Works really well

4 Sep 2017

Both the plugin itself, as well as the underlying search engine work really well.

Installation and setup was a matter of a few minutes. Configuring all features of FINDOLOGIC admittedly took a few minutes more, but the search was ready to go and delivered precise results right from the start.

Dear Marko,

thank you for your dedicated feedback!
We're looking forward to guide your users with measurable best FINDABILITY within your store. Especially on mobile devices.

Sunny regards from Salzburg,

Awesome search engine

13 Jul 2017

Considering if I need another search engine then default one, I've came across this plugin and decided to give it a try.

Smart suggest which is in essence auto-suggest usual feature, is working ultra fast and has many configurable options. So great functionality. We can avoid overwhelming customers with too much irrelevant info or too many steps to reach a desired item. You have control on everything there, what to show and how to show, even is possible to restyle it, emphasize something etc right from this tool.

Thinking of how people are impatient to find what they are looking for, I found this one of a great help.


Magic is real!

12 Jul 2017

Maybe it sounds silly, but FINDOLOGIC (Suche) API by FINDOLOGIC opened our shop to a world.
Plugin code solutions shaped into Shopware's elegant shell, provide to you, as a end user or determined developer, numerous possibilities. Manage your items appearance, filter just what you can imagine and have results served to you in a pinpoint of a second.
Simplicity of a code in a combination with powerful engine behind the scene makes this plugin a great tool in Shopware!


Installation manual

Important notice!

This plugin is compatible with Shopware Version 5.2.x. It supports only one of FINDOLOGIC's integration methods, namely API.   If your shop is running on a newer Shopware version, please install the FINDOLOGIC Search & Navigation plugin.


The Shopware 5 API plugin installation procedure is basically the same as for any other Shopware 5 plugin. It can be summed up in a few simple steps:

Installing the Plugin

  • FINDOLOGIC/Service URL: Service-URL, provided by FINDOLOGIC (can be found in the FINDOLOGIC customer account in the menu item "Master data")
  • Number of records per export step: How many articles are exported at one export step (depended on the server performance/speed)
  • Number of articles per page (seperate multiple items with semicolon ";"): Set the number of search results per page. If you specify more than one value, the users can choose among these values themselves.
  • Display category navigation on top: Displays category navigation filter at the top (instead of left)

  • To finalize the configuration it is necessary to set up the export in the FINDOLOGIC customer account.
  • Export URL: The Export-URL is like: SHOP_URL/FinExportAPI/Export
  • The correct CSV filename can be found at the last export step, this can be triggered like SHOP_URL/FinExportAPI/Export/start/10000000
  • There are an output like File/export/findologic_1_de_de.csv


Version 6.0.2

  • The FINDOLOGIC logo in the plugin description will be loaded from our CDN.

Version 6.0.1

Search terms containing special characters will be displayed correctly

Version 6.0.0

Caution: This release breaks the compatibility with previous versions, upgrade only if you know what you are doing.

We highly discourage non-techies from updating the plugin on their own. Due to the new structure (see "Structural changes") it won't be obvious where to move eventually existing customizations.

Also the export URL changed from /FinSearchAPI/export to /FinExportAPI/export.

Which means that in case you updated the plugin without making the required configuration changes in our backend, we won't be able to guarantee that the exported product data is up-to-date.

Structural changes:

Code parts have been split up into separate components in favor of more readable, easier to debug and more stable code. Which is why this release isn't backward compatible.
