Form Fields

  • Title. The Title for the search filter.
  • Alias. The internal name of the search filter. Normally, you can leave this blank and Joomla will fill in a default value. The default value is the Title in lower case and with dashes instead of spaces. You may enter the Alias manually. Learn more about Aliases.

Edit Filter

  • Map Count. The number of content maps included in the search filter.
  • Toggle Selection. The Toggle Selection button will change all the selections in the opposite way. So selected will change into unselected and unselected will change into selected.
