A search engine that almost understands the natural language
When you search with the Virtuemart search, it tries to find the whole phrase, in the fields of the database.
This very often results in "No Products Found" pages and loss of the potential customer.
Our search returns results even with complex queries, that could contain Category and Manufactuer names, Custom Fields and every other possible field, in the same phrase.
- Searches for variations of a phrase. E.g. Red T-shirt and T-shirt Red will return the same results
- Searches into the custom fields
- It is combined with the filtering module, for further refinement of the results
- Uses Cache to work faster
- Generation of filters from the Virtuemart's native custom field types (Not native plugins)
- Generation of filters also from our Custom Fields For All plugin.
Provides faster filtering and additional filter types such as colors.
- Auto detection and display of the filters relevant to the displayed products.
- No special structure required for the custom fields, like the use of parent custom fields. It works in any case.
- Total control over each filter individually. Set it's display type, ordering and more.
- Display as expandable tree or as flat list
- Configurable Category tree
(open/close icon, parent categories as links and more)
- Include/Exclude Categories

It can be done using text inputs (From - To) , a Slider or both.It takes into account:
- Calculation rules
- Price overrides
- Prices in multiple currencies
- Prices per shopper groups

Manufacturers can be displayed always or under conditions. For example can be displayed after selecting a category, getting the relevant to that category manufacturers
Auto-detects the filters
The filtering module detects and displays the filters and their options which are relative to displayed products. This is really important for shops with a variety of products.
Ajax can be used for loading both the modules and the results.
Optimizer is checking the database tables and optimzes them. This tool will improve the performance of the Search and the Filtering process, as well as of the whole shop.
Each filter can be set to be collapsed or expanded. This way the filtering module can be kept simple and the users can go as deep as they like
In case of filters with a lot of options, the smart search can help the users find the desired options, immediately
