In the internet world, searching is a must-have feature of all websites, it is the first thing we do when we want to have information about anything on the internet, such as information about new movies, events, people or anything else..

Search feature is also integrated in the first versions of Joomla. And it has been improved with Smart Search feature since Joomla 1.6. Although the search engine had been improved after multiple versions of Joomla, it was still a pure PHP implementation of a search engine, so it had many limitations in performance, search techniques and response time.

On large sites that has large amount of data, Joomla suggest that you should use a standalone search engine such as ElasticSearch or Solr instead of its default search solutions. And if you are building a complex site with Joomla that has data comes from multiple 3rd extensions, you can face multiple difficult problems with the search engine that can not be easy to be solved. The ThemeXpert team also faced such difficulties when they was trying to improve a search engine on their website.

We're glad that ThemeXpert team have found that our Geek ElasticSearch component is the solution to solve all that problems. Back to 2 months ago, Parvez Akther - CEO of ThemeXpert was looking for a solution to improve a search engine of his website, he saw our component on JED then contacted us for more information about it. After some conversations, he found that our component was what he need to enhance the performance of his search engine. And now the instant search on ThemeXpert is the result of a successful integration with our search solution.
