Overview

Search Autocomplete and Suggest by aheadWorks

Instant search
With the Magento Search Autocomplete and Suggest extension, you can let visitors save time when they are upon the look of the required item. 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

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by aheadWorks

Search Autocomplete and Suggest by aheadWorks 5 5 14 14
This review is based on using this particular module for over 6 months on a production site. I looked up a lot of other similar modules before settling for this one .. and even though this was pricier than others, I am happy that I chose it. The module works as advertised, but also not a hair more. And if you want to add even a little bit of functionality, then prepare yourself on paying good amount to them. So it is imperative that you clarify the exact functionality of the module before you purchase it. Installation is straight forward and I don't remember any problems with it. But the best part has to be their support, which is simply top notch. The module was giving me problems with IE6, and even though it did take the support team sometime to fix it, they were eventually able to fix the problem. They also offered me the 3.0 upgrade from my 2.2 version free of cost. I would definitely recommend this module to anyone who wants to add this much needed functionality to their website.

Thank you for the excellent support. The guys from aheadworks fixed every problem i had to make the extension work properly within my shop-template. Highly recommend. June 21, 2011
I love this! It worked the first time and continues to work just great. It's a great way to show your customers that you're up-to-date. Developers are very responsive. November 17, 2010
I believe it's a real nice extension alltough is struggles with some CSS isues when you use a Templetemonster template. August 7, 2010

Answer: 
Hello!

The Search Autocomplete And Suggest extension allows using multiple attributes as search targets.
However, if your idea is to have 2 separate search boxes, it is not possible with our extension: the module will still work through the native Magento search bar.
Thank you.

I have seen some similar extensions, where auto-suggest is working, when "Use flat product catalog" is set to No.

If, it is set to Yes, auto-suggest does not work. In our store, "Use flat product catalog" is set to Yes and it will always be to Yes.

Does this extension, related to this setting that is "Use flat product catalog" ?
Will this work, when "Use flat product catalog" is set to Yes ?

Hello!

The Search Autocomplete And Suggest extension works with the flat catalog option enabled, this Magento functions does not affect the work of the extension.
