Hi,

This is my first foray into Joomla so be kind. I have created a component which displays a form which is used to search a data source. What I also have is a page which is used to display teh results. How do make this page (results) available in the system without creating a menu item?

Thanks in advance!

Tim

Tim,

With Joomla you can access your components default view by going to
"/index.php?option=com_mycomponent"

You can access a different view by going to
"/index.php?option=com_mycomponent&view=display_results"

I have always used what I call "faux menus" to do what you are talking about. Here is how I do it:
  • Set up a new menu called "faux data" or something of this nature. I always use the word faux so I know it's not a real menu.
  • Add a menu item to the menu that matches what you are trying to do (article, script, whatever you are using).
  • The menu items ARE PUBLISHED, but you will not create a module to place the menu anywhere on the site.
  • If you have your SEO URLs turned on in your Global Settings, you can now use the SEO friendly version of the URL.

This is the only way I know to do this, but it has always worked...let me know if you have questions.

Thanks,
Ryan
