List of all properties in one region from menu

Recommended Posts

Guest Ann

Hi Everyone,

 

Our rental properties are in different regions/subregions

I used the categories for the regions (as all our properties are for rent).

 

I would like to use a menu item to call a list of all properties in one region or subregion.

How can I achieve this without resorting to the seach module?

 

Thanks in advance!

I did this with /search/type/1

1 gives a list of all categories that you could style with CSS

you can replace 1 with the category ID to show a specific category.

Thank you very much for your reply, really appreciated :)

 

I tried to find the "Type" option in all search modules but couldn't find it.

 

What menu item type should I use? I tried them all to no avail... :(

 

Thanks again in anticipation.

Cheers

you use your existing search page. so say thats

mydomain.com/search

and that shows the search box with the latest listings

add type so its

mydomain.com/search/type/1

that will show ROOT in the search box and gve you a list of all the categories

you can put the number of the category on the end to show a list of just one category

like mydomain.com/search/type/2

to make a menu of it copy that url create a joomla external link menu item and use mydomain.com/search/type/2

you now have a menu item that when clicked will show the chosen category

I have three categories. I made a side menu

For Sale

To Let

Holiday Rental

and used links like the above
