A recent question in the support tickets is how to modify/manipulate the results of the Universal Ajax Live Search. From time to time we need to tell you, that the Live Search use the search plugins to show the result list. That means the results only depends on the search plugins, not the Live Search. This is important, because this extension can't be responsible for filtering the results. But let's step over on it, and check the new improvements!

I have to say that there was many request on this plugin. As you know the standard Joomla! content search plugin is responsible to show articles. Many of the customers would like to use a filter in the results, don't want to show some articles, or an entire category. Now it is possible with this plugin, just install it on Joomla 2.5 or higher and enjoy the fantastic category selector, or write the ids of the articles separated by commas. One new feature that you can select whether exclude or include categories and articles. Note that in case of include the search will only shows result from the included categories/articles.
