Thread Filter by AddonsLab 2.5.0

No permission to buy ($49.99)
Hello everyone,

we are planning a major update of the product, that will include a new type of custom fields - Location and related tools. This custom field type will allow entering location-related information, optionally allowing to choose the country, state (if applicable), city, zip code, street address. This information will be stored in the database, and filters will allow searching/filtering by this information. Filter form will allow finding any items within X km/miles from a given address.

The update will also include other, less significant enhancements - filter threads by their open/locked status, filter by multiple prefixes, etc. If you have any suggestions for this major update please let us know.

The release will be made first for Thread Filter, but will later be rolled to be available for all other Filter add-ons we have developed.

The price for this add-on and other filter add-ons will be changed to 59.99 USD with 40 USD branding removal fee. The change applies to new purchases only, nothing changes for existing services.

Thank you!

The version fixes a PHP error caused by Elasticsearch 2.x incompatibility. Your installation is not affected by the issue if filtering brings any results with ES enabled. We have also implemented a new option to set Cache TTL controlling how long the results of the search should be cached in the MySQL database. Setting the option to 0 will disable the cache. The option should be used only to troubleshoot issues that could be caused by invalid cache.

Due to a limitation on how many items are returned by the initial search based on keywords (200 by default), their further filtering by category and custom fields could end up with a missing or incomplete list of found items. The issue is fixed now by raising the limit based on the option "Maximum result count" (10000 by default).

The release fixes a bug with sorting by numeric fields. Threads with blank numeric fields will be excluded from result list instead of being listed on top when sorting the results in ascending order.

To apply the fix for all existing threads please run Admin Panel -> Tools -> Rebuild Caches -> Rebuild Thread Fields

This update adds a new option to disable some of the default fields - "Sort by", "Last updated" and "Started by".

A bug was introduced in the latest version with the support of HTML tags in option values, that caused a template error shown in when searching threads by keywords. The issue is fixed now.

The release also includes a new bug-fix for XenForo 2.1.x version, where sortable options would not be shown in "Sort by" list.

We have verified XenForo 2.1 + XenForo Enhanced Search 2.1.0 compatibility. This version also adds a new option to disable filterable lists, which seem to cause some issues on mobile devices. Please verify that the feature works for you or disable it until further development and confirmation, that the feature can be used safely on all devices.

This release also contains a minor fix for our customers who use Resource Filter with Thread Filter, which would cause one of the add-ons breaking when another one is uninstalled. This version is also fully compatible with XenForo 2.0.x version.
