Searchbar abilities

Good morning,
I have been struggling with this for a while and I can not seem to find out the answer. Here is the scenario: I am creating a website that allows people to sell and buy things. The issue is that the search bar is not working. Here are the pictures: Don’t mind the items. They were tests so they don’t make sense.

Issue: When I search up Toast, it gives me a dropdown of the actual item named “Toast” but when I click on it, it brings the whole list of items which makes no sense.
Also, when i type something in the search bar and click away-it erases what I types up

What I want: Is to be able to search for an item, I am not limited to 1 item in the drop down but I have several options. Like eBay. You don’t type camera and get only one, you get all that include a piece of the word “camera” in it. I am not a coder

Not have the search bar delete everything when I click away from it

The main issue here is the element you’re using. That searchbar is meant to return items that match your search expression in the auto-complete portion only. Selecting one means you’re choosing that specific item.

You’re better off using a regular input so that a user can freely type in whatever they want and your repeating group can go off of that.

OR, you can try out the Search & Autocorrect plugin, which is a combo of both. Here’s a video that should help understand the setup: https://youtu.be/gF8mpZtfWLU
