New customizations introduced to storefront search
- You can set up your store search to work with words that don't have a complete ending. For example, if a customer searches for
sno, then the search returns results that include the incomplete word like
snowboard. To set this up, you add a prefix on the last term to enable partial word matches with the prefix parameter. This is only available to merchants who have their store’s locale set to English.
- Out of stock products will now be shown last on the search results page. There are options to hide out of stock products completely, or show them together with available products.
These customizations can be done through liquid and tutorials are available for reference in our Shopify Help Center.
