Filtering Module

The filtering module, shows the filters to the front-end.


  1. Go to System > Manage > Site Modules to open the module manager.
  2. Press 'New'.
  3. Select JFilters Filters.


As with any module, publish it, put it in a module position and assign a menu item. More on that in Joomla Modules Documentation.

Loaded Filters

Select or exclude the filters that will be loaded in the module. Use that setting if you want to restrict the module to load ONLY specific filters.


By leaving this setting to "All /Auto", will load all the filters and their options, relevant to the page's content.

Load Results using Ajax

Use ajax to update the results and the JFilters modules. This can make the user experience way faster, giving an "app like" feeling.

Enable that if you want the filters to refine the results of the smart search component.

Results Page

The page that will be used to show the results of that filtering module. Setting that properly affects the type of the loaded filters and the type/context of the returned results.

Save the module, and you are done.

thumbs up Well done! Visit your front-end to see the filters.
