Introducing Low Search 3.0

12 November 2013 2 comments

It’s been over a year since Low Search 2.0 was released, and I’m happy to say that it’s become quite a popular add-on. More and more people recognise the strength and flexibility the add-on brings to the table. Today, there’s even more, courtesy of Low Search 3.

Shortcuts

Shortcuts are saved searches that you can name, group and sort. The names can be used instead of the long encoded query or query string, allowing you to create custom readable links and navigation. Shortcuts can be made manually, from the Search Log or via the front-end of the site.

Grid & Matrix search

The beefed up Field Search filter can now also target specific Grid and Matrix columns. It accepts the same values as the familiar native search:field_name parameters, and even more. Pretty cool stuff.

Better docs

I’ve tried to explain the concept of Low Search better with all new and improved documentation. Check out how parameters work, how they relate to the Low Search Filters and how to use them in the template tags. Once you get it, the sky’s the limit.

There’s even more than that. Things like the automatic search mode, default parameter values, and stars_with/ends_with parameters. Check out the changelog for a complete overview. Low Search 3 is available now on devot:ee for $65.
