Settings

In order for the module to work, you need to go to the payment section and make a payment. After payment, the developer will send you a unique ID. Having a unique ID, go to the module settings Extensions/Extension/Multisearch Store.
Let's go through each field of module settings.
  • Multisearch Store ID
Enter the unique ID received from the developer.

  • Category of module placement
This is a very important point. Before choosing the category in which the module will be connected, we recommend creating a new, empty category for this module and not fill it with goods. For example, create a category "Search results on the site", fill in Meta Tag Title, Meta Tag Description, Meta Tag Keywords and save. After this select the created category from the dropdown list.

If you select an existing category with products, then nothing terrible will happen, just the module will use this category to display the search results, after which products of this category will be displayed.

  • CSS selector
Nn this field you must specify the css element selector, when you click on which the block for entering search phrases will be activated and showed. There can be as many elements as you like, then separate the css selectors with a comma. For example, you can specify a selector for a search input or a button with a magnifying glass ( .form-control.input-lg, #search .btn-default ).

Specify css selector for search text input field that used by script of extension for opencart Multisearch Store

  • Product image width and Product image height on the search results page.
Height and width of the image in search results on a static search page (not in a popup window).

Width of the product image on the search results page and the height of the product image on the search results page

  • Products per page
The number of products on a static search results page. Page navigation will be work.

  • Products in popup window
I think comments are unnecessary.

  • MMeta Tag Title, Meta Tag Description и Meta Tag Keywords
If these fields are left empty, then the data will be taken from the category in which the module is connected. However, if you want to set up these fields for SEO, then we recommend filling them using the #searchword# tag.

I will give an example and everything will become clear. For example, a user typed in the search box "force activator", then for search engines you can display such relevant keywords as "buy a force activator", "sale a force activator" etc. To do this, fill in the Meta Tag Keywords field as follows "buy #searchword#, sale #searchword #" and the power is activated;).

Fill Meta Tag Title and Meta Tag Description in the same way.

  • Setting up Yandex.YML
This module generates the upload of data that are involved in the search. Go to the Modules / Extensions section, find the Yandex.YML module, click the edit module button. Select the settings you want, save the module, then go into it again and check unloading data by clicking on the link specified in the item "Export address".
The Yandex.YML module will create an upload of your products. Our program will index this unloading and search for goods or services on it.


Form the desired data export , playing with the parameters of the settings and if you have reached your desired result, then send the resulting link to me. Every hour our program will update the export of data and your online store will give the correct results search.


I wish you a pleasant experience with the Multisearch Store module.
