The Extended Search Form is enhanced with a ** Category Filter ** (navigator / category filter).
The module loads and shows the same component form. There's no need to redefine the fields or the search options already defined at component level.
So, you can show the Extended Search Form in any page, and submit to the component.
*** Search Mode ***
It has two modes of operation:
- SobiPro Native Search, it submits the query to SobiPro.
- Joomla Search, It submits the query to Joomla general search.
*** About Empty Search Mode ***
The Empty Search allows to return results even when there's no keywords, filtering only with the remaining fields.

Before writing this review we invited the publishers to work with us to troubleshoot the problem, as a socially responsible measure, in order to avoid similar difficulties for others, without sucess. We also consulted with SobiPro development (SigSiu) who indicate conflics are due to libraries other than those included in SobiPro or Joomla are used.
You may consider that in at least one case, upon publishing this extension, both the front-end and the back-end of a Joomla 2.5 site with the latest version of SobiPro became unavailable. Only through a full restore of the site files and databases was it possible to overcome the situation.
We reccomend care: A full backup before installing or publishing this extension.
The review is not based in the product.
The user contacted us asking for support about other product.
It's always a good advice to have an up to date backup, and test new software in a development environment.
The rest of the review is not right.
Keep up the good work!
Thank you Jered! We've improved the product with your help. ;-)
It's our pleasure to be helpful!!!
Thank you very much for your support.
