Improve the accuracy of the search on your OpenCart site! Smart Search will return the most relevant results by performing a search of the selected product fields in four phases: (1) products with the exact phrase, (2) products with ALL keywords, correctly spelled, (3) products with ALL keywords, possibly misspelled, (4) products with ANY keywords, possibly misspelled. It includes advanced search configuration options, an automatic live search dropdown, recording of search history, and more.

  • Includes all the features of the standard Smart Search extension.
  • Smart Search your products in the admin panel as well as the front-end.
  • For large databases, choose to enable Fulltext search, which is faster but less accurate than the normal Smart Search algorithm
  • Choose to display matching categories, information pages, and/or manufacturers along with your product results.
  • Display relevant category/information/manufacturer pages in both the regular search and live search.

Updated to v300.1

Due to limitations in the license system, a new extension was released on for OpenCart 3.0 compatibility. However, free updates are still available for anyone that has purchased the extension in July 2016 or after --- just contact Clear Thinking here:

Release Notes:
- NOTE: The extension now uses ocMod instead of vQmod, as required by the OpenCart cloud. If upgrading from a previous version, make sure to delete the old vQmod file, and then click "Refresh" in Extensions > Modifications.

- Added: compatibility with OpenCart 3.0.0.x
- Added: native compatibility with OpenCart 2.3.0.x (You can remove the compatibility fix, or keep using it if you want to)
- Fixed: Phase 2 could get skipped with a single search word if Phase 1 was turned off
- Removed: compatibility with OpenCart 1.5.x and for new versions
- Updated: installation no longer requires the base version be installed first

Updated to v302.1

Release Notes:

- NOTE: Starting with this version, all template files will use the .twig extension. These will still work completely fine on OpenCart 2.x versions, and still use the .tpl-type syntax. However, if you've made edits to the .tpl file, you'll need to port those edits over to the new file.

- Confirmed: compatibility with OpenCart 3.0.2.x
- Updated: instructions.txt file to include directions on how to make the Journal filter module compatible (note: compatibility is never guaranteed)
- Updated: the live search URL is no longer accessible if the live search is turned off

Updated to v303.1

- Fixed: category, information, and manufacturer results were not being restricted by store_id correctly

- Updated: Testing Mode log is now cleared automatically when over 50 MB
