WooCommerce : How to Search Product By SKU

I have recently come accross the problem searching all the products by their SKU, categories and tags. However, after digging through all the articles, forum and other reference, i have found a simple and effective way of doing advanced search for woocommerce site.

All you have to do is install a plugin called “Search Everything” by dancameron.


After activated the plugin at wordpress plugin, just go to the Options > Search Everything and configure the settings.

Search Everything Setting

Now you are ready to go and try search everything on your ecommerce site.


  1. Hi, can you still get “Search Everything” version 6.9 to find WooCommerce product categories. I can get it to find SKU’s but not product categories.

  2. Hi Terry, I made a quick plugin that will do a search for a product by sku. I tried using the search everything plugin and relenvassi but they don’t work if you have a variation type product with a certain sku and want the main product to be returned in the search rather than the variation. They also seemed a bit overkill and too much setup for what I wanted to do.

    Check it out at http://www.mattyl.co.uk/2012/12/11/woocommerce-plugin-to-search-products-by-sku/ (It will be on wordpress.org soon hopefully)

  3. Hi terry
    i tried this plugin and it works also with the category, just set on yes the option “highlights text”…

    but there is a problem…
    the shopbar sidebar doesnt appears…
    if i write in the search box a name of a category, the producs on this category appears correctly but the shop side bare on the left side no…
    maybe you know a little “trick” to fix this problem?
