hello

I would like to request the following search enhancements.

1). Fuzzy Search Logic

1). Accommodate spelling errors,
2). Alternate spellings,
3). Pluralizations etc. in search terms (or suggests likely alternatives).
Sensitivity should be adjustable.

2). To eliminate the ‘no results found’ plague, similar matches should be presented to a user when available.
for e.g.

You searched for : “gol bal”
Sorry, we could not find any matches for “gol bal”. Did you mean golf ball or gold ball?

3). Restrictions
*Searches should be restricted to categories manually or automatically based on what category a user is currently browsing

4). Shoppers should be able to search for products by name, SKU, brand name, description or any other defined product attribute

Any update on the addition of this feature?

It was mentioned in the blog here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/blog/inside-magento-7-product-search/

Synonyms should help but I haven’t tried it yet; the full fuzzy logic and plurals/singular would be great.

Thanks,

Adam

Hi

I’ve also been trying to find information on using Lucene with Magento.  Has there been any progress on this?  Has anyone got any experience integrating Lucene with Magento?

Cheers,

Mel
