You can add features such as autocomplete, spell correct, image search, filtered search in a matter of few minutes.

How to do this?

  1. Go to https://cse.expertrec.com?platform=true
  2. Enter your website URL.
  3. Wait for crawl to complete.
  4. Copy the code.
  5. Replace your magento search box with expertrec’ search box– The template for Magento search box can be found at app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalogsearch/form.mini.phtml. We will customize this so it will call expertrec search results when a search query is entered. Replace the following code with the code you copied from expertrec’s control panel.  Replace
    <form id="search_mini_form" action="<?php echo $this->helper('catalogsearch')->getResultUrl() ?>" method="get">
    <div class="form-search">
            <label for="search"><!--?php echo $this--->__('Search:') ?></label>
    <input id="search" class="input-text" name="<?php echo $this->helper('catalogsearch')->getQueryParamName() ?>" type="text" value="<?php echo $this->helper('catalogsearch')->getEscapedQueryText() ?>">
            <button class="button" title="<?php echo $this->__('Search') ?>"><span><span><!--?php echo $this--->__('Search') ?></span></span></button>
            <script type="text/javascript"></script></div>

    with the code you copied from your expertrec control panel.
