Search Content Advanced Plugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
A great replacement for standard Сontent Search plugin. Advanced version allows you to exclude or include certain categories and articles from search results, limit them by archived or featured articles, search in article titles only.


• Greatly improved and simplified searching algorithm, comparing to standard Joomla content search plugin.
• Exclude categories from search results or include only certain categories (or do both).
• Exclude articles from search results or include only certain articles (or do both).
• Search areas selection (all, archived, featured or titles only) in front-end for more user friendly experience.
• Show or hide "Articles" or "Archived" label before category title in search results.
• Display article image as thumbnail in search results (see instructions on how to enable this).
• And all other stuff the standard Joomla content search plugin can do.


• FIXED: Search query returned wrong results, when categories or articles were excluded/included.
