Looking to upgrade my addon to never version. Will wait for discount coupon.
By the wait want to suggest additional features.


Live Search (new features suggestion):

1. Ignore article words (e.g.: the, a, an, or, and, for, etc.) – these words should be ignored when users search for products.

2. Include categories in search results (like searchnise). Combine both category and sub-category as a single link for better visibility.
Link example: SONY>Cameras>Video.

3. Add "S" to all product options by default. All product options should be displayed in search results with a “plural” searches (Ex. cables, batteries, etc.), because we can’t add keywords for product options.

4. BUG: incomplete duplication of searched words. Search words are recorded too fast, and it results in incomplete keywords that broken into separate parts.
Incomplete keywords example: cam, came, camer, camera. All these words are related to “camera” however they broken into separate parts due to system quick record.

We were having some issues with this add on and Cart-Power looked in to it for us. For some reason when a customer was typing in info nothing was dropping down and offering choices. Ended up being the new server we moved to did not have the "mb library for php" installed. Once I had the host install that all was well and search works on our site again.
Regards,
Jim

I'm sorry to say that I will have to change my mind on recommending this product. When this add-on did get turned on again by adding the missing library we found out that it was this add-on that was causing our server to give the following error "ABUSE HIGH LOAD/CPU USAGE". Sadly I was told by Cart Power that I needed to upgrade my server on a website that was already on a server with 5gb of ram but was doing good to get 2 or 3 orders a day. I guess I should also mention there are only about 200 items on the site but that really does not seem like it should be too many products.

BTW, the error was being cause when the daily dump was being done in to the /tmp folder.
Regards,
Jim

A lot of people uses it and we did not hear about similar problems. It is very strange situation on your server. May be, the cause, you rebuild cache often. You can try run it less often. We tried to help you to resolve this issue, but you bought add-on from another company and stop our communication for resolving.

We offered you extend your hosting plan, because we did not know what server you used. Now, we see that these recources must be enough. So, we guess, cause - frequently rebuilding the live search cache.

Does this addon need any configuration like rebuilding a search index or access to cron?
EDIT: nevermind. Found it.

We love this add-on in our MV shop with nearly 20k products!

I have a question though. We're working on upgrading to 4.3.3, and I've noticed that the new vendor catalog page search still uses the default search function. Will you be updating the add-on in the future so that the vendor specific searches also use live search?

CS-Cart 4.7.4 & CS-Cart Multi-Vendor 4.9.1

Hi Angeltown,

Thank you for your question. In the near future we are planning to make a redevelopment of CS-Cart Live Search Add-on, and we will take into account this function.

Great product. There are some issues with the log that I hope you could address in future versions:

 

  • The logs show many duplicate searches, obviously by the same user. Often with the same date/time. These duplicate searches can be exact duplicates or obviously the same search but a new character added to it for each instance. i.e. ja, jac, jack, jack d, jack da, jack dan, jack dani, jack danie, jack daniel, jack daniels
    This pollutes the log greatly and its hardly usable when most searches have a dozen of duplicates.
  • Search is used by both staff and customers. Only customer searches are interesting. Staff searches are noise when it comes to finding out what customers are searching for. Please consider to ignore or filter out searches by certain IP's.

 

For future versions it would be nice to see the most popular search phrases from the last month.

I agree with P-Pharma, a great product, one of the most useful add-ons we have. But also I agree that the current log could be improved, especially the duplicate searches

Given the fast speed in which Live Search presents results, I can see why the log entries are as they are. But it unfortunately renders the log as a management statistics tool (almost) useless. Please consider improving this aspect in a future version

Thanks in advance

Does this work with CS 4.2.?

Also, will it work with responsive theme?

Right now your site doesn't mention either.

 

We are sorry for the delay with answer. Yes, CS-Cart Live search add-on is compatible with CS-Cart version 4.2.x and correctly work with responsive theme.

Was looking at this, but the demo is extremely slow.  Really hard to test the addon as it is taking forever for anything to come up.

It works fast enough on a medium server. Its not superfast, but not slow either.

@cart-power the 'group by search phrase' function is very useful. This gives us some insight about searches.
Please consider to add a setting to 'count searches by the same user as 1' so that the same search by the same user is not counted as multiple searches.
Currently we dont know if there are many people searching for something or if its just the same person.

Seems that I'm using old version too. Any chance I can get a discount for upgrade? (used at http://boardgames-bg.com )
