Hi there,

Is there an option for products to still get found if the user misspell the name of the product? For example, if they search for Guess but instead type Huess, Guess products would still display?

Thanks!!

Hi,

No there is no such mechanism in the HikaShop filter system not the Joomla search system.
You would have to use something more advanced.
You're talking about fuzzy search: www.itoctopus.com/how-to-handle-spelling...es-in-joomlas-search
As you can read there, it's hard to implement, would slow down the search, etc.
I think that something like extensions.joomla.org/extension/geek-elasticsearch/ might be able to do that. You would have to check with them.
Otherwise, you also have Google's search with something like that: extensions.joomla.org/extension/googlesearch-cse-component/
Google does support fuzzy search, of course, so that's really the simplest and most powerful solution to support fuzzy search on your website.
