Does anyone know how to change the default search results Magento returns. Currently, the search box on the homepage seems to be searching the product name as well as description and some other attributes. I’ve tried the following:

1. Log into admin pages
2. Go to Catalog->Attributes->Manage Attributes
3. Set “use in quick search” to “No” for every attribute other than ‘Name’
4. Go to Catalog->Search
5. Select all search queries and delete them

This still searches on more than just the product name. I want to restrict the default search to just the product name and nothing else. Can anyone help me out with that?

Using Magento 1.3.2.4.

I managed to sort this. Just needed to go to System->Cache Management and rebuild the search index.

Check out these extensions Search AutoComplete & Suggest Pro.  They greatly improve the quality and relevance of search results: http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/search-autocomplete-suggestions.html
