About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by simtech

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 85 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Experience After doing research about what's on the market for auto-complete extensions, I decided to install 'searchanise', because of the good features, price and positive reviews. I just installed in into my testing environment and had this up-and-running within minutes, including full indexing! I must say this is just an excellent extension and i'm happy to have this for free. I'll install it in the production environment very soon and once our shop grows bigger we'll definitely go for the paid pro-version! Small business - > Free extension -> Growing business -> Paid functionality. I love this method and wish all developers would do this. @magentoconnect, why don't you use it here? No autocomplete and this one is the best! May 20, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by dosent work on custom themes I am using a theme from halothemes ( https://www.halothemes.com/amember/content/f/id/38/ ) on 1.8.1 but it dosent work this theme. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best solution ever for search! Using searchanize is like using google search. I think it actually has a brain hidden in there somewhere :) Customer satisfaction is unprecedented and the product is flawless. The best part is, the developer offers you both free and paid versions and the differences are minor. Even the free version is fully functional, if you are comfortable with the small searchanize branding below the search box plus a few other small tweaks. The search is all cloud based, so your server breathes better as well. Excellent product! May 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Works great until you want to uninstall. I installed this extension on our development server using the IP address associated with it. When it was time to go live and we moved into production using our live domain/url, the extension would not pick up the domain. Even after multiple incidents of reindexing, it kept using the IP and, therefore, produced nothing but 404 errors. I uninstalled and then reinstalled but that didn't help because THIS EXTENSION LEAVES TABLES EVEN AFTER UNINASTALL. I uninstalled and removed the old tables and then tried to reinstall again. It took my entire site down because it was LOOKING for the tables! Why would installing an extension not recreate the tables needed? Support told me I needed to upgrade to the paid version if I wanted them to look into it. I understand that support shouldn't be free, but this is a case where they have a bug in their extension that I believe I helped discover that should be repaired. May 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Espetacular O plugin funciona de forma excelente, ele faz com que as buscas na loja sejam perfeitas em termos de resultados! May 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended This is so much better than the standard magento search. It looks good and it works well. I will be using this on all my stores from now on. April 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 404 error 404 error after installation. I can't use that. how can i do? April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Auto Search Extension Absolutely brilliant extension, simple to use and works out the box in minutes. Does everything you need and in the latest release allows even more customisation with CSS & other various settings. Support is great and they will go the extra mile for anyone with issues (like I had in my last install when I manually changed loads of code!). April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by UPDATE TO MY PRIOR REVIEW I left bad marks prior as I had problems installing-comments were left from the developer and all is well. I haven't explored all the options, but from what I see THIS IS AWESOME. I've tried a few search/autocomplete plugins, this is the best PLEASE NOTE: (problem I had) "It is very important to disable the Magento compilation before installing the Searchanise" INSTALL INFO HERE- http://docs.searchanise.com/connector_addon/magento.html I'm not affiliated with the developer, however, I do feel I must correct my earlier post April 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wiped out my site I could not get this to work. I installed and reinstalled 3 times. Cleared cache,logged out, etc. I could not get back into my admin panel-not even an error, I came to a totally blank page. Looks like a worthwhile plugin that I wish I could try April 4, 2014

Answer: 
Hi,

Sorry, I can't quite understand what you mean. Searchanise uses the same product URLs as your store would normally use, it doesn't invent any new URL schemes.

So, if your store is configured to include category name in product URL, Searchanise will use this kind of URL.

Answer: 
Check the cron settings of your store. You either do not have cron periodic jobs running at all, or cron schedule is too sparse.

Follow the Scheduled Sync guide in our docs—http://docs.searchanise.com/en/latest/connector_addon/magento.html#scheduled-sync

Answer: 
In order to display Special price instead of regular price, uncomment the lines:

// if use special withnout "From Date" and "To Date"
// $specialPrice = $product->getData('special_price');
// if ($specialPrice != '') {
// $price = $specialPrice;
// }

Answer: 
Hi!

These white borders are just a side-effect of how Magento generates images.

In the future versions, we will override this behavior to provide nice and clean thumbnails without any borders.

Hello,

If no results are found, there should appear a respective message, check for example this store http://pro.totalbeauty-shop.be/catalogsearch/result/?q=xxcxcxcxc

As you can see, no 404 page is returned, so there must be something with your settings.

Answer: 
Hi Searchanise,

These are SOFT 404s, not regular 404s. The problem is not in what the user sees. It means that the extension seems to be telling the server that no such page exists, but it doesn't serve a regular 404 page. It creates a problem with search engines, which look at soft 404s as a website programming issue and a measure of website quality.

Search engine URLs listed in the Searchanise admin panel are just names assigned on registration.

They serve only to distinct engines from one another, and do not affect the actual functioning of the service.

This confusing disambiguation may be resolved in the future.
