I am using a hardly modified version of barry. I have left the code
for the leftsite almost exactly the same. To my untrained eye, the
links to my various categories is getting built with "[box-exec
bar_link]area[/box-exec]" (where "box" is the prefix given in the
Again with my limited understanding, the actual link built is table
driven from the area table. I think the table to be searched is in
the 'tab' field and the selection criteria is set in the 'selector'
field. What I would like to do is put additional selection criteria
in that field. Specifically, I would like something like this:
I've tried this, and it doesn't work. It seems like my options are
two: filter the matches out in the results page using and [if [scratch
my_addl_category] eq [item-field addl_category]] tag; or to not use
PREFIX-exec, loose the "dynamic" nature of table driven stuff and
build my own links with a search profile and the [page] tag.
What is the "Minivend Way" to handle this?
