The Issues Search Suite Extension Solves


Powerful Internal Search


Are you aware that 43% of site visitors will go directly to a search box and the searchers are 2-3 times more likely to convert (according to the Forrester Research)? Intuitive & intelligent on-site search has been proved to be critical for an optimized sales channel.


The extension allows to power up your Magento 2 store with one of the most popular and advanced search engines ― Sphinx.

With its functionality, you’ll be able to quickly accumulate and index all store database information. Thus, your customers will get instant search results even if you have a wide range of products to offer.

Feature Highlights:

  • Improved onsite search
  • Fast & relevant query results
  • As-you-type suggestions
  • Selling right from the search box

Sphinx Connection Customization


Sometimes, for workflow optimization, there is a need to have Sphinx running on a separate server. In such cases, the possibility to adjust the default Sphinx connection settings (and the other server that runs SQL to accept external connections) would be vital.


The Search Suite allows you to either use the default Sphinx settings or adjust them in full compliance with your business objectives.

Feature Highlights:

  • Ability to change host, port, index path & connection timeouts
  • Setting the Search Results Ranker
  • Setup validation
  • Sphinx configuration file application right in the backend

Search Autocomplete Functionality


Fast, easy and positive customer shopping experience is closely related to high conversion rates. That’s where the ability to eliminate a search step and help the customers find the right offering from the first letters can come in handy.

Additionally, spelling errors & typos can often hinder the customers from finding the products they are searching for.


The search autocomplete functionality helps the customers find what they need in a mouse click. While helping the shoppers avoid any kind of typos, you as a merchant get a possibility to push specific products to the top of autocomplete suggestions. Thus, high-margin products or items with excess stock get easily promoted and accessed.

Additionally, the shoppers will get a possibility to add products to cart right from the search results. Thus, the number of clicks between seeing and buying will be eliminated.

Feature Highlights:

  • Advanced configuration of the search pop-up (displaying/hiding product price, name, image, and more)
  • Customization of autocomplete rankings
  • Autocomplete delay for server loads optimization
  • Ability to add products to cart right from the search results

Mobile-Friendly Search

The extension offers a search pop-up that supports mobile responsive design thus ensuring enhanced shopping experience for the shoppers that use hand-held devices. The search block will be displayed on the most popular mobile-friendly Magento themes without any additional customization required.

  • Mageworx-Team has been very slow to provide support - still no reply 48 hrs later.
    Have issues with install and our dev team reached out to MageWorx, they initially replied but then went cold - now we have a $99 none working plug in. Expected better support. 48 hrs and no reply from support Will update this review once we receive some support.
