Is there a way to include filters when a user does a product search?

No screenshot / URL provided with inquiry.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Not sure why I would need to include a screenshot and URL for such an enquiry. In OC 2.0.3.1 'filters' are not looked up by the standard search. I'm merely asking if there's a way to enable this.

Give us an example, what sort of filters do you mean? By category or brand?

Hi Paul,
I have created numerous filter groups such as gender, theme, style, chain length etc. Each filter group contains filters for example the 'style' group contains filters such as ravens, unicorns, angel's & demons etc

I have applied the relevant filters to each product. However; when I do a product search for 'ravens' using the standard search bar, it does not return all the products that have been applied the 'ravens' filter as I believe the database query is not set up to look in the filters table.

OK forced to do a work around. Luckily my friend is a bit of a php guru and has made me a script that adds the filter names to the product tags which the standard search includes in it's lookup.
