Rumours are justified – aheadWorks releases new search module

We have been talking about it in Facebook and Twitter for several weeks. And finally today we are ready to release it – the Advanced Search Magento extension which replaces native search with Sphinx, an external search engine.

100 000 inventory items and 10 000 blog posts search is not a problem now
If you run a really large Magento store, you definitely know how difficult it is for your customers to find something they require very fast. Advanced Search is a perfect solution for search through Magento-based stores.

If you have 10000 products in your store, our brand new extension will help your customers to find those which are required.

If you have 1000 posts in your blog from aheadWorks, it’s not a problem for Advanced Search as well.

How it works
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,,,, etc.



Easy setup
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.

Easy search settings
The Advanced Search Magento 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.


Configure search and index in the most appropriate way for your store
Different products are sold in different stores and they all need different search. If search by manufacturer is primary in your store, just define the higher weight for corresponding attribute.
