Live Search

The fastest and the most feature-rich search for your online store.

The Live Search add-on is a free-of-a-monthly-fee alternative to cloud search services.

Clustering caching system provides maximum search speed in stores with a large number of products.

The search history will help to analyse the search activity in your store, add suggestions and recommendations displayed in the search results, and get rid of the zero search results.

Customizable look and feel of the Live Search will make the search simple and convenient, and your clients will see only relevant search results thanks to the fine search conditions tuning.

What the Live Search Add-on Does

Not just searches products but leads the customer to a purchase

  • An animation in the search bar motivates to enter a search query;


  • When you start entering a search query, it shows the Suggestions with possible variants for the ending of the search query;




  • Filters the search results by category right in the live search window




  • The Featured products section in the search results increases the chance to sell them;





  • The Add to cart / Add to comparison list / Add to wish list buttons right in the search results reduce the number of steps to the purchase;




  • For products with options, instead of adding to the cart, a preview window opens to select options;




  • It shows common products of vendors as one product or separate products of different vendors (in CS-Cart Multi-Vendor edition).



Improves overall search performance

  • Offers corrected suggestions for misspelled search queries thanks to integration with Yandex.Speller service;




  • Understands synonyms (saved synonyms, word spellings, abbreviations) and can start searching them without waiting for the whole word to be entered;





  • Can ignore certain symbols/characters in search queries. For example, you can ignore quotes (“”) in the request.




Makes the search results more relevant to the clients request:

  • Can search by all textual data fields of a product (Name, Short description, Full description, Meta keywords, Options, Features, Languages, Search words, Stop words, Product code, Meta description, Price, Time of creation, Status, Popularity , Product code for combinations of options, Vendor name);




  • Can search not only by products, but also by store pages, Blog and Power Blog articles (Cart-Power: Power Blog add-on);




  • Searches by words or phrases;




  • 6 variants for sorting products in the search results (by date of creation, popularity, priority fields, price Low to High, price High to Low, product name A-Z);




The most advanced sorting by “Fields weight” allows you to flexibly customize the order in which search results are displayed.




  • Stop words functionality for products, to exclude product from the search results;




Extended search history and other helpful functions for store Administrator

  • Records search history for further analysis and search results correction. Find the search requests that did not return the results and improve the situation by adding suggestions and synonyms for search phrases. For your convenience the search history can be displayed in full, grouped by search phrases or by clicks on products in the search results, as well as imported and exported.




  • Automatic generation of search suggestions from the search history;




  • Separate page and CRON script for generating the Live Search cache on a schedule;




  • Access restrictions for user groups to view and manage Live search.




Saves your server resources

  • You can set a Search delay - giving your client time to type in a search phrase;



  • Uses Ajax technology (sends only one request after the buyer completes entering the search phrase).


Increases search speed

  • Use of the Cache;
  • Index the product data (for the stores with a large product database only);




  • The search request is sent automatically when the buyer completes the search phrase;
  • You can disable search by full and short descriptions to speed up the search.




Fits your website design

  • Choose elements to include in the search results: product images, product code, new and old price, taxes, categories, brands, suggestions, featured products;




  • Set colors for the elements so that they do not stand out from the design of your site;




  • In the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Ultimate version the settings are divided by storefronts - you can customize each store separately.

Works correctly with YOUPI and UniTheme.

Excellent work, super fast search on huge catalog!
It's very complete add-on
Jim Bullen
Excellent live search that you can customize the weights of terms, filters and much much more. Good Cache features and no need to pay monthly fees to get great search results.
There was an issue with my installation but Vladimir and his team got it sorted out fairly quickly.
Don't pay monthly fees for the competitors services, buy this and you will not be disappointed
- Много настроек.
- Поддерживает работу "Мотивации поиска"
- Дизайн поисковой выдачи при наборе слова.(ужасен и не настраивается - смутил шрифт названия товара, вид цены и артикула)
- Нет возможности указать количество при добавлении в корзину.
- При нажатии Enter не переходит к основному поиску.
Купили, протестировали 3 дня, отключили и более не планируем использовать.
Гибкая настройка модуля, правда для корректной работы требует изучения мануала и тестирования, особенно если товар технически сложный (как у нас).
Есть поиск по артикулам, описаниям, характеристикам.
Можно настраивать свои подсказки и список запросов (когда пишут с ошибками или не в той раскладке), также есть встроенный словарь.
Не всегда можно понять, как настроить приоритет полей для технически сложных товаров, только тесты помогают.
В целом рекомендую модуль к покупке

CartPower provides an excellent service
Small issues are being fixed fast
The Add-On works great and is easy to understand.
Александр Ревуцкий
Быстро работает.
Можно выставить приоритет поиска - например по артикулам или словам.
Поиск по категориям.
Можно из поиска сразу положить в корзину или добавить в сравнение и избранное.
Приятный и настраиваемый дизайм.
