permettent d’afficher la liste des recherches les plus courantes pour vos visiteurs.

Le style CSS généré pour les résultats de recherche est compatible avec les feuilles de styles utilisées par le moteur de recherche Google custom pour une intégration parfaite (voir exemple ci-dessous).

Le plugin a sa propre page d’option dans l’administration.
Il est entièrement internationalisé.

La distribution standard inclut le fichier de traduction .pot et les versions française et anglaise.

Le plugin peut fonctionner avec n’importe quelle langue ou jeu de caractères.
Les fonctions de recherche et de surlignage gèrent les caractères français accentués de façon intelligente.
Elles sont compatibles utf-8 multibyte.

Pour voir un exemple du fonctionnement de ce plug-in en grandeur nature, regardez ici : http://www.nogent-citoyen.com/recherche/pavillon+baltard
(dans cet exemple, la colonne de gauche affiche des résultats WordPress générés avec ce plug-in alors que la colonne de droite affiche des résultats de l’API du moteur de recherche Google custom)
