Hi,

Right now I have the search setup by product name, but I would also like to search by product description (or short description). Anyone know how can I do this?

Thanks,

Go to the admin -> catalog -> attributes -> manage attributes
And for attribute description manage fields: “Use in quick search” and “Use in advanced search”.
The same for short description and other attributes.

Hi In fact, Magentо search is not perfect. Very often a user doesn’t find what he was looking for and leaves the store. Good decision is to integrate the Sphinx search engine. It greatly improves the quality and relevance of search results. Look at: http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/sphinx-search-ultimate.html
