Magento’s default catalog search can be a powerful tool. Its versatility is something every customer can appreciate.
One of the coolest features of the built-in advanced search is the ability to search by attributes assigned to a product. But what if your client’s plans for search are a bit different, and advanced search is too cluttered for his or her needs? You will see the search feature is not sufficient in that case.
Here we will visit two ways to add advanced search to your Magento store. One of them is a plugin method while the other does not involve using a plugin.
