How to access

From the administrator area, select Components → Smart Search from the drop-down menu of the Administration screen, then click on the Search filters menu bar item. This will show a list of the current search filters. Click on the New or Edit toolbar icons to show this screen.

Quick Tips

  • Smart Search was introduced in Joomla 2.5 but is not enabled by default in that version.
  • If you are new to Smart Search then you should read the Smart Search quickstart guide.


This screen allows you to create a new search filter or amend an existing one.



At the top right you will see the toolbar:


The functions are:

  • Save. Saves the search filter and stays in the current screen.
  • Save & Close. Saves the search filter and closes the current screen.
  • Save & New. Saves the search filter and keeps the editing screen open and ready to create another search filter.
  • Save as Copy. Saves your changes to a copy of the current search filter. Does not affect the current search filter. This toolbar icon is not shown if you are creating a new search filter.
  • Cancel/Close. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
  • Help. Opens this help screen.
