An overview of the search feature in PrestaShop

PrestaShop is an ecommerce software available to freely download from their website. It hasn’t been long since it was released, in spite of which it has risen to popularity quite fast. It has several features like search for one, which is highly customisable compared to other ecommerce softwares around. It does not require a PrestaShop developer to help you out with it. However, if you do wish to customise the theme or functionally of your shopping cart then it is best to hire a PrestaShop developer. Alakmalak is one such company that offers such services.

The search feature can be used and configured as explained below:

You first, need to login to the admin section of your PrestaShop installation. Then go to the admin menu Preferences  Search.

Here there is a section by the name Indexation which provides information on the number of products that can be searched through the shop’s search function and compares it to the number of products present in the database. In the rare case that the value does not match the number of products in your store you need to select the option ‘Add missing products to the index’.

If you scroll down all the way till the bottom you will come across a section by the name ‘Weight’, which allows you to configure the behaviour of the shop’s search function.

Besides this it is possible to make several other settings like AJAX search which enables results hinting simultaneously as you type in the search box. Another feature is called Instant search which enables the feature that displays the results as soon as the user writes the query. Two other options include the minimum word length to choose the minimum size of the word registered in search index and the list of blacklisted words.
