Searching Category Descriptions as well as product


Recommended Posts

I have category descriptions installed, and my long descriptions are all contained within the categories rather than within the products. Does anyone know a good way to search the category descriptions as well as the product ones?

I installed that contribution but it's not running at this very moment so I can't test it for you. I thought the contribution included code to update the advanced search feature and maybe the standard search feature as well, in fact I'm sure it did. The best thing to do id throw in a unique word like "xxxx" in one of your short descriptions and try both the normal and advanced search. You may be in for a surprise.

Please ignore the above reply. I had categories text mixed up with brief product description.


You will have to extend the db query in advanced_search_result.php. It covers both search boxes.
