Products with a forward slash not found

By default, Relevanssi replaces slashes with spaces, so “AC/DC” becomes “AC DC” and isn’t indexed, because the words are too short.

Add this to your site:

add_filter( 'relevanssi_punctuation_filter', 'rlv_adjust_punctuation' );
function rlv_adjust_punctuation( $replacements ) {
$replacements['/'] = '';
return $replacements;

Rebuild the index, and now “AC/DC” is indexed as “ACDC”.
