Search Filter

HWDMediaShare uses the default search filtering options from Joomla! Filter by a keyword and the media will display based on your search criteria.

Drop-down Filter

Use the select drop-downs to further filter the media you're looking for. Select the media by type, meta information, or display the number of items you wish to see.

The User Channels page uses the standard blog layout css/output used in Joomla's com_content component. This is to ensure that the component will remain consistent with any template you install that uses the standard Joomla! css output styles. This is called the Details layout. You alternatively have the List layout here as well.
