Current Version: v303.2 (release notes)

OpenCart Versions: 1.5.0.x - 3.0.3.x

To Purchase: Visit OpenCartX or opencart.com

For Additional Features: Take a look at Smart Search Pro

Image Image Image

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.

  • Upload and go — utilizes ocMod so no core file modifications are necessary.
  • 100% compatible with any custom theme.
  • Choose which product fields to search within: name, description, meta tag description, meta tag keywords, tags, model, SKU, UPC, EAN, JAN, ISBN, MPN, location, category name, manufacturer name, attribute group, attribute name, attribute value, option name, and/or option value.
  • Automatically display search results right from the search bar with the included Live Search functionality.
  • Choose the default sorting for products: date added, date available, date modified, model, name, price, quantity in stock, rating, sort order, times purchased, or times viewed.
  • Set a minimum number of results to display, so customers always have more than a few results to choose from.
  • Optionally account for plurals, for misspelled words in searches (including setting the misspelling tolerance), and for searching within a category's sub-categories.
  • Select how often to refresh the keyword cache and the misspelling cache: hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.
  • Make pre-search replacements on the search terms, such as replacing hyphens with spaces or commonly misspelled product names with correct ones.
  • Enable a testing mode to view how long queries are taking on your site.

This is very cool. Almost like most search engines have "Did you mean "xxxx"..."
Great job

Updated to v153.4

Release Notes:

- Added "Reset" button to the Smart Search History report
- Added CDATA tags to the ajax script so it doesn't mess up W3C validation
- Added !important to ajax CSS declarations to prevent them being overridden
- Changed "Prioritization" setting to "Use Cache". if set to "No", then a misspelling search is performed without needing a cache file. This may be faster for stores with large product databases.

- Fixed bug with ajax search not responding to number keypad keys
- Improved caching so it does not fail on servers with low memory limits
- Optimized database queries, which should improve speed for some stores
- Removed option to refresh cache from admin-side -- to do a manual refresh, just save your settings and do a search on your site
