  • Report

Minitek Live Search is a cutting-edge, feature-rich search component and module that allows users to search for:

  • Joomla articles, categories
  • K2 articles, categories, authors
  • Jomsocial users, groups, events, albums, photos, videos
  • Virtuemart products
  • FAQ Book Pro Questions, Topics FAQ Book Pro 3.3.0+

Create your own custom search results categories with the innovative Search Instance taxonomy. Live search results will be displayed as soon as the user starts typing a word in the search field.

Apart from the AJAX module, the component also includes a component page in the frontend where the search results are grouped according to the custom Search Instances.

Functionality
100% ideal for product search of virtuemart
Ease of use
very easy - slight issue caused by server set up but quickly addressed by developer who updated the product
Support
faultless - answered when he said he would - and went the extra mile
Documentation
documentation was fine
Value for money
yes - definitely
I used this to: a virtuemart store that is used as an online brochure
Functionality
Exactly as advertised. It is great.
Ease of use
Awesome for the users. Dead simple, looks good and perfect funtion.
Support
Great ... had minor issues which were fixed quickly.
Documentation
Very good.
Value for money
Great. Part of subscription which was worth every cent. Got this, Forum (discussion) and FAQ which we'll use immediately.
I used this to: Minitek FAQ instant search results. Support great. Will only work (like all Minitek stuff) if your site is error free. In our case, we had errors due to Rokbooster. We turned this off; everything worked perfectly. Existing errors on the site were 90% of our issues with setup.
Functionality
Works great with FaqBook Pro which is what I wanted it for
Ease of use
I found it a little intimidating before I read the documentation but it was easy set set up and worked right off the bat.
Support
Have not needed support yet.
Documentation
I read and followed the documentation step by step and everything worked as expected on the first try. No issues at all with docs.
Value for money
Well worth the money for FaqBook Pro. It should help reduce the number of duplicate questions tremendously.
I used this to: providing a search function for FaqBook Pro. It is clean, works exactly as I would expect it to, and should drastically cut down on the number of duplicate questions I get. I am sure my customers will really find it useful. Great job Yannis!

Doesn't work properly



Posted on 13 August 2015
Functionality
Everything worked except the live search component. It kept coming back with no results, though the search page itself was finding articles
Ease of use
Not too easy to set up. Follow the directions 100% and you will get something, but like in our case, may or may not work
Support
Support insisted on access to a clients firewall but they would not allow access to 3rd party. Gave screenshots but no help.
Documentation
Confusing and sparse. Just more or less follow what they wrote to set it up.
Value for money
Would be GREAT value for money if it worked.
I used this to: Joomla website for a large casino. Support refused to help and just issued a refund rather than get on skype and see the problem in action.
Owner's reply: Dear client,

Thank you very much for the review and the feedback.

Minitek Live Search is a two year old extension and it is very stable.

It works out of the box if you follow the simple instructions that are described in our documentation section at http://www.minitek.gr/support/documentation/joomla-extensions/components/minitek-live-search

You say "Support insisted on access to a clients firewall". This is not true. I never insisted on you giving me access to your client's firewall
(You can see the support ticket here: http://www.minitek.gr/images/jed/disp1.jpg).
What I asked was a link to a live site where I can see the problem.

As I explained to you in the support ticket, if I can't see your website it is impossible to know what is the problem.
The screenshots you sent me were inadequate to explain the problem you were facing.

If you had provided me with a live demo version of your website (even a stripped one), I would be happy to assist you and the problem would have been solved within a few minutes.


Functionality
Very good Functionality! It shows results when you are typing so you can get what you need without even writing the whole phrase!
Ease of use
There are a lot of settings because you can have multiple "search modules" for many purposes.Pay attention on configurations and you're done
Support
Support is even better than component! They solved a lot of problems that I had with template issues telling me what to do with css! QUICKLY
Documentation
Online documentation guide you step by step to a simple configuration.
Value for money
When you watch this "Live Search" running on your website ... you'll be glad you payed for It! :-)
I used this to: Some search for my websites ... you can see It on top here: www.impavidapallavolo.it or www.parestrano.it
