And as others have said, Andrey, the developer is very responsive. When K2 had it's recent 'hiccup' with Extra Fields not working correctly in the front end editor Andrey was quick to update K2filter too and, on request, provided me with an updated version.
In my opinion this module is superior to the Joomlart one. 2 big winners for me are the ability to have the search results match the original category layout. Not possible in the Joomlart version. And the search box, slider, selector options are more extensive in this one.
Top marks all round.
Deserves 5/5 stars.
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.
