Hi
I am looking for a joomla module that shows all my articles in a certain category in the form of a list with the possibility of a quick search at the top (ajax).
I saw that exposed and widgetsbox are capable of showing articles in list form, but I was in doubt if it would be possible to search.
I also saw that in articlelibrary this is possible but the form of exhibition does not satisfy me.
my intention is to make a mobile version on my website transforming it into a pwa app. for that I need a "library" of articles where I can browse, list the articles, search for them and access them quickly !.
follow a picture of what I need

in the photo the search imput is missing

Hi thiagobarreto
Unfortunately both externsions did not offer any search / filter functionality yet. Does it have to be an AJAX search (incl. server query?) Why I ask: implementing such a search feature would take some time (and is on my ToDo list for the WidgetsBox anyway), but what I could implement faster would be a search filter, All articles would be loaded and you could filter the list via the search. The solution would be basically identical to the filter function in agile downloads, see demo here with a search field on top right:

Hi thiagobarreto
I have split the upcoming feature update, In the today released version 1.1.0 of the WidgetsBox is now a simple search filter for lists and grids built in, this does not load new articles via AJAX search but filters the initially loaded articles based on the entered search term, you can find a demo here: https://nx-designs.ch/ext/widgetsbox#list-widget
See the second list on the right side.
Maybe this already fulfills your requirements.
Kind regards

Wow! that's exactly what I need.
now one more question, is the filter just for the title of the article?
would it be possible to filter with the "text" inserted in a personalized field that contains within the content of the article?
because if it is just by the title it would make the search difficult because more than 2,000 articles will be inserted into these categories, it would need an efficient search.
I see that you work very well and with these upgrades your extensions would be more and more perfect! thanks!

Hi thiagobarreto
Such wishes are very individual and therefore to create an option for everything is very time and maintenance consuming, I hope you understand that. But nevertheless it is no problem to realize something like this, you can simply add such a triangle via CSS (custom.css) in your template:
.list-title{ 
position:relative
}

.list-title::after {
content: '\25B6';
position: absolute;
right: 0;
top: 10%; /* Fine tune as you like */
}
Alternatively
.list-title{ 
position:static; /*default*/
}

.list-title::after {
content: '\25B6';
position: absolute;
right: 0;
top: 4px; /* Fine tune as you like */
}
This would then look something like this:

Hope this helps :-)

about the possibility of filtering using not only the title of the article, but also the content or a personalized field ... will it be possible in a next update? if so I can buy and wait.
thanks

 Answer
This should be doable within some limits, this is what I've planned so far for the near future regarding SearchFilter:
1. SearchFilter can check Customfield value (needs first to implement customfields support)
2. SearchFilter can check article content (at least introtext, full article search could lead in too long waiting time on page load because the module then has to load each whole article...)
3. Advanced (AJAX based) filter option (need first to check for an easy solution to maintain configured layout options when filter applies)
Important: What I already know is, SearchFilter will not work with content created by a pagebuilder because those save the content differently...
kind regards

1. I believe that searching the custom fields and the title would be enough !. I would leave this field as a kind of "tags", it would work well for me.
2. agree that
loading the entire article would cause a delay in loading the page.

about the page creator, all my content is done on the original joomla platform.

thank you so much
