Project Description

Joomla Category search function not working on [url removed, login to view]

The Category search function (eg search all stories, search all FAQs) is not working.

It finds all occurrences of the search term (eg ‘school’) all over the website rather than just in the Category (eg ‘search all stories’) being searched. The ajax search window on the front page finds exactly the same set of search results.

I believe that Smart Search by Category is turned on but it is not doing the job.

It used to work two weeks ago, but not now. There was a Joomla update about this time that may have caused the function to stop working.

These are all the menus where it is required:

Success stories>search all stories

Information>recipes>search all recipes

Information>failsafe shopping list>search shopping list

Information>factsheets>search all factsheets

Support>frequently asked questions>search all FAQs

Newsletters>search all newsletters

Because they are not working, I have turned off these menus above except for ‘search all stories’, which I’ve left live so I can test whether it is working and so that you can see what how the search works.

Please provide an estimate of the time and cost required to fix this issue.
