Adjusting SQ Site Search

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Been bending my head over this. I am trying to configure the site search engine built into 7.1. I find that it comes up with related products in the search results and tends to be a bit of a hit or a miss (also a bit slow and unresponsive to close-match search). 

By chance,  does anyone know how to configure the site search to show results in a grid format? Also, is there a way to have it stop redirecting to a separate search page?

I might be asking a bit too much out of this built-in search engine so if there is a better option, I am also open to it!

Thank you in advance!

I avoid the search bar, it has ongoing issues and is generally not great.

You may be better off with adding this functionality that includes search:

When using websites with fewer than ~100 items I've never found search very good unless you know exactly what you want, I generally think there are ways of getting people to the right product without search unless you're Amazon.
