Exact Matches vs Fuzzy Matches

Exact matching and Fuzzy Matching options

General Options -> Logic & Behavior

By default the plugin uses fuzzy matching across the selected fields.

When exact matching is enabled, the plugin no longer considers each keyword as separate, but the whole phrase is a single keyword.

Match "Anywhere"

Match "Starting with"

Match "Ending With"

Secondary logic matching

When enabled, and there are not enough matches to fullfill the limit set to the results, the plugin will trigger a fuzzy search with the secondary keyword logic set - to fill the remaning result places.
