CM Tooltip (CMTG) - Search Glossary Terms


Searching the Glossary Items

Back to User Guide

Searching the glossary items is supported in several ways. This requires the Pro+ or eCommerce editions of the plugin.

Search Widget

You can add a search widget which is found in your widget section:

This will search the terms content and will return all related terms.

Glossary Index Search

You can include a search box in the Glossary Index Page.  You will find this setting under Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip → Settings → Glossary Index Page → Search, Categories & Tags.

Once added, you can let your users search for keywords that are part of the term's title, description, or both. This option let users find what they want faster.


Fast Live Filter Search

The Fast Live Filter option allows you to filter the results on the Glossary Index Page without reloading the page. 

When this option is enabled, after the user starts typing in the search box, the results will be limited to matching terms among the terms that are currently presented on the page.

To enable the feature you need to go to Admin Dashboard → CM Tooltip → Settings → Glossary Index Page, then scroll down to the "Search, Categories & Tags" section.

How Fast Search Filter Works

When the "te" is typed into Search Box only the terms containing these letters are displayed.

The list of terms displayed on the screen changes almost immediately, so it's very convenient way of searching through big glossaries.

Below: After adding just one more letter, the results have changed - the words "Excited" and Frustrated" were removed.

Of course using the Fast Live Filter doesn't stop the search functionality. After pressing "Search" the page will reload and the data will be sent to the server.

Important: Please remember that this works only on the data which was sent from the server. So it will work much better with the Client Side pagination than with the Server Side pagination.
As in the latter case the data has to be obtained from the server first. See 
this page.
