Smart search in Virtuemart for Joomla 4
« on: December 25, 2021, 22:29:07 pm »
In view of own activities related to Joomla 4 and Vitutemart, curious to learn whether smart search is scheduled in  the first VM release for Joomla 4 as there only will be smart search in Joomla 4.

Our voluntary association looks for a free virtuemart plugin rather than a paid version for $ 59.90!

as a voluntary organisation why are you even bothering to look at J4?  J3 is fully supported for a till at least August 17, 2023 and it will be running on 1000's of websites for long after that.
There is nothing wrong performance or security wise with J3/VM3...

as for smart search the core VM search has nothing to do with the Joomla search  ... I suppose a plugin will need to be developed to integrate VM into the Joomla Smart Search .. isn't it just a a pre-indexation of search terms etc?

I have played with J4 for quite a while now and are hard pressed to find a single advantage over J3 ...  it's just different...  with some newer libraries.. and IMHO a clonkier admin

Smart Search is a powerful search engine that would elevate the search functionality in VM.

I suggest the project leadership to consider that.

Due to the implementation of VirtueMart on really big e-shops and experience with Elastic search, I am very worried that the implementation of Smart Search will be just another unfinished project that will not be used on really business sites.
I would be pleasantly surprised, if there was already a link to another DB for content indexing, then it might make a little sense.

Until then, it is useless to deal with this project, I would rather use Elastic Search.

Hello,

I am interested in this topic because in my company we are moving our site from joomla 3 to joomla 4, and we need the smart search to allow us to search the site in addition to content, virtuemart products and comments from the JComments plugin, which what if it could be done with the simple search of joomla 3.

Could you please tell me if there is already a plugin that allows smart search to add virtuemart products and JComments to the index? If not, how would it be possible to implement it on my site? what dou you recommend?

Thank you very much for your attention.
