hello everyone

I have reached an unusual point with my magneto store. it appears that when customers search for a specific item on quick search, the wrong results appear that have nothing to do with what they have in putted, I have tried re-indexing all in index management, I have cleared the cache, I have even deleted all my search terms that have been saved over time and this doesn’t make a difference.

I am running 1.6.0.0 but I was also experiencing the same issue in 1.5.0.0 and I havent copied any app files from previous versions, the only thing I copy over when I update is the skin & media folders.

Please can anyone help me with this problem? or has anybody experienced the same issue?

regards

Steve

In 1.5 the Like search logic got changed to OR which, TaDa! produces more results as it produces a match for everything that has Term A or Term B or Term C ad infinitum…

Change back to AND and it should work a bit better.

Instructions Here...

Flush cache and rebuild fulltext search index after making the change.
