Miva Merchant 4 Module FAQs » Search Manager (BROK_SEARCH)

When I restrict a search to a particular category, it does not find products in sub-categories of that category. Why?

(2003/11/21)When you restrict a search to a single category, it will find only products in that category and will NOT find products in sub-categories of that category; that's simply the way it works. You can however, restrict the search to multiple categories by concatenating the category codes together. So if you want the search to find the products in FRUIT and all products in sub-categories of FRUIT, say APPLES and PEARS, you would need to restrict the search to the sub-categories as well. For example, a search of this form will find "juicy" in the name and description of products in those three subcategories:
