Search Products and Dispaly based on CategoryID

Search Products and Dispaly based on CategoryID

Hi,
Looking for some help with a little problem with PowerStore 2.

I am trying to populate certain pages with certain products, each page displays only products relating to that pages contents.

What I have been able to do is populate the pages with products however all of the products in the database are displayed and I need to limit what products are displayed based on the products category or categoryID (which ever is easiest and most effective).

Currently I am using code from the Products_Results.php to search the DB and populate the page as needed. But have not been able to get the results to be limited to CategoryID or ProductsCategoryID.


Any suggestions or help is much appriciated!

Code provided below is prior to html tag, code used to populate pages is same as code in Products_Results.php with minor CSS adjustments:


<?php require_once('WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php');?>
<?php require_once('Connections/localhost.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php"); ?>

<?php
//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/WA_Store_Cart_PHP.php");
?>
<?php
$WA_Store_Cart->GetContent();
?>
<?php
//WA Database Search Include
require_once("WADbSearch/HelperPHP.php");
?>
<?php

if ((((isset($_GET["Search"]))?$_GET["Search"]:"") != "")) {
$WADbSearch1 = new FilterDef;
$WADbSearch1->initializeQueryBuilder("MYSQL","1");
//keyword array declarations
$KeyArr1 = array("ProductSKU", "CategoryName", "ProductName", "ProductCartDesc", "ProductShortDesc", "ProductLongDesc");

//comparison list additions
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr1,"".((isset($_GET["S_ProductName"]))?$_GET["S_ProductName"]:"") ."","AND","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);
$WADbSearch1->addComparison("ProductCategoryID","".((isset($_GET["CategoryID"]))?$_GET["CategoryID"]:"") ."","AND","=",1);

surprisingly simple

To search the db based on Category ID simply add the following to the end of the url of the page to that will display the results of the search.

?CategoryID=2&Search=1

example: http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/displayresults.php?CategoryID=2&Search=1

The CategoryID in this instance is 2.
This solved my problem and I was able to complete the project. Basically when a user clicks the link it takes them to a page that displays only products with CategoryID of 2. I hope it helps, not sure if this is the best way to accomplish the job.
