Search Configuration


NS Recipes's Search engine can have many different parameters.

NS Recipe Search - Introduction

NS Recipe comes with easy-to-setup, powerful search features. Your users can search recipes from the search module, a search menu item page or from Joomla native search (using search plugin). You are going to learn how to configure all of these search methods.

NS Recipe Search Options

In NS Recipe Component options, you can set parameters that have a direct impact on how the search is performed.
Components > NS Recipe > Options > Search tab

As shown below, searches can be performed on the recipe title AND/OR recipe preparation field AND/OR recipe description field AND/OR recipe tags AND/OR recipe ingredients.

YooRecipe Search Options

You can also decide which search fields should be displayed and required using the following parameters:
Category criterion, Containing ingredients criterion, Exclude ingredient criterion, Season Criterion, Search by Prep time, Search by Cook time, Search by Author, Search by Rating, Search by Cost, Search word mandatory, Category mandatory, Ingredients mandatory

NS Recipe Search Module Options

These settings apply to NS Recipe modules ONLY (mod_NS_Recipe_search). Basic Options tab enables you to decide which fields should be displayed in search form.

Labels used in search module can be over-ridden from module options.

Tip: Multi-language website owners should not use this feature, and should prefer override labels, as explained in Customize NS Recipe labels article.
