RSFinder! Plugin Custom Expressions

Beside the 19 default Core Expressions available in RSFinder!, you can alway create your own expressions. To do this, simply by click on the 'Configure' button and a modal will be displayed. You can now add the epxression name within the 'Expression' field and the URL in the URL Part field (without the domain name, only from index.php?option=com_installer&view=update, for example).

You can also edit your custom expression at a later time, or simply delete them. A search functionality is also provided for an easier navigation between expressions.


Let's say for example, that you want to create a new expression for easily access the Article Field creation page:

  1. Go to Content > Fields > click on the 'New' button.
  2. Copy the URL part after your domain name, for example: index.php?option=com_fields&view=field&layout=edit&context=com_content.article
  3. Go to System > Plugin > System - RSFinder! > Expression > Configure > a new modal will be opened
  4. In the 'Expression' field, add your desired name, for example: new article field
  5. In the 'URL Part' add the above copied URL
  6. Click on the 'Add' button, afterwards close the Expressions modal and save the Plugin configuration.


After configuring your desired new expressions:

  1. Press the 'Predefined Keys' to open the RSFinder! search box;
  2. Type in the name of the new expression.
