Best search add on (on my server)?

 

​The standard CS cart search function does not work well and I am thinking about adding an add on that will be on my server - so not a third party cloud service...

 

​The tech add ons that provide a completion of a search (type blu and it suggests blue products)  are interesting but what I really need is a good search feature that will return good search results.

 

Example:

 

Customer types "blue extra long widget"

 

All blue extra long widgets are shown but no normal sized blue widgets.

 

Also no blue and red widgets.

 

​i realize that no search add on will be perfect but any ideas on good ones?

 

Speed is not a big issue as I only have about 10,000 products and rarely two or more customers at the same time and I have a dedicated server.

 

Thank you!

You could try this add-on by Cart-Power

 

https://marketplace....ch-add-on.html 

 

It does mention the following which might be what you're after:

 

 

 

  • Can search by all textual data about 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).
  • Searches by words or phrases

IT has over 30 reviews and I also use it. It's good.
