Instant Search Results

Search results pop-up window in Search Autocomplete Magento

Magento Search AutoComplete instantly delivers the search results, thus helping customers quickly find products they need.

As soon as a customer begins typing a search term, the extension shows a pop-up with searched products, categories and CMS pages that are relevant to the search query. Each block can be turned on or off. The whole process is lightning fast and works great even if you have a huge number of pages to search through.

Customizable Appearance of the Autocompleate Pop-Up

The appearance of the pop-up is fully customizable. A store admin can change its every element: starting with the color, keywords highlighting and finishing up with the layout of a pop-up window.

  • Customize the appearance of the Autocomplete pop-up window
  • Configure product details (product name, SKU, short description, description, price, rating, thumbnail and "Add to Cart" button)
  • Show a separator between content blocks in the pop-up (Suggested Searches, Products, Categories and CMS pages)
  • Limit the number of suggested searches results
  • Highlight the searched keywords in the results
  • Configure the number of products in the pop-up
  • Specify different order for products in the pop-up (sorted by Price, Name, Relevance)
Customized view of the search pop-up window

Search results grouped by Categories

Magento search by categories option

With Magento Search Autocomplete plugin you can instantly suggest results found on your store category pages. Also, you will be able to group the found results by categories.

  • Automatically search store categories
  • Configure the number of categories in the pop-up
  • Group products by categories in the pop-up

Instant results from CMS / Static pages

Sometimes customers may want to search for a user manual, TOS, refund policies and other things that are usually placed on static CMS pages.

Magento Autocomplete Search extension lets your customers instantly find what they need:

  • Include results from CMS / Static pages into the pop-up
  • Full support of Magento widgets added to CMS pages
  • Highlight search keywords on CMS pages when you browse them from the pop-up

Great service

On March 28, 2017
Plugin was not 100% compatible with our theme out of the box. One mail and one day later and they fixed it for us. Great service!

Works as described!

The extension works as described, with a good chunk of customization in the backend. Also the support was quite fast and resolved any issues.

Works great and support is excellent

On May 31, 2016
I bought Search AutoComplete well over 6 months ago, had a small issue when installing (because of my theme) which MageWorx helped me with.
When it mysteriously stopped displaying thumbnails the guys at MageWorx were more than happy to take a look and fix the issue months after the install.
Their communication and approach was great.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this extension and MageWorx in general based on my experience with them so far.

Search AutoComplete -- Amazing

On February 18, 2016
I installed Search AutoComplete and it was not functioning properly due to a conflict with another extension.
I contacted MageWorx and Eugene fixed the problem very quickly.
Search AutoComplete works like a charm and is SO much better than the basic Magento search. I have several MageWorx extensions and they ALL work great.
The support is terrific and the lifetime updates make these extensions worth every penny!!!
Eugene is the best! He was extremely helpful and fixed my problems quickly. Unlike other companies, he knew exactly what to do and didn't have to ask a million questions to get the job done!!! THANK YOU!

Excellent autocomplete extension

On February 2, 2016
I have used a competitor extension for similar functionality on another store. I found this one and liked the additional features it brought to the table.
The suggested searches based on user input is excellent.
I also love the searching for CMS page results as well as product results.
The default layout of the results is great, although not responsive at this time, a little CSS tweaking can help to resolve this somewhat.
Config options are plentiful, but not overwhelming, and they all do something useful!
The support is excellent, although in my case was a little slow to get my issue resolved, but there were some extenuating circumstances making things a little harder than they should be in my setup, so some forgiveness there.
When they got time to get on the job and fix my issue, they did it extremely fast, and were always careful to explain what the issue was, how they fixed it, and which files were modified, etc.
All great detail to have in development, and it is thoroughly appreciated!
Great extension from a great company - highly recommended!
My actual version is Magento (upgraded to via patches). The option to choose magento community version on this review panel only goes up to 1.8.1 for some reason!

Great support

On October 11, 2015
Works as intended; We had some Problems with product images not displaying in the search popup; We opened a support ticket and after some exchange of information with MageWorx Support we've got it working just a few hours later.

Support is great; You get response within minutes and Problems are solved within a short amount of time

Efficent support and great extension

On May 6, 2015
The installation process is well discribed and the functionality is great.
A lot of extra functions combinate with great support.
Even as a newbie in search engine adjustment I could realise my expectations.
My recommendation!

The mageworx team is helpful and listining. Extensions I tried from this delevoper are well coded and easy to handle.

Great Extension / Great Support

On December 16, 2014
I purchased this extension a couple of years ago. Mageworx is the bomb! Not only do they provide great features, but they continually upgrade their software and if you have a problem they fix it. I recently upgraded my version of Magento and had a problem with SearchAutoComplete. I contacted Mageworx and within a couple of days they fixed everything and had me up and running again... at no charge. GREAT SUPPORT.

Support on Autocomplete

On November 15, 2014
I just love this extension in combination with extended search. The basic magento search engine basicly sucks bigtime and on a webshop with over twenty two thousand products, these extentions are no luxury. Had a small problem with the autocomplete popup but after contacting support they had it up and running in no-time!

Super module!

On September 17, 2014
Very very good solution. It made my search very beautiful. I cannot say anything about post-sale support because I had no issues with their extension but pre-sale support was good.

Thank you.

Best Support Ever Experienced And Extensions that just work

On August 1, 2014
Hi Guys,

Just wanted to stop by and say a Big Thankyou for your support. I had purchased 2 extensions from you guys over 12 months ago. Instant Cart and Search AutoComplete PRO.

We recently upgraded our website to a new customized theme and were having some issues getting the full functionality of the Extensions to "play nice" with our new design.

I reached out to the support here at Mageworx and the response and service was Outstanding and far beyond my expectations.

The guys promptly corrected both extensions and have them working perfectly in harmony with our newly designed/upgraded site. Even performed some custom adjustments to get them to work with a new feature we had on the site.

Service like this is few and far between. All I can say is you have a customer for life. Anyone interested in purchasing extensions or having custom work done need look no further. You are in the right place here.

A must-have tool in your arsenal!

On July 26, 2014
Had been hesitating before placing an order. Mainly because of the negative feedback I read about the company's support on the web...

But when I purchased the software, I was amazed at the functionality the it offers. Now my store customers can get product suggestions on the fly as they type. The module also shows product pictures, which make finding what they are looking for a necessary item even easier.

Perfect! That is what I needed!

Surprisingly, the support turned out to be not so bad. Yes, that's not a lightning-fast service, but they do their job in a really professional way. Needed to customize the module a bit - and the whole job was done within 2 day.

Best search autosuggest solution

It's the best autocomplete extension I ever used. Its support helped me with my design issues very quickly.
- Oleg Verified User

Faster than expected!

On December 15, 2013
Yes, I know. This title has already been used by another reviewer, but I can find no better way to express my surprise. I also purchased the Extended Search extension and now search in my website is a completely new experience. Fast and accurate.

What is also important, is that when I had a question about the way the products where presented in the search results, I received immediate answers and a quick fix when requested.

Five stars for product quality, unbelievable price and adequate support.

A suburb extention well worth the money

On January 19, 2013
The key thing with extensions are , they should work and the company behind it should be able to support it.

We purchased this extension and am really happy with its preformance. Had a couple of cross extension issues and Mageworx answered and resolved the issue, quickly and professionally.

I highly recommend both the company behind the product along with the support they provide.

Nice add on to your customers .... and yourself

On December 31, 2012
Was easy to install. CSS customization helps you to align with your theme if the default look is not something you're after.

Customers love it. And sometimes helpful to store owners too to quickly find the right products. We're displaying Product thumb, Name, Price and SKU. Very nice add on.

Now after you pimped the search result look its highly recommended to improove the search function too. Luckily there's a perfect add on for that. So do not miss Extended Search. Combining these 2 will give a sales boost for sure to anyone.

Excellent Product, GREAT customer service!

On June 12, 2012
I had some issues installing this extension on Magento Community, and the support team helped me through the entire process. I've been really impressed with quality of this extension, and how well it works on my site.

I also bought the SEO Suite Ultimate and it's a very powerful extension.

I'm very impressed with Mageworx, and recommend this product to everyone on Magento!
- Darren Verified User

Products are FAB! Support is exceptional!!

On May 2, 2012
After promising to leave a review, I have finally got round to it and I must say that in my dealings with Mageworx I could not fault their product or service. Over the last year I have purchased two extensions (SEO suite and Search AutoComplete) from them and I have been extremely happy with both. Both of the extensions have really benefitted our online store in terms of SEO and helping customers find the products they were looking for.

We had a little trouble at first getting the search extension working, but their support was fantastic! I had been dealing with Andrew and he managed to help get the extension working correctly, tweak an issue that had arisen in the other AND helped me fix the errors I was having when trying to enable the Magento Compiler!

How is that for service!? The compiler had absolutely nothing to do with their extensions, but I asked anyway (shot in the dark) and Andrew Kindly found the issue for me.

Over the last two years since working with the Magento platform and all the extensions I have purchased to date, Mageworx team have been invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

This extension has been amazing on our website. With approximately 2500 skus, it is hard to find products on our site. With this extension, it sped up the process and customers find our products fast and easily. Mageworx is amazing, and is the very reason why we purchase from them all the time, Not to forget the Support and Quality of Extensions they are quick at getting back to you, and fixing any problems or compatibility issues. Mageworx is definitely our Top Magento Extension Company, and will always be with their continued support. Thanks Guys!
