Componet Search – Restricted by Language

Post by yordan2018 » Tue Jul 23, 2019 10:12 am


I have a multilingual website, where the users have the opportunity to search different articles by using the default search component – "com_search".

As default, the search results are restricted by language – it means, if I am on the english version of the website, I am getting only the english articles by searching.

Is it somehow possible to disable this restriction?
What I need is to show by searching all matching results regardless of language.

Thank you.
