How to Make Divi Search WooCommerce Products (No Coding)

Want to know how to make Divi search WooCommerce products?

It’s a problem that every WooCommerce store owner who uses Divi as their primary page builder needs to fix if they want to succeed online.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to enable search by WooCommerce products on your Divi site in a few simple steps.

Let’s dive into it!

Why Make Divi Search for WooCommerce Products

The default WordPress search engine is rather weak and isn’t the best choice if you’re looking to give your customers the positive user experience.

For example, it doesn’t:

  • consider product attributes when performing a search
  • allow your customers to search by product tags
  • pay attention to the product category
  • look for partial matches if there are no exact ones
  • collect any data on your visitors’ search activity
  • and many more…

The same goes for Divi search modules, as Divi is a pagebuilder plugin that uses the same default WordPress search engine.

Thankfully, there is a way to make search on your WooCommerce site way smarter and help your visitors find the product they’re looking for faster.

Let’s look at how you can do that in just a few clicks, with no need for coding or technical skills.

How to Make Divi Search for WooCommerce Products

The easiest and fastest way to make Divi search for WooCommerce products is to use SearchWP.

With that, let’s talk about how you can use SearchWP to make Divi search for WooCommerce products.

To do that, click the Sources & Settings button.
