Magento Extensions by ITORIS

The Search by Category extension expands standard Magento search and simplifies the task of finding products for your customers. Search can be added as a slider under standard Magento search field. It will slide down when selected.

There are two variants of search - you can set it to work as a filter (‘search by’ functionality). Your customers will narrow parameters going deep inside categories and sub-categories. At any step they can select to display the results or continue narrowing the parameters. The functionality is close to layered navigation.

Or you can set it to be an advanced search where your customers select a category (or it is pre-selected already if they are inside the category on the website) and search area is changed immediately to show only the category’s attributes. Then they enter a word or phrase – and voila! – they get the exact list of items they have been looking for.

In addition to the slider search can be inserted as a widget anywhere to your website.


»  Your select parameters to search by
»  Different parameters displayed depending on category
»  Two modes – search and ‘search-by’ filter
»  Two ways to add – as a slider pane or as a widget
»  Happy customers get what they look for!

Will I be able to insert or place a search box in different locations , say for example put a search bar on a category landing page, or a cms page, or even in a navigational drop down. Can I default it to a specific category if that is the case.
Asked by: bkinnas
Not sure what you mean. The search box is attached to the search field you already have on your site, and is displayed on all pages. If you want to hide/show it on specific pages that can be done in JavaScript. A few JS lines needed. Please contact support at for assistance.
