help, Search keywords to use as subject field in email message


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I really hope someone can help me. I don't have any php background. I have managed to install oscommerce and everything, but I'm battling with the following.

 

When a client types in keywords and clicks the search button, it takes them to the advanced_search_result.php, the problem is if there isn't any match then it says the following - There is no product that matches the search criteria -

 

I have managed to edit that an changed it to

 

There is no product that matches the search criteria.

 

If the book(s) is not listed here, it does not necessarily mean we do not have it or cannot find it for you. Simply send a mail to [email protected] and we will try our best to assist you on finding the book(s).

 

which works fine, but I would like the email to include the "search criteria" the client typed in the search field.

 

so say for instance, the client searched for cars

 

then when they click on my email address it must say "cars" in the subject line.

 

If anyone can help me with this, I'll really appreciate it.

 

Have a nice day.

Fairly easy, plus I had a sparwe moment so I`ve written the code for you!!

 

the best option is to use an addition to the contact form.

 

In includes/modules/product_listing.php

find(149):

 

 

$list_box_contents[0] = array('params' => 'class="productListing-odd"');
$list_box_contents[0][] = array('params' => 'class="productListing-data"',
							   'text' => TEXT_NO_PRODUCTS);

new productListingBox($list_box_contents);

 

add after:

 

if (basename($PHP_SELF) == FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT) {
 echo '<tr><td align="center">' .  tep_draw_form(contact,tep_href_link(FILENAME_CONTACT_US,'subject=' . $_GET['keywords']));?><input type="submit" value="<?php echo 'Contact us about ' . $_GET['keywords'];?>" /></form></td>
 </tr><?php  }

 

then in contact_us.php

 

find:

 

	$enquiry = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['enquiry']);

 

add after:

 

 

	$subject = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['subject']);

 

find:

 

tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS, EMAIL_SUBJECT, $enquiry, $name, $email_address);

 

replace with:

 

tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS, $subject, $enquiry, $name, $email_address);

 

find:

 

			  <tr>
			<td class="main"><?php echo ENTRY_EMAIL; ?></td>
		  </tr>
		  <tr>
			<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('email'); ?></td>
		  </tr>

 

add after:

 

	   <tr>
			<td class="main"><?php echo 'Subject' ?></td>
		  </tr>
		  <tr>
			<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('subject',$_GET['subject']); ?></td>
		  </tr>

 

Hope that sort it for you :)
