Introducing Magento 2 Advanced Search

Advanced Search is the solution making your search box the shortest way to target products and pages relevant to any customer and his demand.

For customers
Ajax Search Magento 2 Extension Aheadworks
Gain 1:
Provide search autosuggestions
The success of on-site search is evaluated by the relevance of provided results. There is much at stake in this case - new conversions or mass visitor exits. Make sure that the outcome is always positive using:
  • Provided search autosuggestions;
  • History of recent searches provided in popups;
  • Improved results based on advanced synonym variations;
  • Spelling corrections provided by the ‘Did you mean’ search functionality.
Magento 2 Custom Search Module
Gain 2:
Allow customers to search throughout the whole store
Most likely customers use on-site search to find the products they need, but that is not always the case. Sometimes, they want to find more about your warranty, delivery, returns, and refund terms and conditions, or they want to get some product tips from your official blog. You can definitely make this information available to them providing on-site search for:
  • Products;
  • Static pages;
  • Blog posts (integration required);
  • FAQs (integration required).

Gain 3:
Improve the performance of your store
On average, the share of people using on-site search is 30%. But, you can easily increase that number with the extension if you:
  • Exploit the mobile-friendly interface that makes the search option great on any device;
  • Have the catalog and layered navigation powered and accelerated by Elasticsearch;
  • Benefit from the provided advanced index management.
For admins
Top Magento 2 Autosearch Extension
Gain 1:
Manage searchable attributes and their weights
Magento merchants are able to tailor search results strictly according to their long-term business needs or current promotional purposes:
  • The module works with existing search term attributes and their weights making the initial configuration quick and easy;
  • Searchable attributes are arranged by weights.
Magento 2 Advanced Search Module
Gain 2:
Utilize improved synonyms
Customers do not necessarily know the exact name of the product they want and often look for a solution to their problem or task. For example, they can type “sports footwear” instead of “running shoes” and so on. With the Advanced Search extension, you will be able to ‘read’ their minds immediately. For this purpose:
  • The extension works with native Magento synonyms from the very moment of the installation;
  • Search terms can be added to existing synonym groups in bulk;
  • New synonym groups can be easily created from the search terms results page.

Gain 3:
Prevent system failures
One in a million cases, even if you lose the connection with Elasticsearch or it suffers from some server malfunctions, we ensured that this issue is not going to be a problem for your store:
  • As soon as Elasticsearch becomes unavailable, the store will switch to native MySQL and continue its work.

Not a Bad Product!

Great product if you are looking for something to replace native Magento search module. Easy to setup and works just fine with other extensions.
Does it work with Elasticsearch 6.2?
Sure, Advanced Search was designed to work with Elasticsearch 6.x and is compatible with it.
Does it support multi-store?
Yes, it does. It is possible to configure the extension separately for different websites.
During the purchase I have to enter our url. Does this extension only work on 1 installation? Because we have a development environment and a production environment.
Our EULA allows using the extensions on a single production and as many dev or staging sites as you need without a need of purchasing an extra license.
What is aheadworks policy on supporting its modules? Specifically if a security vulnerability is found will aheadworks create a patch?
Our extensions come with included support period and we are able to provide technical assistance when the support is active.
As for security vulnerabilities and bugs, we are trying our best to fix them free of charge regardless of the support period status.
This extension for Magento 2 supports Saudi riyal currency and Arabic Language?
If your currency and language is natively supported by Magento 2, the extension will also support it.
However, to work with RTL most likely some style adjustments will be required and you will need to translate some options the same way as you did with your Magento.
Does the extension support full page caching?
Since full page cache is a native Magento 2 feature, all our extensions for this platform support it.
I run Magento 1.X. Will my currently installed extensions from aheadWorks work in Magento 2?
Due to a significant difference between Magento 1 and Magento 2 branches, the extensions for M1 will not work in M2.
However, the owners of the extensions by Aheadworks for Magento 1 can get 25% discount on purchase the same extensions by AW for M2
Which URL do I specify on checkout if I've got only a development store at the moment?
You need to enter a final address of the site when it will go live.

If the domain name is still under consideration at the moment of purchase, you can enter an address of your dev environment. In this case, don't forget to contact us when the final domain name has been registered: our support team will change it by your request.
I run Magento 2 on AWS with ELB (Elastic Load Balancers) do I need a license per EC2 instance? They are all behind the same domain.
Such setup is considered to be a single Magento environment, so you need only one license.
