Upgrades are free for the within the same X-Cart branch. As long as you are using 4.0 or 4.1 you will be good (so you will be good for a while).

Hi guys,

Following is my review for smart search:


I purchased the smart search script 2 days go.

Intallation went very smoothly. I got around 6500 products & it just took 45 mintute time by Smart Search to index the entire database.

There was small issue but it was promptly resolved by developer Bill Brewer.

I was facing lot's of complaint from my customers that even though I got so many products the default search was not helping them out to find exact product quickly but now due to Smart Search's features like "Did you Mean ? " & "Similar Search Phrases" I am sure that will able to find products quickly.

I highly recommend this product if some one has more than 100 products.

The productcode (SKU) and productid's are now included in the search. You will not need to update to get these functions.

OK, script appears to hang at:

Code:
DO NOT PRESS THE REFRESH BUTTON Please wait while the Smart Search Words Database is being rebuilt. 0% Complete. There is about and 0 seconds remaining. Updating Records 0 to 50 of 7278 words. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . If the page is not updated in a 5 seconds, please follow this link

After I get this figured out, what cron task should I use?


All we need now is a good spell checker mod. The 'Similar Search Phrases' sure points out the misspellings.....
Thanks!

The rebuild can take a couple of minutes (it can seem like it stopped). If the spell checking and similar search phrases are working than the database was built correctly. If you are having trouble please send an email to support@alteredcart.com and I will take a look for you.

thanks, i got it to work on a different PC. Seems like on my Vista box IE would timeout but with a different XP pc, it didn't timeout. the process took about 30 minutes to complete.

I'd like to set this up as a cron. Do you know how i can pass in 'mode=rebuild&lang=US' to command line php?

We bought Smart Search from AlteredCArt three days ago but only today we have time to install it.
And works perfect. In Romanian language too (one of my biggest concerns was that will not work properly in other languages than English).


We have about 200 products and indexing took almost 5 minutes with 2000 words.

You can see it working on www.FunGift.ro - the biggest Romanian gift shop (and that is not shameless self prmotion ).

Tahnk you AlteredCart fot that mod.. we will buy it for another store of us for sure.
