Easy Search plugin for Craft CMS 3.x
Craft's search functionality, powerful as it may be, is not as end user friendly as you'd like it to be. With Easy Search, your content editors can use predefined search queries ("search for all entries with an image field that's not empty") or build their own search query with a user friendly GUI.
This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0 or later.
To install the plugin, follow these instructions.
Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:
Then tell Composer to load the plugin:
composer require nilsenpaul/craft-easy-search
In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Easy Search.
Configuring Easy Search (optional)
If you want to be able to use predefined search queries with Easy Search, create a file in Craft's
config folder, named
easy-search.php. In this file, you'd add the following:
<?php return [ 'queries' => [ [ 'query' => 'title:*', 'label' => 'All items with a title', 'element' => 'craft\\elements\\Entry', // This is optional, and will make Easy Search only show this query on the Entries element index ], [ 'query' => 'image:*', 'label' => 'All items with an image', ], [ 'query' => '-image:*', 'label' => 'All items without an image', ], ] ];
