Help to find Extension for drop down box / filtering of articles

Postby G3XWH » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:56 am

I am looking to add several hundred articles which could be single HTML pages, .pdf files or word files of WW1 casualties to a local history website. What I need is a drop down list ofnames which can be filtered leading to a specific individual and hence article but so far failing to find this on the extensions site except possibly for Flexicontent but this seems to modify the whole site which would be to time consuming to re-work. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Richard,

Each time I see "filtering', I think that my module Simple Isotope might help. Take a look at my demo page https://www.conseilgouz.com/en/joomla-modules-plugin

On this demo page, I don't use drop down box, but it's possible to replace buttons with a listbiox.

It's a free module.

if you add standard custom fields to your articles you can use this free filter:
