@Tangkoko with your extension, does it JUST search CMS? Or does it replace default products-only search and ADD CMS search?

In other words, does this replace Magento’s search or is it an addition which we need to guide the customer to first?

I’d love to jsut use the Google/Yahoo/Bing search API and display non-product results in the right hand column at the same time:

Wow...I’m amazed there is only 1 extension that adds to the search functionality. I’m really surprised that Magento doesn’t have this built in already! I would think it would be on the top of the list.

This is a must for any serious web shop with information about their product beyond what is listed on the product page.

I’m really curious if the Search CMS module works with 1.4? Complete mistery to me, why it wasn’t implemented in the out-of-the-box installation of Magento since it’s pretty important…

Our site has both Magento and WordPress fused together, and the search functions for both cannot be combined. As a workaround for now, our search box just has a couple of radio buttons for Search Store or Search Site, and it appears to be working, but where do I change the message “Your search returns no results”? I would like to add to the message and maybe include a link to the sitemap. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

As an interim solution for common search requests against CMS pages (contact, faq, how do i, delivery issue, etc) you could use Magento’s search result definition in Admin to auto direct the user to the URL of your choice when a user searches for that particular word or phrase.

For those who didn’t understand or know how to get there:

Admin/Catalog/Search Terms - there you first search for the term and then edit it, where you can insert the url you want users to be redirected.

Really useful !

CMS Search PRO extension is fully compatible with magento 1.4 and allows to search in categories pages. More informations :
