Search Feature on Basco Website Made Simple

We received feedback that the search feature on the Basco website was a little confusing –  so we updated it to give clearer results. Previously it showed the results in two tabs— and if there weren’t results with the first tab, a “Sorry” message appeared, making you think that no results existed.
Now when searching, you will see the number of pages returned for both the “Products” and “Pages” categories, or you will only see the results for one of the two categories. The “Sorry” message will only appear if there are absolutely no results to show in either category.
