Search artcle in Virtuemart article list in backend

I am using Virtuemart 2.0.22a

How can I, in the VM administrator, search an article using a part of the article description or an article id?
In this version of VM I can only filter on category and then sort the articles on article name or article id.

Thanks

Standard VM search module perhaps? With the help of standard VM search plugin of course.

The module "VirtueMart search article"and plugin "plg_search_virtuemart"are installed and enabled.
Searching in teh frontend works fine.
In spite of that in the backend (administrator) there is no search field that can be used to search on article number.

You could use frontend search for finding part of product description.

And in the BE you could sort products by ID.

I told my client to do so, but they prefer the article name or (id) search field that used to be in the former versions.

Product name and sku are available for BE search. Is your sku equal to id?

The sku is the unique article code

If I use the unique article code in the frontend, for instance 13-09-06 on domain insulindedenhaag.nl, the article is found.
In the backend I cannot search using this code.
See attachement , no field available to search on this code (Only date combinations, category and manufacturer are there)

I see searched product on the first line. Is it not good?

That is a coincidence.

It is not possible to search on article id 13-09-06 because the search field seems to meant for dates searches

Maxim Pishnyak

We have some search fields there. About what specific one are you talking?

I can :

Filter on category
Filter on manufacturer
Search article on date and some extra filtering for specific ranges of dates

If you look at the attachment I sent you can se these in the header

Further I can sort on columns:
Article name
Subarticle from
Article unique code
Price
Manufcturers
Id

Nope. Search field is for product id(sku) too. For dates as you mentioned

I found out that file:..... administrator/components/com_virtuemart/models/product.php of version VM 2.0.22c doesn't work the way it should.
So I replaced the file by ....administrator/components/com_virtuemart/models/product.php of version VM 2.0.22b.

Now everything works fine.

I hope the developers will take a look at it

I hope VM users will take a look at the latest 2.0.22d or even 2.0.22e versions (Dev Portal at the top of current page).
