TOPIC: Filtered search results for Joomla 1.5.25 site

Filtered search results for Joomla 1.5.25 site 2 years 1 month ago #40601

Greetings!
The Joomla 1.5.25 site in question has a members-only area for registered, paid members. We want to install a search module which will NOT display results from the private area. We want to be able to display results for articles that are PUBLIC only.

Can you recommend a search extension for this capability?

Or, am I missing something in the settings for the native search module? I see a Set ItemID that I don't understand, but it seems to only involve menu items, which won't help me, I don't think.
thanks,
Hope

Hi Hope,

Every search should already do this by default. Could you double check please? Make sure you're not logged in when you try it.

For example, on our site if you search for "WordPress 3.3 Course Overview" when you're logged in, you'll see it. However, when logged out, you won't.

Kind regards,
Nick

Doh! My client was freaking out because she saw results that she didn't want shared with the unsubscribed, but no doubt she was logged in at the time. If not, I'll be back. Thank you, oh wise and patient Nick. :)

Well, as it turns out, my client needs some public pages to be left out of the search results, like thank you pages that appear after a purchase from this store: www.documentaryhowto.com/documentary-dvds-books-and-cds. So I'm thinking of suggesting this: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/search-...ng/site-search/12819 unless you have a better idea. I believe this extension lets you assign the categories being searched, which should work.

Hi Hope,

That sounds like a good plan for the requirements. Since it's a commercial extension, I would double check with the developers before purchasing. For example, can you select more than one category for the filter since the category filter is singular rather than plural in the description?

Kind regards,
Nick

Nick, I'm back on this issue and you gave me great advice. I checked with the developer who kindly steered me away from buying his extension with this answer:
unfortunately you can't select a list of categories to list for the frontend filter, you can select a parent category but then it will display all the subcategories.
It seems that this extension isn't what you're searching for but feel free to contact us for any question about this or any other DM extension.

I wrote back and asked if he could recommend another extension.

Since your last post above, have you heard of another search module that will do this?

thanks,
Hope

Wouldn't these be set for registered viewers only?

DOH! It's possible that the problem pages could be assigned to registered viewers. I'm looking into that. Great thought, Ed! I'll let you know.

Thanks, Tessa! I'm waiting for a list of pages that my client doesn't want to display in search results. Hopefully they can all be registered. I'll let you know how it works out.

Closing this topic for some housecleaning ;) If you still have problems with this issue, could you open a new ticket? You don't need to reply to this message.

Cheers,
Ed
