when I input SKU’s for custom options, the magento search does not return results if I search for those SKU #’s.  How would I go about setting up magento to do that?

Thank you,
Kevin

I would advise you to try Advanced Search. It replaces standard Magento search as it uses Sphinx, an external search engine.

It searches through the catalog as well as blog posts. There’s ability for you to define the higher weight for different attributes e.g. SKU, name, description.

You can find the complete information about Advanced Search and comparison table of those two extensions you can find on the product page: http://ecommerce.aheadworks.com/magento-extensions/advanced-search.html

For reference, unfortunately the last two posts did not read the question properly, as usual. This is not built in to Magento, you cannot by default search by custom option sku or by configurble/bundle/grouped attributes. We use a third party solution to perform these child value searches which is compatible with internal Magento and Solr search.

Although not the perfect solution, the way I got around this for now, is to use Magento layered navigation to improve searching by products options (prices, colors, sizes, categories, brands …. ).Our extensions will help your customers search desiring products easily and quickly.
