Visforms Search Tools
Search user inputs using the Visforms search tools
This feature is part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version..
The search tools are a package that includes two extensions.
- The extension vfsearchbar enables you to add a search bar to the frontend data views of Visforms data.
- The search plugin enables you to search user inputs, submitted with Visforms, using the Joomla! search component and search module
Create a web portal with Visforms
We think, that this extensions have much potential and can help you building some sort of portals with Visforms. One use that comes into mind is a Job portal, where people can submit their experiences with a form and other people can search the website for people with a specific experience. Because it is possible to create almost any sort of form with Visforms and add any specific fields you may need, easily, you are very flexible about the sort of "portal" you can build with Visforms. Actually it doesn't matter whether this portal is about jobs or car sharing, private tutoring or dating, because you are always able to create exactly the form you need.
As Visforms since version 3.5.3 enables you to set the access level for the data view on field level, you can hide the user inputs of selected fields (for example the fields with the contact information) from the frontend view and require people to log in (or register) on your website in order to gain this information.
