Searching for product with typing error of keywords
« on: December 05, 2016, 12:31:50 pm »
Hello,

Please, can anyone help me with that issue - Many of my customers are searching for product in my perfume eshop with wrong keywords. To example somebody is looking for perfume Dior FahrenhEit, but he type instead it in searching field Dior FahrenhAit (A instead of E). So searching find 0 results because of that mistake. But customer dont know he made mistake, he think that there is no perfume fahrenheit in my eshop...
Is any possibility to set searching in that way to find right result for keywords with typing error?

Thank you very much and have a nice day :)

I have VirtueMart 3.0.18 and Joomla 3.6.4

For Joomla sites where I need a search facility that allows for misspellings I use a Google search component. I have not used oit on a VM site, but see no reason why it should not work.  https://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension/search-a-indexing/web-search/googlesearch-cse-component
