I have major issue, when i try to type products name in quick search its return no products, same name typed by advanced search its good, also return products.
Note : visibility - catalog,search; qty - enough qty; proper cached and reindex,still not working. am not using third party search extension, using still default magento extension.
In order to define which product attributes will be considered during search, you have to go to Catalog -> Attributes -> Manage Attributes. Click on, for example, "name" attribute in order to edit it. You 'll notice two properties, called:
- Use in Quick Search
- Use in Advanced Search
In order to be used in both search functionalities, you have to modify both properties to "Yes". That's major difference which contributes to discrepancy between results in quick search and advanced search.
At the end, run catalog search reindex in order to be sure that everything is ready.
You can do it from command line by typing:
php shell/indexed.php --reindex catalogsearch_fulltext
