I would like to know how "AKA" works in the Search Generic field.

I need to search a title in multiple  #__content tables (joined using Seblod search join field) and I was wondering if "Aka Target [aka]:value" can help me with that.

I was looking for answers on this forum and  this website but didn't find any info how to use or set  AKA.

Thanks for help

Hi iliil,

yes the AKA is done for that.

Each time you want to jon the same table, simply fill the AKA with a unique name.

Hi Lionel

That's how AKA works in the SEARCH JOIN plugin. But I am asking about the SEARCH GENERIC plugin.

I have let's say 2 content types. "Companies"(Joomla article) and "Workers" (Joomla article incl. company ID field)

In the company search list, I would like to search for a company based on the Worker's Name (Workers #__content.title). 

I use Search Join Plugin to successfully join the workers #__content table.  

If I add art_title field into Search Generic it looks for the Company's #__content.title ONLY, not the joined Worker's #__content title).

Does it make sense?

Is there a way how to achieve this?
