Dynamic Drop Downs navigation

Okay, so I created the dynamic drop down using the tutorial and it works well with one exception. When I click on a category it places all the products on the results page. Not just the ones for that category.

Help :)

Hi Jason,

The website only lives on my local sever right now (while I'm developing it). Not sure if it will help but I will attach the files and images for the resulting webpages.

The first image show the first level drop down. When these are clicked the results page show all products from of the seven categories instead of just the category selected.

1) the results page is set to filter by category

edit the database search behavior on the results page to add a Categoty filter using the CategoryID url variable.

2) the databASe search behavior on the results page is set to trigger on a URL variable named search

your category links:
<a href="../../products_results.php?CategoryID=<?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a>

will need to contain the search URL variable:
<a href="../../products_results.php?CategoryID=<?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>&Search=Search"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a>

Where is the code that I need to change? I looked on the results page but can't seem to find it.

the code for the links is in the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.php


you dont need to edit code on the results page, you need to edit the Data Assist Search server behavior.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the info but the results are the same. No matter what category I click on in returns the same results (it list all the products regardless of category)
