Search Returns No Results

The search feature does not appear to be working. A search for 'swimming goggles' returns no results when nearly all of the products have been tagged with this keyphrase.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Hello digital.dimages

    Are you using the Global Site Search plugin? If you are then you need to ensure that you have the Post Indexer Installed. Also note that it won't index anything pre-install.

    Wordpress search is just plain lousy :slight_frown:

    Have you checked out the Marketpress tag shorcodes? They may help as well :slight_smile: Especially with a niche store!

    Best,

    Kimberly

    Thank you for the information. I installed post indexer and the global site search plugins. I have a couple of questions.

    1. Do I have to re-post all of the products in order for them to be indexed, or is there a way to tell post indexer they are there?

    2. After installing the plugins, I get the following error when I try to manage any of the pages or posts:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_blog_status() in /home/swimlvrs/public_html/wp-content/plugins/post-indexer/post-indexer.php on line 225

    Additionally, the menu bar at the top of the admin area has disappeared.

    I have the following plugins installed:
    All in One SEO Pack
    Global Site Search
    MarketPress
    Portfolio Slideshow
    Post Indexer
    TinyMCE Advanced
    Visual Form Builder
    WordPress Backup to Dropbox
    WPMU DEV Update Notifications

    I disabled all but the following, and the error continues:
    Global Site Search
    MarketPress
    Post Indexer
    WPMU DEV Update Notifications

    Any suggestions?

Thank NAME, for their help.
