I am working on a Site where the customer has over 100 products.  Is there an easy way to set up a search field to search the products and bring up the product page so they can order that particular product rather than just the picture of the product, or something that does not lead to the purchase of the product.

Hi Philip,

There isn't a search add-on or plugin specific to Exchange.  You can find various search plugins (if you need one to do more than the built-in search feature in WordPress) on the WordPress plugin repository:  http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=Search

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise

Well trying to decide how to make it easy for people to find what they want, the built in search brings up pictures, not product pages, other searches don't bring up the product pages either - Just related terms associated with the pictures.  I guess I will experiment and test different plugins.

Hey Philip,

When I try the using the built-in search option, it doesn't bring up the actual product pages, but it brings up the list of products with the search term I used.

It doesn't show images for me, just the product titles.  I'm not sure what would be causing the your search to come up like it is.  

You should be able to find a plugin that will work for you however.

Thanks,

Elise
