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"

It runs as promised. I like speed, many options and no problem installation. Go for it if you want to improve customer experience of your site.

У нас не работает модуль, когда клиентт не вводит наименование товара, а вставляет его через копипаст. это достаточно частое явление, после чего мы теряем таких клиентов. Сегодня один из них обратился к нам с гневным письмом про отстойный сайт, на котором даже поиск не работает
Вы можете это исправить?
Также хотелось бы, чтобы Ваш модуль исправлял ошибки и не учитывал дефисы-тире-точки и прочее

Использую модуль в двух магазинах. Классный и удобный. Поиск не тормозит и функционален. Спасибо. Реально удобно пользоваться.

Используем данный модуль в нашем интернет-магазине спортивных товаров -
Работает хорошо, документация есть, в админке можно видеть то, что пользователи искали.
В общем, рекомендую!

Очень хороший и полезный модуль.
Я уверен, что эта функция поиска должна быть на любом сайте, особенно в интернет магазине.

Great addon. I have been using it for over a year and a half and haven't had any issues. The results of the search are much better than the out of box product and Cart Power's support has been great. Highly recommend this addon.

Addon was easily installed and works as expected. Great job. Absolutely worth the money. Thanks the team!
