Hi Tim,
i am searching for a way to connect the global search to the search field within the auction list view.
Since the only real content on my website are the auctions themselves, the global search does not find anything in the moment (i guess it is not able to index the auction entries?).

OK solution: How can i make the global search find the auction items and search for keywords in them
Great solution: How can i set up the global search so that if someone searches for a keyword he will be forwarded to the auction list page and the keyword is been transferred to the "filter" search box on the top left corner and the search is being executed.

I know this works with variables and ?listsearch... tags behind url, but i dont know how to activate the search field via URL.

Thanks for any advice,

Hi Ramin,
I think what you need is one of the search plugins.

If you are using smart search, use the com_finder plugin. If you are using the older com_search, use the other one. Note that if you are using smart search you will need to trigger the index after you have enabled the plugin.
