Joomla Search with multi-select drop down and field groups?

1 month 3 weeks ago #323903 by ericmuc
Hi,

In the Joomla plugin "Search - Community Builder" I can choose the cb fields for the search.

But I have the multi-select drop down fields in a field group. There not the country names are stored in the user profile but the country 3 alpha code, to have in all different languages the right name to show.

So my questions are:
1) is there a possibility (planned) to use the Joomla search for finding the content stored by such single or multi-select drop down fields?
2) I have searched for the country code stored in a group field with the Joomla search without success, is that possible somehow?

Thanks, best regards
Eric

No, search is always applied to the value. It will not search by select field labels.

2) I have searched for the country code stored in a group field with the Joomla search without success, is that possible somehow?

It should be possible to search a field group using the CB Search Bot with Joomla search module since it tries to use our userlist API to build the query, but you'll need to be sure to select the field group field in the plugins Fields parameter. It's possible this might not work though as searching field groups is complicated and if your database doesn't support JSON functions it also is inaccurate.

Hi,
By searching for the best way to give the user good search possibilities in my site and learned, that there are some technical limitations in the user list search with field groups I would like to ask you:

1) is there a possibility (planned) to use the Joomla search for finding the content stored by such single or multi-select drop down fields?

No, search is always applied to the value. It will not search by select field labels.


Could it be possible in future releases to can search with the Joomla CB search plugin with multilanguage drop down fields? So that the translation value of the currrent language can be typed in and the search is done with the stored value in the field?

Thanks and best regards

No, sorry. There isn't a reliable or efficient way of doing that.
