recordset issue

recordset issue

Hi Jason

I was just wondering what I have done wrong on this page.

Every time I add a new recordset it stops the content from the WADAproducts recordset being rendered...

This is how it looks right now.
http://simplyfluff.com/product2.php?id=14

This is how it looks if I remove the last recordset 'YouMightLike':
http://simplyfluff.com/product.php?id=14

I have attached the products2.php page

Cheers

Jamie

the problem is your link:
http://simplyfluff.com/product2.php?id=14

This is passing the product ID using a url variable named "id". the WADAproducts recordset is expecting the URL variable to be named "ProductID" though.

use this link instead:
http://simplyfluff.com/product2.php?ProductID=14

ah ha ... that makes sense and is also why something else was screwing up (mod_rewrite) so thats killing 2 birds with one stone! many thanks

on the same page, as you can see there are 5 main product categories... how would I filter the 'you may like' section so that it shows the 4 product categories that the featured product above them is not in?

in the product_contents table, you would need to store the category. then add a where cluase to filter the category NOT Equal to the one from the WADAProducts recordset

WHERE productCategory != paramCat

create a new variable as:
name: paramCat
type: text
default value: -1
Runtime value: $row_WADAproducts['ProductLive']

thanks a million Jason... last question for today (I promise!)

in the backend that drives the product page, I have a product_results.php page which allows the user to reorder the items by category (you pointed me in the right ddirection for creating the sort facility). The problem is that it also has an update order function on the page and I want to hide that but only if the user has applied a filter... when they are viewing the complete product list I wnt them to be able to re-roder items

have attached the page

cheers

when they use the search, it is stored in a session:

$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_product_results"]


use an if statement around the update order button so it only shows if the session is not set:

<?php if(isset($_SESSION["WADbSearch1_product_results"])) { ?>
<update order button>
<?php } ?>

Hey Jason

Have done that and wrapped the update order button:

<?php if(isset($_SESSION["WADbSearch1_product_results"])) { ?>
<input type="submit" value="Update Order" name="UpdateOrder" class="btn">
<?php } ?>



but the button is showing still in both the filtered results and the non filtered results....

Have worked this one out - It was working just in the opposite so changed isset to !isset and now it works.

It has thrown up a new problem now... the reset button no adds the update button back in and to get to the fill unfilterd list of products you have to hit reset twice.... how do I get the reset to go straight to the unfiltered list of products please?
