    No, there isn’t, unfortunately. The catalog is not a custom post type, so it’s unlikely to be found by default searches that query posts, pages, post types, etc. Additionally, even if it were to be found by a third-party search, the results would not at all be formatted how they need to be. It’s for this reason that we include a search widget, so you can place a catalog search box in any widgetized area of your site.

    Hi, thanks for youre response.
    i installed the WP Widget in Navigation Plugin and used the UPCP Search Widget. Works for me!!

    But one little thing….. i cant get the Submit Button of the UPCP Search Widget to the right side of the input field. Somebody got an Idea???

    Hi David,

    You should be able to use Custom CSS to modify elements like this. For example:

    .upcp-product-search-widget-div form {
        display: inline-block;
    }
    
    .upcp-widget-search-input,
    .upcp-widget-submit {
        float: left;
    }
    
    .upcp-widget-submit {
        margin: 15px;
    }

    OK, that works fine!! Thank you!!
    Now there is one little question left for me.
    Is it possible to connect the UPCP Widget with more than one Catalog URL ??
    Its important for me, because i use 3 Catalog on the page…

    Hi David,

    Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no option in the plugin to do so. A UPCP Search Widget can only connect to one specific catalog.
