We have been talking about it in Facebook and Twitter for several weeks. And finally today we are ready to release it - the Advanced Search Magento extension which replaces native search with Sphinx, an external search engine.
Search 100 000 inventory items, 10 000 blog posts is not a problem now
Advanced Search is a perfect solution for search through Magento-based stores. If you have 10000 products in your store, our bran new extension will help your customers to find those which are required. If you have 1000 posts in your blog from aheadworks, it's not a problem for Advanced Search as well.
How it works
Advanced Search uses Sphinx. Sphinx is an open source full text search server. This powerful search engine is used by different popular websites, such as Craigslist.org, mysql.com, joomla.org, tumblr.com, Dailymotion.com. etc.
Just install Sphinx on your server, configure Advanced Search and enjoy. You won't have to deal with complicated Sphinx configuration - Advanced Search will do everything for you.
Easy search settings
The Advanced Search Magento extension configures Sphinx for you in accordance with your settings.
Sphinx supports many different API's, PHP, Python, Java, etc. So you can easily integrate an external application to perform search over Sphinx indexes.
With Sphinx installed on dedicated server, your search becomes even faster.
Sphinx has several different ways of matching the given search keywords, which can be set in the Match Mode field. It is possible to define whether the search results will match all query words, any of the query words, a phrase with perfect match, etc.
With the help of the module, you can enhance your store search functionality with one of the following options:
Configure search and index in the most appropriate way for your store
Different products are sold in different stores and they all need different search. If search by manufacturer is primary in your store, just define the higher weight for corresponding attribute.
