I just noticed recently how bad the search is on my 2.2.4 pro cart. For example, in the search box if I enter ‘jamma harness’ … I should only have a few products that can relate to the search yet I get a return of 226 products which have nothing to do with that search name.
That is 226 out of the active 302 products on the site.
I installed and enabled the Quick Search but that did not do anything with the results.
I am having trouble how this search function actually works. Since there is a space between the two words when entering ‘jamma harness’, it is pulling products with a space in the name or something??
Is this something wrong with my cart and I need a major repair or something?
Please help if you have any suggestions or can point me towards a fix (I’ve searched through the forums and bug tracker but did not see anything).
I would recommend Auto suggest from Shippinkgkit
Instead of quick search.
Have a look it's free and let me know how it works for you, before you go crazy looking your data.
Ps Have also a look at user friendly search
Gives you much better search results.
Thank you for the replies!
I did see that post yesterday Flow but it did not help … I thought it would but there was no change to search results.
I was again looking at this article: http://kb2.cs-cart.c…search-by-all#3
Then I figured, what would happen if I did not have the ‘Search also in’ boxes check.
Strange as this seems but this was the problem:
Search also in  Pages  Site news
I originally had these checked but after I unchecked these, then my search for JAMMA HARNESS dropped from 226 to 6 items!
I will also check out those shipping kit add-ons, thanks dvsgr!
The results are pretty good now but if there is a way to improve them I will check it out!!
Ah yeah if you had search also displaying results from pages and news, that would explain the massive amount of results
