Display Contents w/ View, Dropdown to Filter


This Discussion is public


I have a view that displays data on a page.  I then added a formidable search bar on that same page to search the view.  I have two questions, is it possible to search using a drop-down box to search the contents of the view, for instance, if I have names prepopulated in the dropdown box, and I want to see the entries by that selected name only.

Second questions is, is there a way to force exact searches with the search bar, like in google putting "search content"?

You can do this, but you should probably take a look at jQuery Datatables as a resource to provide this functionality in a view. https://datatables.net/
