Get the add-on

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"

This is by far one of the most useful add-ons I have ever purchased anywhere! It elegantly adds to the existing search engine while giving you back end search history and cache. Searching for products by our clients now actually works intelligently. The support from Cart Power is always outstanding, when you do have a problem they usually fix it within 24 hours or less, with no complaints.

Thank you for the great add-on Cart-Power!!

A very nice add-on. It is a nice addition for our website visitors to find their desired products.
Please remember to re-build the index every time you have made significant changes.

I worked directly with cart-power developer when I requested to add additional features such as “search by product options” and “stop words”. I have personally done all tests against bugs, so now this addon is outstanding with lots of features comparing to other similar addons. The search results become more relevant after we add “stop words“.

In terms of service provided - it was fast and responsive. Thanks cart-power, A+
