Product results issues

Thread began 11/17/2009 11:01 pm by latellogroup375248 | Last modified 11/25/2009 3:17 pm by Eric Mittman | 2950 views | 5 replies |

Product results issues

In the main menu at the top of the page under Products when in the drop down menu If you click on a product i.e. Tanks or T-Shirts, it goes to all products.

Isn't there a way to make this go to the individual product page and essentially not the "all products page"? All help is greatly appreciated.

I think that you are just missing a part of the menu code that should be filtering based on category. In the site go to the CSSMenuWriter folder, in here open the cssmw_home then open up the menu.php file.

In here on your line 79 should look like this:

php:
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search_x=true&CategoryID=<?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a></li>



If your file has this line any different then you should update it to be like this. This should make the category links filter based on the category.

Still doesn't work right.

Thanks Eric for your response. I have made the chages you suggested to the code. However the only code that came close was on line 77 not 79. When you hover over products at the top main drop down menu at the top of any page and the drop down menu shows the drop down list under products and you click on any product it still takes you to a page that shows all products. If you click on one of the products on the side list it takes you to the exact product you click on. I have pasted lines 71 to 80 of my code in the menu.php you refered me to. This is what it looks like after I made the changes you suggested. Please let me know if you see any errors in the code or if there is something else I can send you to help. Thank you.

<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Our Designs.php">Our Designs</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Search.php">Search</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search=0">Show All Products</a></li>
<?php if ($totalRows_menuwriter_productcategories > 0) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<?php do { ?>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search_x=true&CategoryID=<?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a></li>
<?php } while ($row_menuwriter_productcategories = mysql_fetch_assoc($menuwriter_productcategories)); ?>
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>
</ul>

I think you have almost got it all working, there is only one little thing that I can see that should be updated.

In your code that looks like this:

php:
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search_x=true&CategoryID=<? php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a></li>



You should update the Search_x to just be Search like this:

php:
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search=true&CategoryID=<? php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryID"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_productcategories["CategoryName"]; ?></a></li>



I did some testing on your live site to confirm that this is the way it should be. I must have been testing this from your search page the first time to get that value, sorry about that. Please update this and let us know if there is any other problems.
