Drop-Down menu for search

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Is it possible to add a dropdown menu ie.

The first box lists the manufactures, in my case, Citro?n Ford, Rover etc...

Then the second search box lists all the relevant models, such as

'Cortina' 'Capri' 'Escort' 'Transit ' (These won't mean anything to people not in the UK! :P )

 

then, say 'Cortina' is selected when the search button is pressed, the site will search for "FORD"+"CORTINA" or is this impossible?

 

 

 

Many thanks,

 

Andy

Hi, I've asked a programmer to do that for me, its exactly what i need.

I think you need to change code on the /includes/boxes/search.php page.

if anyone can help, will be much appreciated

I did that but its heavily involved. I had to add 8 extra drop down menus. Added new tables and new fields in the database so it will be product specific. Its not something I could just simply explain to do sorry. Just follow along the manufacture code and add your own with that example? Sorry I cant be more help.

there are 2 contributions and the combination of both will help u to add drop down menu for searching manufacturers in the search info box. search for the below contributions:

 

 

*adding new product fields v 2

*advanced search box v 1.3

 

i have used them and a bit of my own coding to search the categories as well as some new fields of product table. the category search is not working perfectly rite now. i hope to correct it in the next week.

 

if u can't find the contributions, let me know. rite now i'm really busy.

 

cheers,

Irfan
