Ease of use
Very intuitive to implement, and fine tuning is easy by changing the options.
Quick in response and fixing a minor bug that was reported by me.
I used this to: A job offer website to filter by location and the kind of vacancy
Excellent It's incredibly quick, allows my users to filter and find exactly what they want to see, supporting Categories, Tags, Fields

The fact there is also a component gives a higher degree of functionality & ease of use is amazingly simple, no coding knowledge is needed.
Sakis is amazingly helpful, he is quick & thorough in his replies, even suggesting adjustments to improve the performance of the site.
Well thought out & easy to use, even for a novice Joomla user. You can be up & running in no time.
I used this to: I have a huge database of Whisky bottle information as Articles. JFilters gives my users the ability to sort through the bottle archive by selecting all manner of differing whisky attributes & therefore filtering the huge list of results down to the key information they require.
The extension integrates seamlessly with the Smart Search component.
Ease of use
Configuration is pretty easy as is overriding the frontend design.
Ultra-fast support and very helpful people. They replied to my ticket in just an hour!
Really clear and well done step-by-step documentation. There is also a blog where you can find more info.

Does exactly what it is supposed to do. As mentioned in extension description, you can mix filters and smart search to get good UX.
Ease of use
Fast configuration to get a quick and dirty result and test functionnality. Then you can fix what is not so easy. But documentation is good.
Excellent. And friendly. I asked for a quite specific need and I got answers in very short time.
The extension is well documented with tutorials to make it completely clear.

There's one but JFilters is very easy to use and manage - even for Joomla newcomers - and works like a charm. You probably won't need it
I used this to: I was using another extension but less handy and with many compatibility issues. I've changed for the JFilters pro version to provide a smooth and efficient solution to filter the Joomla templates on templatejoomla - JFilters is the best filtering solution available for J4.
Extends the default Joomla category blog as well as the search filter.
Ease of use
Consists out of a component to predefine filters, menu items to define result pages and modules to create filters in the frontend.
Excellent. Asked for adding a feature - and got it implemented just one day later.
Comprehensive documentation is available. It right to the point.

Great Filter in use and in look and feel, doing what you can expect
Ease of use
Easy to setup and easy to use with fast support making it a great filter to implement
I used this to: Using it as jobboard filter with jobs (as articles), for a professional look and feel

THE best filter

Posted on 19 November 2022
Just works like a clock.
Alongside Joomla 4 custom fields it opens a lot of potential if you want to build directories, blogs, etc.
Ease of use
If you have the slightest idea about databases you are ready to go immediately - others might have to spend 10 minutes getting it
Absolutely excellent ! Had some issues with indexing - but Support spent the time required to find the Joomla Smart Search problem
Does what is has to without being complicated. Easy to understand. Easy to access
I used this to: Directory building and Learning platform for construction industry professionals.
It allows to filter not only on Categories and on Tags... but also on Custom Fields.
That combination makes it super powerful.
See the demo
Ease of use
As it is powerful, it is worth checking the doc or seeing one of the several live presentations made by the developer at JoomlaDays etc.
Always to the point.
New feature are coming regularly.
See the presentations made ao at JoomlaDay USA, JoomlaDay D-A-CH and at BasicJoomla
Besides the classical documentation there are also nice tutorials.
I used this to: I use it on several sites.
The best usecase so far is probably this one: Mois du Doc (in Belgium)
(btw there is also a plugin allowing it to use it direclty in YOOtheme, which makes it even more powerful)
