    Not having a search facility available as an app, especially when you obviously have one yourself, is not really acceptable on a premium package.

    The payapp ones require me to publish my site before they work. Well, sorry but I'm not ready to do that.

    Please could you provide a clear answer: are you going to provide search, if so, when and if not, why?

    Please don't refer me to the answer you have already given.

    Many thanks.

      Hi there,


      Thank you for your input. I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you.


      Unfortunately, we can't provide an ETA for the release of our new features.

      For the meantime, I recommend trying the search apps on the App Market, even if only after publishing your site. You may find one of the apps useful to you.


      Feel free to follow this thread by clicking on "Follow this topic" in the first post above. We'll update this thread the moment we have new information regarding this feature.

      All the best, Or - Wix support team.

    I think a search bar would be one of the basics that WIX needs to provide.

      Especially when you pay for a premium site!

    Yes a search bar is definitely necessary. I have noticed that when you add a new page and click the button to change the name of the page it comes up with a question asking for keywords!! So why do we not have a search bar yet!! It is hugely needed by a lot of us as I can see and should be in the next update of this software!!!

      Hi jadecoupernz,

      Thank you for your feedback! 


      The 'keywords' field in the page settings is related to search engine optimization (and so are the title and description fields). Click here to learn more about these fields, which are referred to as Meta Tags. 


      Please feel free to contact us again for any additional feedback you may have or for any assistance.

      wix... Please develop your own software for a really, really good search bar and breadcrumbs... We all know that you are able to do this because of other things that you have done for us to use on our websites...

      At the moment, the only search bars available appear in at the top of this thread.

    You need to create a search bar. The apps you offer are no good.  I actually don't understand how you haven't created one yet given the fact that I had to search for a search bar in your search bar. Argh!!!

      Hi there,


      Thanks a lot for your input.

      I apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you. Please elaborate - which of the apps have you tried and what capabilities do you believe they lack?

    search store app sucks.

    I notice the search on my store only searches the main categories. Is there a way to make it search for words or numbers ?
    The search bar you use when you are managing your store (when you click on 'add photo' ) works great. Why can't we have this one as well for our customers?
    I lose potential sales as people can't be bothered scrolling through 100 plus items looking for the one they want.

      I have merged your question with the relevant post. Please read the Best Reply herein above.


      Currently search apps are third-party apps only, thus if they only provide results for product titles and not for product descriptions, we cannot provide support for their functionality.


      Thank you for your input.

      All the best, Or
