A few months back I wrote several search extensions for Virtuemart that use the Smart Search or com_finder extension. Last week, D Stockman from Oklahoma reached out to me to suggest creating another version of the Smart Search plugin that works for Virtuemart Manufacturers. There are now three plugins available!
- Smart Search - Virtuemart Products
- Smart Search - Virtuemart Categories
- Smart Search - Virtuemart Manufacturers
I have also modified the VM Products plugin so that it adds manufacturer taxonomy as well as category taxonomy. This means products can be filtered by their manufacturer!
