Fantastic modules works out of the box.
whats best about this software is
its almost compatible with every template of joomla
its does not distrub any other extension in joomla
once you understand the concept, you can create multiple searches layout
Really Love it
Great job Andrey!
One thing that might help others in setting it up that wasn't intuitively obvious: for each Filter type that you want to display, you have to choose a corresponding option in the Select Extra field box. For example, my first Filter type is "Category multiple select." In the Select Extra field box, I chose "Not extra field 1" because there is no extra field associated with Category. Once I figured that out, my filters displayed correctly on the front end.
I had problems with my installation, ragarding the k2 version. Andrey was really qucik with his support. Thx.
I would say, the best module for K, definetely.
Great value for your money.
I can really recommend this great extension.
I had some special customizations I wanted added to this extension and the support from Andrey was above and beyond!!
Thanks so much for al your help!
Of course there are always things that could be different or better but then it would probably become a monster to maintain...
I recommend this extension, it has lots of functions that someway or another should meet your requirement.
If you want to use it with text fields this is the developer reponse:
"You need to use k2 extrafields with pre-defined values (not text) for
working fine with slider and other not text search fields (drop-down)."
So DOES NOT SUPPORT IT. This is not in the extension information before purchase it.
But the most dangerous thing is that if you use it with 6+ extrafields (in my case) then the native K2 finder plugin cannot reindex the K2 items when creating/editing and YOU CANNOT SAVE K2 ITEMS ANYMORE because the script execution time exceeds the default 30 seconds.
You have to disable the finder plugin, decrease the extrafields used in the module or modify your server configuration to increase the script execution time.
That REALLY RELEVANT INFORMATION wasn't also in the extension info. Breaking the K2 functionallity isn't enough relevant to warn users...
The support answered the email 48h after reporting the issue. So after spending my money I had also to spend my time debugging it to solve the K2 issue and keep my site working.
In fact, the problem is that you do not want all to understand better.
1) Work with text fields
It is support it, but it is needed easy manual adjustments.
2) "YOU CANNOT SAVE K2 ITEMS ANYMORE"
This issue can not be associated with this extension, because the module and plugin part does not affect to K2 functionality in save/edit items.
