I’m trying to achive a autocomplete section that lists all product attribute values that match the entered text. In my case, producers, i.e. each product has an attribute producer, and when someone searches for a producer name, this should be shown in the section, and when you click on it, the relevant instant search page with the producer pre-facted should open. (imagin someone typing “B”, it would show Bentley and BMW, which you could click then)
I thought, this is exactly what “Additional Sections” is made for. So I added the attribute from the dropdown, gave a name and saved. However nohting is shown when searching for a producer.
For testing, I placed producer above pages (which is working fine). Categories is also working fine. In debug mode, I can now see that aa-dataset-1, which I think is supposed to be the attribute.phtml of the hit for producer is empty. aa-dataset-2 is pages content.
Instant search faceting for this attributes works just fine.
Where is the flay in my logic?
