Site Configuration - Integrated Search Feature tab

The Jomres integrated search feature allows your users to search through Jomres businesses according to a set of functions. If you have already used the search features of Jomres in Joomla you will be familiar with these settings.

This feature allows us to offer search handling within Jomres for those users who don't want to use Joomla search modules, or for other CMS users who's CMS doesn't have it's own Jomres search modules.
Just remember that if you choose to search for something via a link (ie not a dropdown) then other search options will not be implemented, only the element that corresponds with the link that you clicked.
Note that by default the layout of this integrated search isn't very pretty. That's because the template file that performs the layout has to include all possible options, some of which are incompatible. To improve the layout and achieve the look you desire, you will need to edit search.html in the folder /jomres/templates/jomres/frontend
The select combo feature, as it's known, allows a user to select a country, then a region and finally a town/city to drill down to find properties in a city.
