404 To Search

404 To Search is a smart extension to redirect all 404 pages on a store to Magento built-in search form.
You can create custom templates to parse URL's query strings deleting keys label and passing to search form only values.

404 To Search is fully multi-store compatible and support custom models to specifiy what parts of URL or query string have to be passed to search form.
Directives can be concatenated each other and are processed after Magento built-in rewrite rules, allowing you to keep manage specific single URL redirects on your own.

Redirect engine is based and fully compatible with Magento engine, and is configured to give a standard 301 HTTP status code (Permanent Redirect) on all requests.

Rated out of 5 by from Not so good.. Doesn't found any product because puts together words in the link or doesn't remove the underscore from search query so made your choice..

Rated out of 5 by from The extension's menu has an option that says "Search Template" and I suppose this is to tell the search which parts of the URL have to be taken. What are the possible "templates"? Where can we find some examples? Really good extension indeed.

Rated out of 5 by from Hi, great extension by the way. Just one issue I have noticed. In Magento 1.7 with the new HTML5 mobile template, the 404 to search extension completely removes the catalog categories.
