Show filters when "Hide records on first load" is on

User mariardr 2018-02-14 14:19:18

Hi! I'd like to build a list of verified students of a school, so that the school partners will be able to check a student's certificate. I want to list some info like the students' name, surname, id, certificate id, certificate date, passport etc (in a way similar to the Countries list in your demo).

I am trying to create a list where the visitors follow these steps:

1. Enter a page where the list entries are NOT visible and enter their search criteria (name, passport)

2. Apply filters

3. View ONLY the listings that meet their search criteria

I have set "Hide records on first load?" to "Yes" but then the filters don't appear. Am I missing a configuration setting?
I would also like to hide the "Show All" button.

Thank you!

Hi,
for that purpouse you need to enable the module 'list manager filter' (it will include the filter configuration of your fields). Just publish it at the same page you have your list, and you will see the filter toolbar whilst the data remains hidden.
Regarding show all button, you can use css to hide it, adding this style to any css present at your page should do the work:

button {
display: none !important;
}

Hope this helps, regards

I have succesfully hidden the Show All button with css and also added css to hide the Export all and Email buttons. I am posting the css I used, in case anyone else finds it useful:

button, li, li, button, input, button, input {
display: none !important;}

Hi,
thank you very much for sharing. Just for clarification, in order to hide/show export all/email or pdf buttons you have default options include at the menu/module configuration->List manager view options. If for any reason, (like conflicting styles with template) these switches doesn't hide as configured, the classes provided will do the work overriding these styles.

Thanks again for your feedback

Regards
