Smart Search and JFilters results as multi-column grid
The layout of the Smart Search results seems to got inspired by the results pages of the major search engines (e.g. Google, Bing). Although familiar to most of us, the single column list layout may not fit well under all sort of sites.
JFilters - YOOtheme Pro Integration
YOOtheme Pro simplifies the customization of the Joomla pages, favoring speed, without the need to write a single line of code. We were asked several times, whether the JFilters results can be customized through YOOtheme Pro and we made that possible.
Adding custom fields in the results of Smart Search and JFilters
The results page of the Smart search allows us to display some fields (image, category, date, etc.) but not custom fields. As the Joomla's custom fields provide a very flexible way for adding extra properties to our content, showing them to the search results can make the results more meaningful.
Showing images in the search results in Joomla 4.1 and above
Joomla 4.1 brought a new feature into the core. Now you can show images in the search results, just by configuring the Smart Search component appropriately. Do note that the same settings can be found in JFilters as well.
Using clickable custom fields and tags in your Joomla text
Many times our text includes keywords like custom fields and tags. Ideally we would like to have them as links that return other articles related/assigned to them.
