F2C Search

Using the Item ID in the F2C Search module

In order to add some creativity and flexibility to the Search Results page we have added the Item ID parameter in the F2C Search module configuration.

An easy way to link other modules to the Search Results page is to create a Hidden Menu* with a link (to anything, it doesn't matter as it won't be shown) and call it for instance "F2C Search results page". When you have created the menu item it will have a item ID.

Set this Item ID in your F2C Search Module and if you want the module to be shown on your Search Results page simply link it to te menu item in the Hidden menu.

Next you can add any module to the Hidden Menu item. These modules (and all that are always shown) will be displayed on your search results page.

*A Hidden Menu is a normal Joomla! Menu for which the corresponding Menu Module isn't published. Creating a Hidden Menu with links allows you to create Item IDs to which you can link modules.

Different Search modules can have different search results pages, just create more unique item ids in your hidden menu and link them in the F2C Search Module.
