  • Fulltext Search uses MYSQL algorithms; corrects typos automatically;
  • MySQL LIKE Search is the fastest type of search that works with the exact matches. If visitors are mostly searching your store for particular models, this type of search would be the most suitable.

Excellent Extension
This extension just excellent! I suggest to every one. It's easy to use, has a very nice fronted design and includes the all meta options you need for your page. The Amasty team also helped me to install this extension. Could not say nothing wrong about the product 100/100!

Good and easy
Ok, I'll be the first to write a review.
First of all, this is my first Amasty extension so my experience with this company is based entirely on it.
I had a blog on my site previously but used CMS pages for that which is not a way out at all. This extension makes it really easy to manage posts and in general makes a blog similar to a blog but not to just some random pages on an eCommerce site.
Configuration is easy, it took time to set up the options. I had a problem on installation and even send a note to Amasty support, but then managed to solve it myself by clearing cache.
