Search Products

Hi.

I've used search lots of times, but my first with products;

My form;

<perch:form id="search" method="get" action="/search">
    <div class="clearfix">
        <perch:label for="q"></perch:label>
        <div class="col-xs-8 col-sm-8 no-padding">
            <perch:input type="search" id="q" placeholder="search products" />
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-4 col-sm-4 no-padding">
            <perch:input type="submit" id="g" value="Search" />
        </div>
    </div>
</perch:form>

my results;

<perch:before>
    <h1>Search results for &#8220;<perch:search id="search_key" />&#8221;</h1>

    <perch:if exists="paging">
        <p><perch:search id="total" /> results</p>
    </perch:if>
        <ul>
</perch:before>

        <li class="<perch:search id="perch_item_odd" />">
            <h2><a href="<perch:search id="result_url" />"><perch:search id="result_title" /></a></h2>
            <perch:if exists="result_excerpt"><p class="excerpt">&hellip;<perch:search id="result_excerpt" encode="false" />&hellip;</p></perch:if>
            <p><a href="<perch:search id="result_url" />">
                <perch:if exists="result_pageNavText">
                    <perch:search id="result_pageNavText" />
                <perch:else />
                    <perch:search id="result_url" />
                </perch:if>
                </a></p>
        </li>

        <div class="line-divider"></div>

<perch:after>
    </ul>

    <perch:if exists="paging">
        <div class="paging">
            Page <perch:search id="current_page" /> of <perch:search id="number_of_pages" />
            <perch:if exists="not_first_page">
                <a href="<perch:search id="prev_url" encode="false" />">Previous</a>
            </perch:if>
            <perch:if exists="not_last_page">
                <a href="<perch:search id="next_url" encode="false" />">Next</a>
            </perch:if>
        </div>
    </perch:if>
</perch:after>


<perch:noresults>
    <perch:if exists="search_key">
        <h1>Search results for &#8220;<perch:search id="search_key" />&#8221;</h1>
    <perch:else />
        <h1>Search</h1>
    </perch:if>
    <perch:if exists="search_key">
        <p>Sorry, there are no results for &#8220;<perch:search id="search_key" />&#8221;.</p>
    </perch:if>
</perch:noresults>

called by;

<?php $query = perch_get('q'); perch_content_search($query, array( 
                    'count'=>12, 
                    'from-path' => '/shop', 
                    'apps' => ['PerchShop'],
                    )); 
                ?>

But I'm getting 12 results searching for a product all with shop/product/[slug:product] as the url. Any I missing something??

How many products do you have?

The client is still adding, at the moment 25.

So do you think that fewer products should match your query? I'm a bit lost.

I was expecting 1, but I get 9 and only the first contains the excerpt, the rest just the tile and link.

Below is a screenshot screenshot

Its more about the link though, being just being shop/product/[slug:product] rather than the url

Are the others the variants?

Ah, I see, yes, thats the variants in the search. In that case;

  1. Can variants be removed from search results

  2. How do I get the url, rather than just shop/product/[slug:product]

Where is the shop/product/[slug:product] coming from?

If think its taken it from the Product URL in settings

Drew McLellan

I think it should be something like /shop/product/{productSlug}

Thanks. I've changed that, but the search now lists the urls as /shop/product/ which just goes to an empty page, am I missing something to get the full urls for the search results?

Ah, sorry, try /shop/product/{slug}

Thanks. That's got it.

Anything I can do to exclude the variants from the search?

I don't think so - I'll have a look into it.
