    Very easy to use, adds search () method. Can be used both on the frontend and in the backend. In the administrative panel, you can flexibly configure the search engine. The synonyms field appears in the products.

    Очень прост в использовании, добавляет метод search(). Можно использовать как на фронтенде, так и в бекенде. В административной панели можно гибко настроить работу поискового механизма. В товарах появляется поле синонимов.
