Hey there,
after upgrading a test install, the biggest problem so far for me is, that using the normal search function I always get exactly 5307 results, no matter what I search for.
Advanced search seems to work quite well, normal one obviously doesn’t.
I rebuilt indexes, disabled modules, cleaned caches, tried the standard theme, so I’m running out of ideas.

Any help?

Hi there,

In fact, Magenta 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/magento-sphinx-search.html
