Eric,

Got some updates for you

Originally Said By: nathan
  In the CSS Menu Writer "Edit contents" I placed the following in the link box: /product_Results.php?S_productsubcategoryID=[productsubcategoryID]&Search.x=54&Search.y=12&Search=Search

And IT WORKS!!!

Question...will those Search.x=54 and Search.y=12 gonna mess anything up? Is there a generic character to put in those or will it matter?  



Reference to above thread: On the Search.x=54 and Search.y=12, I changed the values to 1. Is that okay? It seems to work and I get the results I want.

  Alright, when I thought I conquered...but I am wrong.

I attempted to set up the dynamic menu with the second category...and it didn't like it. I am using the same subcategory setup, but with different subcategories that are listed with the second category but I am getting an error message. See the attached PDF file for that error.

I also attached a .zip with the menu.php that the error is referring to.

Am I not allowed to set up a dynamic menu with a 2nd category and pulling products out subcategories.

If this is possible, how do I filter out a certain range of productsubcategoryIDs (ie. 5-17)

This dynamic menu mess is holding up the progress of my client's website.

Thanks for your continued help and support. It is appreciated.  



Reference to the above quote: I may have solved my problem. Instead of using Menu Writer to create a dynamic menu for the second category, I went into menu.php and copied & pasted the code from the GPS category and placed it into the Avionics category. I also changed the "WHERE productsubcategoryID<=4" to "WHERE productsubcategoryID>=5 AND productsubcategoryID<=17". It all seems to work.

Please look at previous posts to see if I am on the right track. Everything is working on my testing server (localhost on my PC). There shouldn't be any problems transferring to hosting server at later time with the stuff I am doing here, right? (as long as I keep saving everything...lol).

Again, thanks for your assistance. I am sure I will have more questions later.
