The Live Search add-on is a sophisticated module which allows your customers to search products using a simple search form and receive the results instantly with the help of Ajax technology. The search process will not overload your server because the add-on sends one request only after a customer has typed the particular number of characters. You may specify this number in the add-on settings in the store administration panel. Also we developed special cache system to optimize search process. We tested this search functionality in the store with 35 000 products which translated into 24 languages. We recommend you to see the video tutorial prepared for this add-on.
Please do not forget to rebuild cache after add-on is installed. Go to Admin panel top menu > Live search > Live search cache and click the Rebuild cache button.
We also recommend you to configure cron job for cache rebuilding. Just add the following command in Cron Jobs: wget -q "http://YOUR_DOMAIN/live_search_cache_creation.php?password=PASSWORD"
