ElasticPress Documentation

ElasticPress, a fast and flexible search and query engine for WordPress, enables WordPress to find or “query” relevant content extremely fast through a variety of highly customizable features. WordPress out-of-the-box struggles to analyze content relevancy and can be very slow. ElasticPress supercharges your WordPress website making for happier users and administrators. The plugin even contains features for popular plugins.

ElasticPress 3.0: ElasticPress 3.0 contains major changes from 2.x including a rewrite of the feature registration API and PHP 5.4+ features. If you have problems upgrading, please create an issue. The minimum PHP version for ElasticPress 3.6.2 is 5.6.

Please note: currently, master is the stable branch on GitHub. The upcoming ElasticPress 3.7.0 release will remove built assets from the develop branch, will replace master with trunk, will build a stable release version including built assets into a stable branch, and will include a build script should you want to build assets from a branch.

Upgrade Notice: Versions 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.7, 1.8, 2.1, 2.1.2, 2.2, 2.7, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.3 require re-syncing.
