Improve the browsing experience for visitors to your Picfair Store by incorporating a search bar, it's incredibly easy to use, here's how
What is the search bar for Picfair Stores?
Did you know that with your Picfair Store, you can also include a search bar in the Store Header so visitors can search for specific images?
It’s a fantastic feature to make use of. If a visitor is looking for something specific in your Picfair Store, the search bar tool can help them find it quickly and easily. It could make all the difference whether you’ll bag that sale, too.
The search functionality is particularly beneficial if you have an extensive set of images, such as a collection that covers a mix of different themes, subjects or topics.
Or, if you’re a sports photographer, for example, and want to have your images searchable by event so customers can find the relevant images easily. Also, if you have images detailing very specific things, such as names of locations, plants, people, etc., that are uniquely identifiable by specific words and terms.
How does the Search Bar work for Picfair Stores?
The search bar will pick up any words you’ve added to your images in the caption, title, or tag fields. As a reminder, these can be added to any image you’ve uploaded from your Image Library.
For an overview of how to add tags, titles and captions to your images, see our guide with instructions.
So, for example, if you uploaded an image that features the word "train” in either the caption, title or tags. When typing this into your store's search barm results will appear that feature the word "train"; see the example below.
Please note: The search functionality searches through all of your images. So, viewing a specific album page and using the search bar will bring up results from all images, not from within the album page you are viewing.
It’s incredibly easy, and your Search should automatically be enabled when you set up your store.
To enable the search bar, go to the “HEADER AND NAVIGATION” section of “STORE SETTINGS” on your Picfair Dashboard.
Scroll down to Search, and you see this option toggled to green, meaning it is enabled on your Store. If, for any reason, you want to turn off the search functionality, simply toggle off the green.
