Product Navigation Development Help

Recommended Posts

To start off, I will say I have a good understand of PHP and CSS. However, not quite good enough to work my way through what I want to do - especially if there is an easier way to do what I am trying. :) So when in doubt, just ask. Basically what I am trying to do is have a couple of different ways to browse products. I will be using the typical navigation on the left to display products. Ex. Table Linens, Bed Linens, Cushions, Canvas Art, etc. will be listed on the left, and then when clicked on it will display the different products. The part I don't know the easiest way to tackle is to sort by product line. Example: Click a picture navigation and have it bring up all products in Modern Designs, Antique Designs, Another Designs. I hope this makes sense? If it doesn't, I would be happy to clarify. Thanks!

Okay, I have done some thinking. Here is the basic heiarch of how I think I might be able to pull it off. Is there a way that I can display all products in a certain category? I was thinking if I organized my products like:

 

Modern Designs:(main category)

 

......Table Linens(sub category)

............(Products)

......Bed Linens(Sub Category)

............(Products)

......Cushions

............(Products)

......ETC.

............(Products)

 

Antique Designs:(Main Category)

 

......Table Linens(sub category)

............(Products)

......Bed Linens(Sub Category)

............(Products)

......Cushions

............(Products)

......ETC.

............(Products)

 

then I could somehow display all products within a main category (say antique designs) regardless of what sub category they fall in. Then for the other navigation, I could somehow populate a list of a specific sub category (say table linens) regardless of what main category they fall in. I hope I don't sound like a rambling buffoon. If this isn't making any sense, just let me know and I will give it up. lol.

 

One last effort to be as clear as possible. I want to click on a link "Antique Designs" and have it bring up all products within Antique Designs.

 

I want to click on a link "Table Linens" and have it show all of the "Table Linens" from all Main Categories.

 

I promise I am done now. ;)
