Magento Advanced Search uses Sphinx. Sphinx is an open source full text search server. This powerful search engine is used by different popular websites, such as Craigslist.org, mysql.com, joomla.org, tumblr.com, Dailymotion.com. etc.
Just install Sphinx on your server, configure Advanced Search and enjoy. You won’t have to deal with complicated Sphinx configuration - Advanced Search will do everything for you.
Please note that installation service does not cover cronjob setup and/or Sphinx installation. You may need to contact your system administrator or hosting provider regarding the matter.
Magento Advanced Search extension configures Sphinx for you in accordance with your settings.
Sphinx supports many different API's, PHP, Python, Java, etc. So you can easily integrate an external application to perform search over Sphinx indexes.
With Sphinx installed on dedicated server, your search becomes even faster.
Sphinx has several different ways of matching the given search keywords, which can be set in the Match Mode field. It is possible to define whether the search results will match all query words, any of the query words, a phrase with perfect match, etc.
With the help of the module, you can enhance your store search functionality with one of the following options:
Different products are sold in different stores and they all need different attribute priority for search.
If search by manufacturer is primary in your store, just define the higher weight for corresponding attribute.
Search Autocomplete & Suggest provides customers with a dropdown of destination suggestions once they are past typing the third symbol in the search field, allowing to jump to the relevant product without going through the search results page.
Advanced Search replaces standard Magento search and brings a power of external search engine to your store.
Both these extensions can easily work together - when installed on the same website, Search Autocomplete & Suggest can use Magento Advanced Search as its search engine.
