ExtendedSearch - Extended Opencart Search Engine
It is no secret that the standard Opencart search is far from ideal:
- search in fields Model, SKU, EAN, JAN, ISBN and MPN is possible only with strict conformity;
- on the part of the word search is possible only by product name and tags;
- search at attributes is not available;
ExtendedSearch module extends the standard search functionality in the store, allowing you to customize the search engine in the admin panel (in the settings of the module).
When module activated, on the search page will display products with a partial match query in fields Model, SKU, EAN, JAN, ISBN, MPN, Location and attributes.

If module not works:
The most common reason - forgot to update the cache modifications after uploading in Extension Installer.
Enable module and sku search, fill field sku in some product, input this sku in store search field and press Enter.
If nothing found - see modification log (the most recent entries, where ExtendedSearch) and fix xml for your site.
PS: and do not confuse AutoSearch (preview instant search) and ExtendedSearch (extended search mechanism)
