Search settings change the type of results returned by storefront search and predictive search. Search settings can be overwritten by your published theme.
On this page
Search results: Choose what result types are requested for the search results page of your online store. The options that you can select are product, page and blog post results. By default, all result types are requested.
Predictive search results: Choose what result types are requested for the predictive search component of your online store. The options that you can select are product, page, blog post, collection and query results. By default, a request asks for query, product, collection and page results.
Out of-stock-products: Choose how to display results for unavailable products for both the search results page and predictive search. Out of stock products can be displayed, hidden or placed last in the returned results. The setting adjusts the behavior for both search and predictive search. By default, unavailable products are displayed after all other matching results.
Requirements and limitations
If your online store theme modifies the query parameters used in requests to the storefront search or predictive search endpoints, then the search settings are overwritten and aren't used. If the search settings changes aren't displayed in your store, then contact your theme's developer.
