Is there a way to tell WordPress to only search the keywords and nothing else? For example, if I searched "yellow, red, white" it would only display posts with one or a combination of those keywords in it.

Is this possible in WP?

+1 for Relevanssi. It is a great search overhaul for WP, and gives you a LOT more control over results. Best part is, it hooks into the core search function so you don't have replace any front-end code (no special search boxes, etc). – SickHippie Mar 30 '12 at 17:15
I can't seem to find anything that relates to displaying posts that include ONLY the keywords though. Anyone mind pointing me in the right direction? – realph Mar 30 '12 at 17:22
@realph: read the docs for the plugin; it supports what you call "keyword' search results. Putting "keywords" in quotes tells as earch engine to only display results with those keywords. – markratledge Mar 30 '12 at 20:01
