Great product: intuitive, does what it is supposed to do, and is super customisable.

Best of all, though, is the service. Unlike some other developers who can be quite short with you when you request support (not mentioning any names, but am thinking of a certain Dutch developer who has loads of extensions listed on the JED), these guys are always really friendly and take time to provide clear and comprehensive replies.

I purchased this product because I thought it offered something that other search programs didn't. I did have some issues regarding the operation of this product, but they turned out to be a result of my Joomla configuration, not this product. I also had some styling issues, but the support I received was timely, responsive, extremely helpful, and very friendly. I now have a search component that is very attractive and very efficient - and one that is way above the run-of-the-mill search components currently on the market. Nice Job, and thanks.

I love the way it shows results. works fine with Easyblog, and shows images & results properly. I also like the fact i can force the module to search only on Easyblog, and not on joomla's content.

However ! If you need the plugin to make it works on Easyblog, you must download it from stackideas website (People who made Easyblog). You'll not find it on offlajn's website, and it can be confusing.

As the title and a couple of users stated here, this extension is not general (universal) as it works just with a couple/few of Joomla components.

The support is also lacking, it takes a couple of days to get a reply.

Dear Whanford,
We also try to answer to our customers in the shortest time on the business days. As you know, the Live Search use the search plugins to show the result list. We have many improved search plugins what can show the images next to the result list for several components. If an improved search plugin is not available the customers can ask via our support system to develop it.

Best Regards,

After watching a quite impressive demo of the live search module I asked the developer if there was a Cobalt 8 plugin available that also supported images. They responded that there wasn't, but they would optimize the current Cobalt/Joomla search plugin on my development site after I purchased their live search module. So I did and they kept their word. Not only did they optimize the Cobalt plugin within a week but they also sorted out some minor bugs soon after. Needless to say that I am very happy with this fantastic module and the great support Jenő has offered!

I have installed the universal ajax live search in one of my portals 100% based in k2. After installing the search box did not work well, then I went to support and they solved inmediately my problem. Now, my site looks more professional and conveys this feeling to the visitor.
If your site is important to you, you have to give him the best, and certainly, a good search box can make the difference between your website and the competence.
I am very satisfied with this extension and would highly recommend them.

Awesome extension, well done; my clients are very happy and surprised how nice it looks and how useful it is. Thats the reason for my rating. On the other hand its important to know, that this extension runs on Dojo, so it ads a (mostly) third js-Libary to your website. It also loads Google Fonts (in my case an outdated font) and its a little hidden, where to switch that (5-6 times :) ) off. And it seems to have an extensive caching, that you cannot control via interface; it adds an changing digit when you install it to its main css-classes - useful to know that before you customize it. I tested it successful on Joomla-Content, Virtuemart 2 and K2. Works perfect with all (goes with the Core-Search, so all the Plugins - also for the extensions - have to be enabled.)

This extention is not useful for k2 joomla3. Can not limit search in a specific category or group of category. K2 items created for menu are also displayed under search results.
I have created support ticket twice, but no reply. Not recommended if you are using K2 Joomla
Owner's reply

Dear Kevin,
The Live Search uses the search plugins, to show the result list. These search plugins from the 3rd party developers as your components. If these developers don't build a function to the search plugins - in this case the category exclusion - it is not a bug or mistake of the Live Search. We have many improved plugins, what contains many more features, and based on the original ones. If a customer need a feature, just write a support ticket, and we will help as always. This is how it has been worked many times.
We haven't found your support ticket. Please send your ticket number to info[at], and we will help you immediately.

Great module, BUT there is no language option... It cant be translated. This module is not usefull in multilanguage sites
Owner's reply

Dear servlet,
As you know from Joomla 2.5 you can create your modules for all available languages, then set the language options for the actual one. All of the text what the user can see on the frontend can be customize from the module manager. So it is translatable, and many statisfied customer use it on multilingual sites.

This is great add-on for each Joomla site, especially with a bigger number of articles or products. Plugins which offer search results with images are delivering professional look to my site. The only issue I found is lack of upgrades for plugins. Most of them is outdated and doesn't install on Joomla 2.5/3

Great module, like all the others. I have installed many modules produced by this company, all done well. Technical support is efficient and accurate!

I bought this module a few days ago, and I must say that it is awesome. Very customisable, very good at what it does. I needed help getting the images to work with ZOO items' Teaser Image and Jenő very efficiently did it for me. I would strongly recommend this module.

I really like universal ajax live search.

I use it for my virtuemart store ( 9000 products ) and I like the popunder that gives you the results as you type.

It has a nice interface, blends with the template very nicely, and is 10000% customiseable.

The only downside could be that it's a bit harsh on the server load with the live function it has, and that it doesn't display out of stock products when you search for them as an administrator.

Overall, it is a GREAT extension, and its price is very good too!
Owner's reply

Dear Bill,
thank you for your review!
As you can see on our site there is a Support system, where you can ask questions about the products.
If you make a ticket there, we can help you to find this not Universal AJAX Live Search related setting. I think it will be a Virtuemart option.

Only costs $20 and a very quick support response as I had a clash with JCH-Optimize. The images are an added bonus and noticed from a previous comment you can now disable the magnifying glass if you want to.
Thanks Great Extension

Its not cheap, for just a search module. But worth the price, no doubt. A lot of things to adjust, so you can configure it really as you like. Works great when you use the direct response. A list of found records is there within a second or two. If an image is present in the article it is used in the display. Very cool. Glad I bought it.
The only thing I miss is the ability to remove the search button, if you want to go for a full direct search. Made it white on white with no image, so its not visible, but would like to disable it completely.
