Community Builder Search Plugin
The CB Search Plugin adds native search functionality into Joomla 1.5 for Community Builder 1.2 and above. It has been based on the original version by meuchel for CB 1.1 and has been upgraded to use the Joomla 1.5 search API.
It has the ability to set the menu Itemid for the search results (usually the main Community Builder menu item) as well as choose the name for Profiles and limit the number of search results returned. It can either search all profile fields except any defined in the blacklist or only fields defined in the whitelist. The default fields to be displayed in the search result can also be configured along with the name format and date.
- Install the plugin through the normal Joomla Install/Uninstall page
- Edit the 'Search - Community Builder' plugin on the Joomla Plugin Manager page
- Enter the menu Itemid for Community Builder and any other parameters as required
- Enable the plugin and consider creating indices on the fields to be searched
