Menus select your menu and press the "New" button.
As "Menu Item Type" select
JFilters > Results.
We do NOT want this menu item to be visible to the users.
Our suggestion is to either hide it using the
Link Type > Display in Menu setting or put it under a menu, which is not visible in the front-end.
As Alias, we suggest setting something that is relevant to your content.
e.g. If the site (or the used filters) are about wines, you can set 'wines' as alias.
We will explain the settings under the Options tab, as the other are common settings for all the menu items in Joomla.
If a primary filter is selected, that filter will use as an alias, that menu item's alias. That means that the urls will be shorter and more specific to the site's content.
only root filters can be used as Primary Filters.
The following settings exist also in the Smart Search's menu item, since both JFilters and the Smart Search use the same layout for showing the results.
Shows meta-data like: type, author, category and language to the result items.
Shows a short description to the result items.
Shows an image to the result items.
We can set a class to the image.
