The GeoPlatform Community Search plugin is used to browse, search, and access the portfolio of GeoPlatform assets (Datasets, Services, Layers, Maps, Galleries, Communities) from within your community space. Community content curators can create custom lists of portfolio objects for display in pages and posts, filtering by object type, links to a community, by themes, and/or by keywords. Through a highly-customizable interface, the user is able to view, navigate and access these objects.

Shortcodes are used to place the Community Search interface within pages, posts, or any other location where text input is permitted. The created interface is contains a rich set of of search options, including search bar, sorting, paging, and scrolling controls.

The search interface can be further modified with a wide range of options under its settings page. Here, the user can set customization, global default behavior, and parameters to control filtering and how results are presented:

  • Source community – filter objects to those tagged as “used-by” the identified community
  • Object types – the Dataset, Service, Layer, Map, Gallery, Community portfolio assets
  • Results per page – number of object items listed
  • Interface title – title banner for the interface
  • Sorting criteria – ascending/descending sort order
  • Default keywords – keywords used to filter displayed results
  • Source themes – filter objects to those assigned to a specific theme
  • Visible paging controls and search bar

The Settings Page also provides information for setting individual interface options for this plugin. By modifying the shortcode, individual invocations of the search interface can override the global default set from the Settings Page, permitting unique interfaces for a wide variety of uses.
