#3387 closed task (blessed) (fixed)

Build Elasticsearch Index:

Reported by: gibrown's profile gibrown Owned by: gibrown's profile gibrown
Milestone: Improved Search Priority: normal
Component: Keywords:


Two open tickets for that could be addressed easily if we had an ES index:
#1455 and #394

Between Jetpack Search and Jetpack Related Posts, both of these should be easy to resolve. We've already proven out the path from to APIs as a workable way to implement these sorts of features.

Steps needed:

  • Turn on Jetpack for and sync all posts
  • Turn on Jetpack Search

The final implementation of the two features can then be tracked in those tickets.

#2874 brought up a case which would be nice to handle with this - Searches for cities, such that 'Denver' should show up videos from WordCamp Denver.
Currently it only does so if the post_title or post_content include 'Denver' (which most videos don't), where as Camp data is stored in a taxonomy.

It's taken awhile, but I think we are finally at a place where we can do this relatively easy. With just a little tweaking, I plan to add Jetpack Instant Search this week to

This should solve most of the open issues, including

  1. Multi-language issues like case sensitive search
  2. More relevant results which search tags, categories, and other custom taxonomies
  3. Plus filtering, type as you search, highlighting, etc.

All of the changes necessary on the side. is hosted on
