5.10. Search Profiles
An unlimited number of search profiles can be predefined that reside in a file or files. To use this, make up a series of lines like:
mv_search_field=artist mv_search_field=category mv_orsearch=yes
These correspond to the Interchange search variables that can be set on a form. Set it right on the page that contains the search.
[set artist_profile] mv_search_field=artist mv_search_field=category mv_orsearch=yes [/set]
This is the same:
[set artist_profile] sf=artist sf=category os=yes [/set]
Then, in the search form, set a variable with the name of the profile:
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_profile VALUE=artist_profile>
In a one-click search, use the mp modifier:
[page scan se=Leonardo/mp=artist_profile]A left-handed artist</a>
They can also be placed in a file. Define the file name in the SearchProfile directive. The catalog must be reconfigured for Interchange to read it. The profile is named by placing a name following a __NAME__ pragma:
The __NAME__ must begin the line, and be followed by whitespace and the name.
The special variable mv_last stops interpretation of search variables. The following variables are always interpreted:
Other than that, if mv_last is set in a search profile, and there are other variables on the search form, they will not be interpreted.
To place multiple search profiles in the same file, separate them with __END__, which must be on a line by itself.
