First of all: I'm quite happy with JL Content Filter. But... customers keep asking for new features and I always look for ways to accomplish them. So here are a few questions:
1. Would it be possible to set a fixed selection for a specific custom field? Like this: if I have a blog page for a specific category, I would like to set up the module to show only those articles within this category that have value x in custom field y. We would like to combine this preset selection with further, manual selections in the module by the end user.
2. Our data structure is such that we want our blog view to show articles from more than one category, all categories being child elements of the same parent category. We would like to use JL Content Filter for filtering on custom fields and we would like to combine this filtering with filtering on the child category. There are ways to do this but it would be most convenient for the end user if this could be done using the same interface / the same module. If I had know beforehand that this question would come up, I might have created a different content structure; unfortunately I cannot change it anymore now.
3. Just a question for easier management: in the “Show in category” parameter of the module I can select one or more categories in which the module should be active. Would it also be possible to select the parent category and automatically include all child categories?
Just a little bump. Would it be possible to help me with my first question: setting a fixed selection for one custom field and being able to combine this with the other selections? Maybe using an override?
Still, if someone would have suggestions for #2 I would appreciate that.
And maybe #3 could be a nice new feature for the backend interface of the JL Content Filter module?
