Passing filter values via the url to Joomla Admin List Views

Passing filter values via the url to Joomla Admin List Views

We have already seen how you can introduce filters to list views in the Joomla admin & collate them under the Search tools menu previously in our Blog  last year. 

The Search tools filters are extremely useful to admins especially if your extension manages a lot of data. As a usability feature, Joomla retains the state of the filters to the ones last used by the user. 

In most cases, manually setting the filters will work just great for Admins. However there are some cases when knowing how to set filter parameters via the URL can be very useful.

Shika Beta 11 Out Now!

Shika Beta 11 Out Now!

It has been really long since the Beta 10 release of Shika! As we all know that we are really close to the stable release which can happen anytime soon. Entire feature list has been finalized and this is the Beta 11 we are rolling out.

You will be overwhelmed to see the number of Bug fixes (500+) done in Shika after Beta 10, especially if you are an Early Adopter!

Why is it taking so long to release a stable version?

  • Techjoomla has implemented a new stability matrix (Which will take our product's quality to new heights). All our products will undergo a deeper, closer QA tests.
  • Every change needs some time to be incorporated! Our devs are still used to Techjoomla's conventional QA and development methods and it is taking time for making them adapt to the new stability matrix.
  • We agree that this is time consuming but Rome was not built in a day! Shika 1.0 will be the most stable product delivered by us.

 We are blogging about the change in the Development and the QA process at Techjoomla. You have a look at the first blog here.

Socialads is not just an advertising tool for Joomla it is much more than that. It has plenty of stuff which can give your advertisers a whole new experience of advance trafficking and you can convert those in terms of revenue. One such feature in SocialAds is Geo-targeting.

Targeting is something which most of  the advertisers want to do by targeting a specific group of people whether it is based in age, gender, area or any community etc.  for their advertisements. In such a case, advertisers tend to focus on their unique selling proposition (what makes them different and better than competitors) and target specific markets.
