Hi folks, 

Today, I'm so happy to share with you a simple way to achieve an advanced search like our demo making use of TZ Portfolio+ extra-fields. Advanced search will help your visitors to sort specific articles containing one of the selected fields. Extra fields play a role like additional information belonging to a portfolio article. Are you playing around to find the right way on this? This tutorial is yours. Here we go!

1. Create field group and fields

  • Go to Admin > Components > TZ Portfolio Plus > Field Groups > New
  • Go to Admin > Components > TZ Portfolio Plus > Fields > New

Create categories / portfolio articles

  • ​Go to admin > Components > TZ Portfolio Plus > Categories > New
  • Go to admin > Components > TZ Portfolio Plus > Articles > New
  • Assign the category to specific group field, and articles in this category will inherit group field from its category

Add new module TZ Portfolio+ Filter

Our Advanced Search is based on module TZ Portfolio+ Filter. So you need to add new module of this module type:

  • Give this module a position and make sure this position is properly displayed in your page layout
Create TZ Portfolio+ filter module
Config module TZ Portfolio+ filter

Add a new menu item

  • Go to Admin > Menus > Main Menu > New
  • Menu item type: TZ Portfolio Plus > Portfolio
  • Choose categories you want to display
  • Set Column Width to get an ideal number of columns

Check your page in front-end

​After having done those steps above, you should refresh and go to front page to see how your advanced search work.
