Virtuemart Ajax Product Search

We've developed a new Joomla and Virtuemart extension which enables you to search your products the Google way. For demo please visit http://testvm.rupostel.sk/ and see RuposTel VirtueMart Ajax Search with input box "Product Search" at the left modules (this is VM1 on Joomla 1.5 site). For VM2 site, and ajax search in component mode, search for "saw" within http://vm2.rupostel.com/vm2010 Since March 2015, the search works also in no-ajax mode. 

 This extension is provided as is, with no additional support unless agreed otherwise. The extension is provided "as is" and includes a hidden back link to our site. Please don't remove the link if you like this extension and want to support us. These are the features:

VirtueMart Ajax Product Search module which does not depend on any javascript platform such as mootools written in pure javascript. - Includes own SQL search queries
- ajax results can be styled with own code
- Creates and shows own thumbs for products (GD Required)
- Caches the result of the search thus making it much faster
- Supports SEO extensions
- uses your Virtuemart's language files - no translation is necessary
- installs and uninstalls cleanly with joomla installer

Download here for Virtuemart 1.1.x and Joomla 1.5

http://www.rupostel.com/mod_vm_ajax_search.zip

Download here for Virtuemart 2.x and Joomla 2.5 (and Joomla 1.5)

Updated 27.12.2012 (fixed VM 2.0.16 compatiblity issue)

Note 2: If you updated virtuemart to above 2.0.14, you also have to update this module as well with the link below, or delete your virtuemart's /components/com_virtuemart/virtuemart_parser.php which causes issues with extensions that were built for both versions of virtuemart. 

The PRO version of this extension is available only via our official download section for OPC Subscribers. 

http://www.rupostel.com/mod_vm_ajax_search_for_vm2.zip  (free version - only ajax drop down works here, no joomla 3 support)

(demo here at left top)

 Notice

Both versions of the module include a backlink to our site. If you need 1 hour support for this extension in matters of functionality, design or customization, please purchase 50 euro of additional services and let us know. 

 [NEW] Mar 2015 - Release of Ajax Search Pro for Virtuemart 2.0.x  and Virtuemart 3.0.x

PRO Version versus FREE version

- can be fully styled including the results, it uses standard joomla overrides for it's styles

- the results are much more relevant - much higher quality of the results, especially due to searching word variations

- new non-ajax mode for sites that require the largest speed possible

- new "more" button can be added to the results set

- it can use either your VM's category theme, K2 theme, or it's own theme within joomla overrides 

- shows top 500 keywords, so you can customize your product descriptions in case the customers do not find what you sell

- added a new options: "debug - to be able to style the ajax pop-ups" and "search products only in stock"

We had released a PRO version of Ajax Search for OPC subscribers which can be downloaded from our download area. 

New in 2015

Ajax search pro now supports component ajax search mode or drop down search mode. There are lot's of minor fixes in the PRO version. It can use it's own product listing template, or Virtuemart's category template. 

How to use Ajax Search Pro

1. Install the package which will install a component and a module into your joomla 2.5.x

2. How to set up "ajax component mode": Check your theme's position where you would like to show the results of the search the same way as your virtuemart categories are shown. You may use Google Chrome console to find out an ID or a class of an element where the html will be auto inserted

ajaxpro

3. In the example above we located an id "wrapper2" which suits the results section the best

4. Proceed to the module configuration "RuposTel Ajax Search Pro" and configure the component settings here: 

ajax wrapper settings

4. Enable the module whereever needed (even outside virtuemart pages) and see the results as shown at our customer at www.municak.sk 

municak example

5. To hide the left or right columns, set proper settings per right and left column area within the module configuration

Notes

  • This module uses it's own caching per search string
  • Each search is stored in stats table 
  • It does not and will not support page listing, but rather the user should specify better search string to match less products
  • The number of results can be configured within the module
  • The checkbox shown within the search is used to ask for "search descriptions as well" which slows down the query several times. (configured via Optional search parameters)
  • Styling is done per random selected virtuemart category -> if you are using various styles per category, let us know

 Future updates

  • create pre-cached results per most searched strings via a cron job
  • add drop down search option where the results can be styled with joomla overrides

Please use our forum or send us an email in case you needed help. 

 

 

How to get Ajax Search Pro

Since June 2015 we do not provide standalone installer package and we rather bundle all of our extensions under single OPC subscription and single installer. 

1. Download OPC (one page checout) from our download section

2. Install OPC (large upload support is needed)

3. Install from OPC Extension tab (com_rupsearch and mod_virtuemart_ajax_search_pro) as shown at this image:

We fixed these bugs in the latest version
- noimage support
- duplicit images bug for images such as img_1.jpg and img_2.jpg
- SEO now works well on the latest version of Artio JommSEF, but in some other configurations we were not able to create proper SEF links yet

Hello there,
I wonder is there an option to limit the search in sertain category? For example: I make two categories in my online shop - "Clothes" and "Shoes". I want to put a copy of the module in "Clothes" and another one in "Shoes". When a search is performed on each of the copies of the module, to show results only from the particular category. Is this possible?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello Storyan,
please have a look into /modules/mod_vm _ajax_search/aj ax/index.php where you can customize your SQL queries. In the next version Ajax search will work with joomfish-virtue mart sites and will be able to search translations of the product.
Quote
 
 
-1 #6 Stoyan 2011-08-03 14:13
Hey, thanks for the fast replay! :) I looked at this file but I don't know PHP and I don't understand what should be changed in order to customize the SQL queries. Anyway, I'm not sure that's what I need. If anything is changed in this file, this will limit the search for all the copies of the module I make. I want to make one copy for category "Clothes", another copy for category "Shoes" and etc. That means for each copy of the module, different settings. The settings in the index.php file are going to reflect for all the copies of the module, aren't they? What I need is more like an option in the beckend settings.

-1 #7 Searching 2011-08-09 19:28
The default search call is going to the default root level instead of the relative path for the Joomla install. where in /modules/mod_vm _ajax_search/aj ax/index.php would I adjust the default seach call to default to the root of my joomla install instead?

Example: When submitting search string it goes to;

[censored]://www.randomurl.com/index.php?keyword=ops&Itemid=1&option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse

needs to be changed to:

[censored]://www.randomurl.com/CATALOG/index.php?keyword=ops&Itemid=1&option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse

If I can get this little bit figured out this mod will be a perfect solution for my search needs.

Thanks!

What to modify in default.php file? what line?

I have the same problem.
I have correctly configured URL and SECUREURL in VirtueMart.
I looked through all the code default.php.
Adjusting of $base_dir did nothing.
I adjusted line 43, adding 'CATALOG/' before index.php, and when I make a search on the site, each time the script duplicated the 'CATALOG'. (That is, when you try to use searching, you get '[censored]://M YSITE.com/CATAL OG/CATALOG/inde x.php?keyword=S EARCH&Itemid=10 &option=com_vir tuemart&page=sh op.browse&Searc h=blablabla')

Hey! Thank you for this great module, it works wonders on the site I'm currently working on since it is the only ajax search that I found to be properly working with VM. I do however have a problem with the images - just as mentioned before there are no images generated when I search for something, only grey boxes. I checked the cache folders and there wasn't anything generated there too. I also get an error on the bottom of the results stating "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/instock/p ublic_html/shop /plugins/system /rokcandy_syste m.php on line 125". I would be really grateful if you could help me!
Quote
 
 
-2 #37 admin 2012-05-11 15:12
Hello, pls make sure you have appropriate permissions on the cache folder and also for the VM image path. It uses GD to generate the thumbs, so please check if your hosting supports it. The ajax page is loaded in different path than joomla's index.php file which can cause problems with some of the external plugins. If i have a little bit time, i can rewrite it into module with a component helper so it loads as a normal joomla page.

Hi

What versions of Joomla and Virtuemart is Virtuemart Ajax Product Search compatible with?

Has anyone tested Virtuemart Ajax Product Search with large datasets for 10,000 products and above?
Quote
 
 
-1 #42 admin 2012-07-18 14:31
Hello, the ajax search runs on all versions of VM1.1.x and Joomla 1.5 with Joomfish or without and does support more then 10 000 products as far as your database can handle it full text search within it. The results are then cached and the database is not used. We are currently working on version for VM2.

-1 #45 admin 2012-07-18 14:48
It does not use the Joomla's caching system, therefore to delete it's cache you must delete the cache manually within Tools -> Clean cache.

Further customization (turning on or off of the cache) can be done at the top of the /modules/mod_vm _ajax_search/aj ax/index.php ($cache_off = true;)

(it requires the same fix as above).

The reason for this error is that VM2.0.16 now includes the virtuemart_pars er.php which was used to decide if VM1 or VM2 are being used.

Hello, I wonder if there's a way to search for categories instead of products. I don't want to show the products in the search result but just the categories, would that be possibile? Thank you very much! :)

Hi guys,

Thank you so much for this - it's awesome! I was wondering how to add these couple of things:

* short description
* SKU

...and also how to change the URL that it uses to display the product when you select one? I'd like it to reload the category page with just that product if possible (I've got a kind of one page Virtuemart).

If not, which page in Virtuemart would I edit to change the look of the product page, when clicked?

Cheers!

Watto :)

Hello all, I tried to look through the posts but I cant find it.

I bought a template with the Ajax Search plugin integrated. The template is Joomla 2.5.8 with VM 2.0.14. I tried to do an update to VM 2.0.18 and now Im getting the error; "Attention: You have still old vm extensions in your joomla installation active, uninstall or disable them"

Turned everything off and turned it back on one by one until I found that the Ajax Search module is the problem. Can you help me with this please???

Hello, pls delete your /components/com _virtuemart/vir tuemart_parser. php

The virtuemart file is not used by any part of Virtuemart, includes a fatal error and there is no reason to have it.

Hello, yes, the results are not handled with the module, they are handled by the default VM search page. You may disable the search button so there is no form submission possible.

This ajax search module we developed for our primary hosting customers for stock pairing system so our customers can pair two databases of products together. We also plan to add this module to our main component - one page checkout so wholesale customers can easily search, navigate, set and add to cart the products for which they already know the SKUs or names and need a fast add-to-cart option. Once we add it to OPC, it will be better supported with much more features.

You must download the file above: mod_vm_ajax_search_for_vm2.zip

I just tested the installation on Joomla 2.5 + Virtuemart 2.0.18a and it works all well.

Currently the version for Virtuemart 2 is not compatible with other joomla then 2.5.

Please download the proper version.

Same problem here ! I'm using sh404 and every component in my website behave properly except this one. I'm running VM 2.0.18a and J2.5.

I did some investigation and apparently the link generated for the product name doesn't have a category Id.
I can't figure out how to get the category Id from a product in the file ajax/index.php.

If you just tell us how to access to the related category id it will work for URL rewriting.

Thx

0 #103 admin 2013-03-24 17:59
hello, this seems more like a sef issue because products can be in more than one category and the sef url should not depend on it's category variable. your code should work, but only if you have the product in one category.

the query will select the first one (randomly) even when the category is unpublished. in our sef cusom extensions we usually chose to display top category of the category in which the product is located if not a special category such as deals or similar.

i recommend that you get a commercial sef extension which would show the product url always the same regadless of it's defined underlying category.

template 2.5.9/2.0.20b upgraded from 2.5.8/2.0.14, deleted the parser.php file, etc. Seemed to work, but now the Ajax Search no longer drops down when typed in it. Worked with old VM sample data. With new VM items, nothing. Can add a term and click submit and get results, but no drop down ajax effect.

Any ideas where to look to figure out what is wrong or conflicting? We uninstalled and reinstalled your latest version, but still no good. If I turn on a different ajax search (RokAjax), that has the drop-down effect that works, but we do not like that module as well as yours.

Is there some other thing we need to do to create the search cache or pictures for your module? Like I said, it worked with the sample data loaded, but once we deleted those items and cleared the Joomla cache, now your search module does not do the drop down effect.

Any way we can figure out how to get yours working again? Thanks.

Due to the fact that you did not specify that it is not multi-lingual, and are willing to be responsible only for 50 euros, I lost a lot of time to solve the problem from the wrong reference. And as soon as I solved the problem, a new I switched languages ​​and there is an error in the Ajax response. Asli no Saporta, indicates that your unit does not support multilingual. A module is nice, but now will have to be abandoned.

Hello, i checked the files now and the module creates it's own thumbs in /images/thumb_30x30/

One of the reasons why it may not work for you is the Joomla's FTP layer which is not implemented by the module. It uses php's functions to save the thumbs.

Let us know if the thumbs are indeed generated in the directory or not.

Stan

Hello, i must say that this module does no statistics of the search as we rather run the queries without php once they are fully cached. This enables you to run the module with 100 000 products on a normal server. If you used statistics for the keywords, you'd need whole rack of servers with database replication to do the same job.
