Search Results Usability

I noticed when I do a search the layered navigation goes away when the search results are shown.
Is this just an area that has yet to be completed?
The layered navigation would be very helpful to narrow search results.
Also the choice to view as a grid or list isn’t available on search results.

Just a few items I noticed, Thanks

Rusty

One year and not even a single fast reply?

Well, I’m working on something like that.

I just posted an Enhanced Search module to the Magento Connect, but I’m still waiting for it to be approved.

I’m working on an Enhanced Search Pro module which will include that functionality.

Check out these extensions Search AutoComplete & Suggest Pro. They greatly improve the quality and relevance of search results: http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/search-autocomplete-suggestions.html

Hello,

you can also have a look at this extension http://amasty.com/search-pro.html. It will enable you to:

- Specify search priority for attributes
- Enable customers to easily find the necessary products
- Choose the search type – ‘like’, ‘fulltext’ or ‘combined’
- Highly-configurable autocomplete feature
