[ic] taking advantage of the addl_category in 'barry'
05 Sep 2000 12:46:22 -0400
As some of you may have noticed, I'm pretty new to
minivend/interchange. I've managed to get a site working for the most
part. The only thing I lack is a filer for scanning products. I have
a handfull of categories that work fine for displaying all the
products in that category. I also have an 'addl_category' that I
would like to take advantage of. Products in all the addl_categories
are in all the categories. The layout is more matrix than tree-like.
What I would like is a form on the main page (really in the logobar)
for selecting the addl_category. This selection should remain
throughout the user's session or until they select a new
addl_category. Further, this addl_category should be used as an
additional search filter when scanning the products by category.
I have read the documentation - several times. It seems like each
five times I read it, something becomes more clear. If someone could
point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I'm just not
sure what the "standard" minivend/interchange way of doing this is.
