Adjusting Category order in Joomla Smart Search

Post by miberts » Fri Jun 14, 2024 1:24 pm

Hi there,

I am running a Joomla 4.4.5 site with the smart search component.
It is indexing articles, categories, key words, weblinks and events from Jevents finder module.

My problem is, that events always show at the very end of the search result list, althouth they are most relevant to the searched text. If have tried to change the order of the finder plugins, but that does not have any effect.

Is there any possibility to change the order of the results, so that events are shown at the beginning of the results?

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend

Best regards

Michael

While you mentioned you've tried changing the order of the finder plugins, also check if there are settings within the Smart Search plugin itself (for JEvents) that allow you to configure how results are ranked.

No, there is no such possibility.
