Hi,

Well, the URL generation uses the "namekey" of the filters.
So in your PHPMyAdmin, you can edit the entries in the table "hikashop_filter" to change the namekeys to what you want.
For the rest of the parameters in the URL, you won't be able to easily change it.

1. how can i achieve filter urls similar to these site?

www.lamudi.co.id

as you change the filters the url changes to something similar to the filters.


2. how can i change search_filter to search_keyword or just keyword?

3. how can i add tags to the search filters?

Hi,

1. Your filters in the URL are plenty readable.

site.net/properties-for-sale?limitstart=...m_7=filter_Bedroom_7

As I said, the texts filter_DesignorType_1 filter_Price_2 filter_Sort_3 filter_Type_4 filter_Bathroom_6 filter_Bathroom_6 filter_Bedroom_7 are the namekeys of your filters and you can change these in phpmyadmin to whatever you want.
What's left in your URL is :
- "limitstart" which can't be changed... it's for the pagination system.
- the "65" is the value of the filter. It can be changed to text if that filter filter_Type_4 is based on a custom product field. If it's based on a characteristic or categories, it can't be changed.
There is nothing else in the URL.

2. I don't understand your question. These texts are not in the URL you provided, so I don't understand what you want to change where.

3. Are you talking about the "tags" option you can find when you edit products ? These integrate with Joomla's tag system and it can't be easily integrated to the filter system. In that case, instead of using tags, I would recommend using a custom product field and then you could have a filter on that custom field.
