Hello everybody

My question:

I have a store with many products e.g. in elecotronic part like laptops, phones etc.

On top of my magento store i have also the mini search from magento.

The structure of my categories is:

Main
- Electronics
- PC
- Phone
- Product 1
- Product 2
- etc.

Now i would like this:

when i tip in the mini search field “Phone” i would like to see in the results site all Products under the Category “Phone”. How can i do this? maybe its very easy to impelment and i dont know how.

I thanks for the help from the community

the search use a fulltext flat table(categorysearch_fulltext) which aggregate all products info by category search indexer, what it dose basically is selecting all the major attributes from products into one text field,
so you can just customize the indexer to aggregate also the parent category info into this field
