Question about EXTENDED FILTER FOR FLEXICONTENT

7 years 3 months ago #42479 by M.a.r.t.y.88
Hello,
I have a question about the extended filter for flexicontent.
I have created few fields with flexicontent (like features of a firm: dimension, revenue; nation).
Buying this filter, can i use the filters showed in the demo page
( demo.joomcar.net/flexicontent ), with MY fields? So, "Category", "acceleration", "price" etc. are fixed or are dinamic?

Exemple:
- create filter with the firms that have more than 30000€ of revenue
- create filter with firms that have more than 30 employee
- create filter with firms that stay in America

Can i do these operations with this filter, having create fieds like revenue, dimension and nation?

Thank you.
Waiting for your answer.
Best regards.

Hello

we are not author of this field,
but i think the "more" part of your questions is not possible without hacking the module


-- Flexicontent is Free but involves a big effort on our part.
Like the our support? (for a bug-free FC, despite having a long list of functions) Like the features? Like the ongoing development and future commitment to FLEXIcontent?

I ask the same question to the author of this module. His answer is the following:

"Hello, Martina.
Yes, you will be able to show this fields in the filter. In the demo page several dinamic fields, it is a 'Price', 'Acceleration' and 'Fuel type' fields, this field is 'Field' of flexicontent. But, fields view is depends of field type you use in flexicontent fields configuration."


So i think it's possible to do this without any hack.

If somebody knows with certainty if this is possibile, can reply this post allowing people who what to buy this module to know how it works.

Thank you.

Hello

also besides if you decide to buy this module,

have you seen the built-in filter appearance in each field configuration ? you can have
- RANGES: text, date, drop-down
- RADIO / CHECKBOX lists with instant filtering and automatic scrollbar
- single DROP down selection with filtering
- multiple DROP down selection (TAG-like)


Regards

Hello

1. go to each field and configure the display of field in category views (these are used by FC categroy view and FC filtering module)

2. Configure your category to show desired field filters
or
create a FLEXIcontent filtering module

Hello,
thank you for your instructions. Now i have enabled the built-in filter, but as you can see in the screenshot, i have a specific problem: for each field a have created, there are some items. But when i use the drop-down menu (in the built-in filter), appears only the first item, like shows the image.

www.mediafire.com/view/6q8cw85c8k3sch3/SC01.png

Every item was added using the following formalism:

2::Test2%% 1::Test1%% 0::Test0%%


What could be the problem?

Thank you.

Hello

1. when you set a field to be
- text searchable in search view
- or filterable in search view (your case)

you need to go to search index TAB and recreate the index

2. By default only values assigned to existing items are shown

e.g. if a value is not used by any items it will be hidden or it will appear disabled

e.g. is value 'Test2' used by a published item

Hello,
1. The fields are setted in the right way.
2. Yes, i confirm what you said, but the problem is not this.

Analyzing the problem, i saw that there is no problem for the text field, they works fine.
The problem are the list fields, in fact their items are not shown, like the text fields.

Could the problem be the folliwing formalism (despite it works in the insert form of items)?

2::Test2%% 1::Test1%% 0::Test0%%

Thank you.

In the search index page (in back-end), the second to last column is "Search Index", and has the right values.
The last column, "Value ID - for indexable values", has nearly all values 0. The only right values are the text fields, the other ones (selectlist) are 0!
Could be this the problem?

Thank you
