I am using the block, not the tab. But I guess it makes sense that it will be slow with the amount of products I have.

I also understand the issue with the amount of requests it would take to generate the list. But if it's a CRON job of some sort, then it will all happen on the server right? Would that still be a problem?

Ok, now the accuracy of matched products works great! I put match 4 keywords and it brings exactly what it should. However the speed is still an issue when you have so many items. Without the addon, the product page loads in 1-2 seconds. With it enabled, it loads in 20-30 seconds.

I think the only way to speed this up would be to put an option inside the addon preferences to "BATCH PROCESS" the Related Products. It will run and create all the relations and store them in a field for each item. Then when you load the item page, instead of it running the intensive query, it will just pull those items from a list.

What do you think?

I see that you guys updated the add-on and included my suggestions. I thank you for that. How do I get the updated version? Just re-download the addon from the file area?

If this is the case, then you should issue a refund and then I will purchase the addon again, once the changes have been implemented and it's working as advertised.

"As you know, the add-on has been launched not long ago. And the main idea was to set up/define related products manually and using tags." This is bs! The name of the add-on is "Automatic Cross-selling addon". The key word here is automatic, and now you are saying things should be done manually. I wouldn't need your addon then. You also called people who want things to be done automatically, LAZY, in your email. Which is extremely disrespectful. If you advertise something in your product and it's not delivering, then you should issue a refund. My server is not slow. It's a dedicated server running Lightspeed with SSD drives. If you think that's slow then you are clueless. Everything is fast.

Regarding, contacting with ideas and requests....I did twice! You ignored my requests and ideas. I suggested that the automatic features may work as advertised, if you guys did the following. Using search words, or the product name, whichever options, make it so there is an option for "Match 3 or more search words". That way it will be far more accurate and the results will be much faster. You can also add a batch processing, so that the function runs and updates the database with the Related Products. This doesn't need to be done every time the product page loads. Instead it will then read the already pre-processed list or whatever. It will be much faster.

If you can do something similar, then it will be truly automatic.

By the way, I would love to hear from anyone who has successfully used this plugin on their website, without manually entering tags. I seriously doubt anyone did.
