Search Autocomplete and Suggest by aheadWorks

Instant search
Deliver the most relevant search results to your store visitors after the third character is entered. The dropdown list shows items matching search terms and customers can easily navigate to the desired product by passing the search results page.

Instant Search

Suggest search keywords
With the Search Autocomplete and Suggest extension for Magento, your clients can view the list of suggestions based on the search term. A visitor can choose any suggested keyword and go to the search results page of the selected keyword.

Search by any product attribute
The Magento Search Suggestions module allows you to restrict search results by any text attribute: product name, description, SKU, meta data, etc.

Customizable search item layout
Give your clients a sneak peek of what they are looking for. Display product name, price, picture, and even a short description in the dropdown list. You can also configure the dimension of a product thumbnail from the admin panel to fit your store design.

Customizable Template

Set up text messages of the search result list
You can customize the text in the header and footer of the search results list. The module also gives you a possibility to specify your own message that will appear in the dropdown list if nothing is found.

Full control over the search results list

  • Limit items displayed in the dropdown list
    You can specify the number of products to be displayed in search results list. To see all products that match search terms, visitors should click the All Results button.
  • All Results Button

  • Sort search results in alphabetical order
    All the search suggestions are displayed in alphabetical order in dropdown list by default.
  • Hide ‘Out of Stock’ products
    The Magento Search Autocomplete and Suggest module allows you to show/hide out of stock products in the search results list.
  • Fully customizable look
    With a simple CSS editing, you can change any elements including colors, borders, paddings, etc.

Fast and convenient search

  • Powered with AJAX
    Magento Search Autocomplete makes your store search much faster as it is AJAX-based and doesn’t load your full database of products, only those that have been matched.
  • Search by tags
    If the option is enabled, your store visitors can perform search by any tags assigned to products.
  • Open search result link in a new window
    The administrator can easily decide whether a product page will be opened in a new window or the current page will be refreshed after a customer clicks the required product link in the dropdown list.
  • Customizable search delay
    The module allows you to configure search delay as a customer types.
  • Preloader picture
    You can add your own preloader image to the website. It will appear in the search box when a visitor starts typing.
  • Preloader Image

And much more…

  • Translation support
  • The module adds only new features without breaking or replacing store’s original functionality
  • Uses 100% pure JavaScript and CSS, no flash or other embedded content
  • Integration with Advanced Search by aheadWorks
