Give your Joomla ZOO app users advanced searches and filtering based on any data that is an element's values with ZOOfilter.
You determine the elements that your users will be able to include in the search and you can control how the results are rendered - all using standard ZOO extension layouts. You aren't limited to the number of filter elements that you include, even core elements. And you can also search with ranges! You can choose to search from, to, between or even outside a given range!
If you don't want your users to have control over the filter and searching but just want to present your ZOO items filtered in a specific way you can do that too.
Even though there is little information on the site itself (it made me hesitate to buy the product at first) the documentation is clear.
The support you get is superb. They even added new features on request.
If you follow the documentation you can easily add extensive filter/search methods to your ZOO site. You can set search filters on all kinds of fields which makes it a perfect tool for product catalogues or recipe sites.
Because you can filter on any field you want with ZOOFilter, you don't have to put all the filterable fields in the ZOO Category field anylonger.
This also makes your life as a webmaster easier when adding new ZOO items via the back-end (no longer scrolling in that long list of categories for selecting all items in different subcategories!).
I can personally recommend this extension to any ZOO user.
Directly after the release of Zoo 2.5 Zoolanders issued a beta version of their filter, which had some minor issues.
They showed to have very customer friendly support and went out of their way to solve the issues. Thumbs up for these guys.
