Powerful search

The SobiPro Search is one of the features that make SobiPro a very powerful tool for site visitors. Almost each field can be configured to show up in the search form.

One for all

With SobiPro you can create as many directories and any other content types on your site as you need with only one single SobiPro component installation.


Bring your directory with you on any device. Due to Bootstrap powered templates, you can show your content on any device out of the box


Update SobiPro and its applications to the most recent version before reporting a problem!

We are continously improving SobiPro and its applications, fixing bugs and making working with them more easy. Still we see that you report problems for old versions of SobiPro or its applications. Mostly they are already fixed. If you are using an older version of SobiPro, please check the changelog list if your problem is solved in the meantime. It is also worth to read all the fixed issues in our tracker. If you think that this is too much work, simply update SobiPro to the most recent version!

Hi there!

Since I also ran into the issue of a broken SobiPro after upgrading to Joomla! 3.9.3 from 3.9.2 I updated SobiPro to the current version 1.4.10 which fixed the broken SobiPro-issue. All functions appear to work fine except the "Alpha Listing" which can be switched on and off within the template configuration. The Alpha-slection top bar is visible but upon selecting any letter by clicking the link (which leads to for the letter "a") the following error message is thrown:

[Got error 'repetition-operator operand invalid' from regexp]

To me, this seems like an error message thrown by MySQL - I currently can not figure out what kind of regex the system does not like. The usual search-function is working fine.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Hi there!

    Same problem here - disabling the alpha menu lets SobiPro work.
