FiboSearch and WordPress Block Editor
For many of you who started using WordPress with v5.0 (or: after 2018), the Block Editor (also called Gutenberg) is the WordPress editor.

Voice search, also called voice-enabled, allows the user to use a voice command to search the Internet, a website, or an app – this quote from Wikipedia should give us a general idea of how the voice may be used for any search-related tasks. With the advent of mobile devices and stationary – all powerful and capable of tapping into AI-aided potential to recognize user voice queries – it’s important to implement such features into modern e-commerces. Here’s our take on this issue.

Pirx – a bean-shaped search bar design you’ll love
Sometimes “the best looking” feature just isn’t good enough for your shop. That’s why we’ve taken up the challenge and designed a brand new design of FiboSearch search bar. We want it to look the exact opposite to our straight and angular Solaris, our default bar – to give it a soft, curvy and rounded feel that blends smoothly into the front of the store. We called it Pirx.
Lack of queries insight really hurts your sales
One of the greatest things about e-commerce is that, from an owner’s point of view, you can know exactly what your customers search for. There are plenty of custom analytical and diagnostic tools, accompanied by tons of research and data. But what happens when your clients don’t know the exact model of the item they want or simply… make a typo?
