Search filters not updating

6 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm restricting the Joomla Smart Search to K2 only and have created three filters that represent specific categories I'd like users to be able to search on.

When I first setup the plugin, there was only one category filter.

However, BT Smart Search has not picked up on the additional category filters on the frontend - they do show on the backend. I've selected 'none', but it still stubbornly refuses to show anything but the originally selected filter.

See screenshots attached.

I'm sorry i don't really understand your problem.

Did you mean: selected filter isn't showed in the module like it's configed in back-end?

Notice: when you choose None for Search Filter and choose show Advanced Search. it will show all taxonomy.

Thanks for the reply,

You've helped already, but I'm still struggling to get this setup the way I want. Because I only have content in K2 I only want to see K2 filters - not Author, Language, Content or any of the others.

At the moment on the front-end, I'm seeing all filters (see attachment 'front-end-search.png')

My smart search filters are setup like as per attachment 'smart-search-filters.png'.

And the module is setup as per attachment 'smart-search-module.png'

Where am I going wrong?
