Filters

Now that you have created a filters group you can create some filters.

To create a new filter:

  1. Go to Minitek Live Search > Filters and click on "New".


    Creating filters

  2. Enter a title for the filter. The title will be displayed as the filter label in the front-end.

  3. Select a Content type. The value of this field will limit search results within items of the selected content type. You can leave this empty if you don't want the filter to search in a specific type only.


    Example 1: Filter without a content type

    Creating filter groups

    If you select the content map Category 1 then the search results will retrieve indexed items from all content types that are assigned to the content map Category 1.


    Example 2: Filter with a content type

    Creating filter groups

    If you select the content map Category 1 then the search results will retrieve indexed items from the Articles content type that are assigned to the content map Category 1.

  4. Group: select the filters group that this filter will belong to.

  5. Hide children nodes: select whether all children nodes (content maps) of this filter will be hidden.

  6. Active: Select whether the filter will be added to the form url and will be active on page load.

  7. Select the Content maps that will be displayed in this filter. The selected content maps must belong to the selected content type. For example, if the content type is Articles, then you must select content maps that belong to Joomla articles.

  8. Click on "Save & Close".
