We are using sphinx search for our price comparison website. We are looking for an experienced Sphinx search expert to do the following:
1a. To auto fill searches with drop down selection of products that have such words or string of letters (after 2 characters are typed in) in their TITLES and Description, Brand etc that are already being used in our Sphinx search today.
1b.. In auto fill, each suggestion will appear in the following way:
Product TITLE in black color on the left side and the Lowest price of that product on the right in shart red color. IF product image can be displayed before titles that will be great.
2. Implement "Do you mean" function with suggestions from words in our product TITLES that in our database are similar to the type in word.
The above 2 is necessary when a visitor does not choose from the Auto suggested results as he searches. This way misspelt words will generate "Do you mean:" the words from our database close to the one typed in.
You have to know what you are doing. We need this function to be stable and NOT MEMORY CONSUMING. In your PM after entering your bid, tell us how you will reduce Memory usage and unwanted reading from disk.
You will need to have Skype for chat during this project.
