If you run a really large Magento store, you definitely know how difficult it is for your customers to find something they require very fast. Advanced Search extension for Magento is a perfect solution to enhance store browsing experience. The extension uses an external search engine Sphinx. If you have 10000 products in your store, Advanced Search will help your customers to find those which are required. If you have 1000 posts in your blog, it's not a problem for Advanced Search as well.
How it works
Magento Advanced Search uses Sphinx. Sphinx is an open source full text search server. This powerful search engine is used by different popular websites, such as Craigslist.org, mysql.com, joomla.org, tumblr.com, Dailymotion.com. etc.
Just install Sphinx on your server, configure Advanced Search and enjoy. You won’t have to deal with complicated Sphinx configuration - Advanced Search will do everything for you.
Please note that installation service does not cover cronjob setup and/or Sphinx installation. You may need to contact your system administrator or hosting provider regarding the matter.
Easy search settings
Advanced Search extension for Magento configures Sphinx for you in accordance with your settings.
Sphinx supports many different API's, PHP, Python, Java, etc. So you can easily integrate an external application to perform search over Sphinx indexes.
With Sphinx installed on dedicated server, your search becomes even faster.
Sphinx has several different ways of matching the given search keywords, which can be set in the Match Mode field. It is possible to define whether the search results will match all query words, any of the query words, a phrase with perfect match, etc.
With the help of the module, you can enhance your store search functionality with one of the following options:
- Wildcard Search – lets your visitors find the required product by part of the word, e.g. they can find “sony” by “son”;
- Morphology processing - corrects all misspelled words according to Sphinx morphology dictionary.
Configure search and index in the most appropriate way for your store.
