Quick Start on CS-Cart

1. Installation

See the instructions on how to install the add-on here.

After the add-on is installed, the indexation starts to import search data into it. It takes some time. You can see the progress of the indexation in the Dashboard section of the Searchanise control panel. The Searchanise control panel is located in the CS-Cart admin panel > Add-ons > Manage Add-ons > Searchanise > Settings

2. Checking if the add-on is working

Once the indexation is complete, you can check how the add-on works in your store. See the instructions on how to do so here.

3. Adjusting the Instant Search Widget

3.1. Adjusting the content

You can think up what data to display or hide in the widget and change its default content. It is possible to hide the sections in the widget: pages, categories, products, or suggestions. It is also possible to hide product prices or SKUs and show an additional field like a brand or one of the product attributes in the product cards. See the instructions on how to change the content here.

3.2. Adjusting the look and feel

You can choose either a single-column or multi-column widget’s template in the Searchanise control panel > Instant search widget section > Colors tab.

You can also change colors for the widget’s template to suit your store look and feel more. See the instructions on how to do so here.

4. Adjusting the search relevance

You are able to adjust your search results and make them more relevant.

It is possible to adjust showing out-of-stock products at the end of the search results or enable SKU substring search. The SKU substring search allows you to get products in the search results, SKU of which are partially matching the search term entered into the search bar. You can do so in the Preferences section of the Searchanise control panel.

What is more, you can hide some product details from the search or change their search weight. See the instructions on how to do so here.

5. Going further

You can also try to set up merchandising rules to promote products in search results in the Instant Search Widget.
