Need Help In Searching Across Two Fields

Recommended Posts

We need to set up two data fields that have the ability to be searched 'independently' or 'in tandem'.

 

One field is "Product Type" and the other "Product Theme". In the osCommerce template we will pre-define the data that will be available for entering using drop down boxes.

 

Upon entering a new product item the data input will include selecting which "Product Type" and "Product Theme" for each item.

 

On the home page we then want the customers to be able to do a search in either field, or combining both fields. For instance, customers could just chose to search for items by "toys" (product), or "star wars" (theme), or "toys" (product) + "star wars" (theme).

 

We want our customers to be able to search by either, or both fields.

 

This is to 'augment' the General search feature and the Advanced search feature on our site. We have found that many customers need quick, more refined search techniques.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, whether in the form of custom scripting or using a module.

 

Thanks, Bruce Senator
