Might not be exactly a bug, but it seems to me that it is rather confusing for visitors and that there should be an option to change it.
The default site search (header, standard sidebars) does not find products. So if a "normal" user, who usually will not comprehend the logic behind having to separate search indices on one site, searches for "ring blue" in the header search box, he will be told there is nothing like that on the site - and he will leave. Which of course is not the intended result.
Is there any way to either
- change the default search behaviour to include products and product attributes
- make it possible to replace the internal search with a plugin like Relevanssi that enables a weighted search across all posts, pages, custom post types, etc.pp. Usually this works out of the box, but with Abundance the search seems to slightly different from "normal" WP installs, since standard search is still used even after Relevanssi is installed and set to active.
