Hi,


I have made a Search Type but if I click on Submit button the URL of search result looks like:

/index.php/search?cck=book&book_title_search_text=book&art_state=1&search=concatenate_field_search&task=search


The URL have all my fields names, which I added in Search Form, I don't want to show these field names.


I know it is very basic question but, please do let me know how to shorten the above Url?


Thanks & Regards,

Umair Hassan Raja

Hi Umair,

At first I advise you to enable Apache URL rewrite and the related options in Joomla configuration.

You must create a Joomla menu link on your SEBLOD search to have a nice URL.

After that of course when the user will do a search, you will see the parameter in the URL.

You can hide the search form if you wish on the options of the SEBLOD list Joomla menu link (it becomes a list).

If you don't want to see specific fields of the search form you can hidden it in your search type or hide them from the menu link.

Regards.

Hi Bes,


Thank you for your answer. 

I have enabled Apache URL rewrite. I am already using a Menu for this Search. All works perfectly. But my concern is as following:

You said:

After that of course when the user will do a search, you will see the parameter in the URL.

Is it possible to remove parameters from the URL? I don't want to show red parameters in URL.

/index.php/search?cck=book&book_title_search_text=book&art_state=1&search=concatenate_field_search&task=search


Please do let me know if it is possible.


Thanks & Regards,

Umair
