Thank you very much for this extension. It`s awesome. A good improvement would be to make it show searched for phrases inside the preview text (bold, color), but the rest is ok!

this is a great plugin, works perfect out of the box. even, after installing i wanted to modify a feature, so i wrote to the developer, hoping to get instructions which part of the code i should change and in stead of that the next day i got a new version by mail, where my desired feature is selectable in the admin interface ... (left or right position of the search button) ... so ... perfect extension with perfect support. Thanks a lot
