DJ-ContentFilters available field types

The DJ-ContentFilters extension allows building search mechanisms based on Joomla's additional fields. In the following tutorial, you'll learn what types are available in DJ-ContentFilters and how to link them to additional fields in your Joomla

Due to the fact that DJ-ContentFilters only works in the context of a category blog. The additional fields we want to apply cannot be assigned to all categories. All fields that we intend to apply within a category should be assigned to the blog category or its children



Available types
