Thread Filter by AddonsLab

Thread Filter by AddonsLab 1.8.0

No permission to buy ($49.99)
This version introduced two substantial enhancements - ability to filter threads by keywords and by tags. Both features are configurable and can be turned off in product's options. Keyword search can be configured to search in thread title only or both title and the content of the first post. Both fields support AJAX mode. In the background, XenForo search engine and the cache is used to filter the threads.

This release also fixes two logical bugs reproduced by our customers. One was causing empty search result page when searching all messages by a user. This scenario is more likely to happen when the user searched has a large number of threads created with many custom fields for each thread. Another problem would cause the search results to include threads that don't match single-choice custom field values entirely but only partially. As these fields are not entered by users in a free-form but the values are chosen from a predefined list, the expected behavior is an exact match of selected options, which is how it will work after the fix is applied.

In this version, we have implemented Auto Reload option via AJAX.

Any change in the filter form will update the list of threads via AJAX and show the filtered list along with active filters. Clicking on active filters on top of the list will remove the filter and update the list without a full page reload as well.

At the same time, current URL keeps updating with the latest filter data, so users can just copy the URL and send it via IM and the URL will represent their currently filtered list (supported in modern browsers only).

Please note, that activating "Auto Reload" feature server load will increase considerably if you have too many threads. Every update of the list causes two AJAX queries, one of them running the search engine to get the filtered thread list.

Feel free to test the filtering on our demo board at https://xf2.addonslab.com/index.php...order=thread_fields_date_input&direction=desc (filter of last 2 months is active via this URL that makes the load times reasonably fast).

Here is a screenshot showing the filter in action:

This is the next version with another enhancement planned - sorting thread list by custom field values. The fields with numeric representation (numbers, date, rating) will now be available in sort options for a forum where they are available. The fields can be chosen to be added to the list from Edit Field page.

Here is a link showing sorted thread list - https://xf2.addonslab.com/index.php...er=thread_fields_numeric_input&direction=desc

Hello everyone,

In this version we have enhanced the locations where thread field values can be shown on forum view and search pages. Now admins can easily choose any number of fields to be shown in a separate column, under thread title or as a thread prefix. In search results, only the prefix and under thread title locations are available.

This version is not backward-compatible with the 1.3.x version in terms of field location selection, so after installation please go to Edit Forum page and choose the locations for each field.

Here are some screenshots showing the fields in their new location and admin panel page for editing forum:
