Search Alias doesn't work in PS1.6


Recommended Posts

The facility to add aliases for search terms (Preferences > Search) doesn't work.

I'm using 1.6.1.24 on ubuntu 18.04.

I've rebuilt the entire index of products.

Has anybody got a solution for this? Does it work on 1.7?

Here are previous topics asking the same question:

Is there a workaround? A module I can buy?

Cheers

Rod

Dear Rod,

I managed to create a module that redirects specific search phrase into specific site. For example

"red t-shirt" will redirect to "yoursite.com/red-t-shirts"

"x size dress" could redirect to "yoursite.com/small-size-dresses"

you would need to add those redirections manually. Let me know in private message if you're interested.

Kind regards

Hi Rod,

That's what default PS alias functionality does.

If someone types "blouse" you see search results matching "blouse" keyword.

Without any alias, if someone types "blous" there are no results since it's not matching anything.

However if you add alias "blous" -> "blouse" in back office, when someone types "blous" he sees search results as if he typed "blouse".

I tested it and it was working, however it was not quite the functionality I wanted.

Maybe I should add wildcard option with redirection to my module, for example you could add search query:

"%blous%" that would match any query with "blous" keyword inside, that would either show search results for another keyword "blouse" for example or redirect to specified site.

If someone was interested I may add that.

Kind regards
