Reviews

Works very well and also there is helpful support.

I’ve used the plugin for some time now on a few of my projects and it works very well.

Recently I had a problem with replacing the default search in the Vantage theme but the author of the plugin provided support 😉

Fantastic, works great on large installs

Absolutely no problems getting this working on a woocommerce install with a couple thousand products to search through.

Works much better than the default search.

Developer was also very helpful in supporting our existing theme.

The pro version is very powerful and I recommend it. I was able to use it’s functionality to not only replace our search bar with a better alternative, but also to create other navigation functions to help our customers find exactly what they are looking for.

Fantastic Plugin and Support

Great plugin, amazing customer service and couldn’t be more helpful!!!! Would recommend to anyone and will be using this search on every site going forward.

Beautiful but oooooooh so slow

The plugin looks great, lots of cool options and it looks really good. One of the better looking options available. But it is sooooooo slow. My customers often have to wait for 10 seconds or more to finally get to see some result.

Even e-mailed the developer about it, only got 1 reply. All other messages I sent after that where never replied.

Only worth 2 stars because it looks good, but it is so darn slow.

Good plugin

Great plugin for the front end . I would like to see that works in the admin as well. Good job otherwise
