Enable Search in Joomla! Website

Once Enterprise Architect models have been published as Articles (HTML pages) using the 'Publish as Joomla! Article' dialog in the local Joomla! installation, you can search for items within these Articles using Joomla!'s built-in Search facility.

Prerequisites

  • Install Joomla! locally and create a Joomla! repository
  • Set up an ODBC Link to the created Joomla! repository
  • Publish model content as a Joomla! Article

Enable the Joomla! Search Facility

Step

Action

1

Open the 'Joomla! Administrator Control Panel' using this URL:

     http://localhost/<joomla_folder_name>/administrator

where <joomla_folder_name> is the name of your Joomla! folder.

2

Select the 'Extensions | Modules' menu option.

3

Click on the New button and select the 'Search' option.

4

Type in a title (such as 'Search'), select a position in the 'Position' drop-down field (this determines where the 'Search' text box is displayed in the website), and click on the Save & Close button.

5

Access the Joomla! website by typing this URL in the 'Web Address' field:

     http://localhost/<joomla_folder_name>

where <joomla_folder_name> is the name of your Joomla! folder.

You will now see a 'Search' text box displayed.
