Help with product search
« on: August 14, 2018, 01:53:15 PM »
Not sure where this message should go.  I have a site done up for 2600+ books we are selling for inlaws.  AbanteCart was exactly what we wanted, but I can't figure something out.

When a customer does a search, the only field that is searched in Product Name.  I would like to have the search to include a search in Description.

Want to do this as the name of the book in is the Product Name field and the author's name is in the Description.

Anyone have a quick way for me to do this?

Thanks

There are several ways to assist your customers
 - Have you added tags to your books (on the product description page)?  you could use your Author Name,  genre, etc.It is my experience that searching using a "tag" term brings up all items with that tag.
 - You could remake the manufacturing area (easy to change the word Brand to Authors) and use Authors Names for the "branding"  and that will put all the books associated with that brand into one page
 -  there are also a couple of enhanced search extensions on the MarketPlace

Hope this helps you

The better thing is to follow another shopping website in order to get the idea. As the OP suggested already. Good luck!
