How Searchanise works Print

Modified on: Wed, Aug 11, 2021 at 5:43 PM

Smart WooCommerce Search plugin by Searchanise introduces the instant search widget and improved search results page for Woocommerce stores.

Once the app is installed in a store, it automatically registers a Searchanise account.

Searchanise starts to work by itself right after the first indexation is complete. No additional configuration is necessary.

Further indexation of changes in products, categories, and pages occurs automatically in real time. To re-index them manually, click the Force re-indexation button in the Dashboard section of the Searhcanise control panel.

The app searches through products, categories, and pages. This is the list of product fields used for search:

  • Name;
  • Description;
  • SKU;
  • Price;
  • Categories;
  • Product type;
  • Tags;
  • Attributes;

     Note: Searchanise indexes products only with the Published status and categories with any status except Hidden.

The look and feel of the widgets can be customized not only via regular settings and convenient color pickers but also by applying Custom CSS. You can message us anytime via our feedback form in the Help tab, we will be glad to help you customize the app.

Instant search widget

As soon as you start typing in the search bar in the store, Searchanise instantly shows search results and suggestions.

If the theme you are using doesn't have a search bar, the Instant search sticky widget with similar functionality will appear. 

Note: The app doesn't add or move the search bar, it builds itself into the existing one.

You can learn more about the configuration of the Instant search widget here.

Search results widget

After the first indexation is fully complete, the plugin creates an additional search results page, the Search results widget uses it to display results. The page can't be deleted before the plugin is deactivated. Every time Searchanise finishes indexation it refreshes the content of the page. 

You can learn more about the configuration of the Search results widget here.

Trial period

Once you install the app, a 14-day trial period will start automatically, giving you access to all the Pro features.

Searchanise subscription

A free plan is available, but only the Pro and Advanced subscription plans unlock all of the features. It’s very easy to subscribe in the Searchanise admin panel by clicking the Upgrade: ... trial days left or Unlock PRO features button.
