[SOLVED] Advanced Search
I created a How To for anyone interested in seeing how it is done.
For a new project, I have the need to create an advanced search function.
-After reviewing the forum, I have been succesful in getting the following to work (with some modification): Filter article lists using drop-down select menus
The above works great for a combination where the fields are pull down selections, but I need to offer a multi select field. With the multi select field, I need to be able to only include articles that have these items also selected. I think either a Bloke plug in (don’t they always come in handy) or esq_glzcfvallist may be necessary, but not completely sure and could use a nudge in the right direction. If it helps understand the site better:
-Think of a car site.
I have it working fine if the end user selects type of car (Honda) and/or color (Red).
Now need them to select multiple options (power steering etc.) and have that return the appropriate results including the above filtering. The multiple options are in a single custom multi check field.- As always, any and all guidance is greatly appreciated.
