Changing "Other Products" in Manufacturer Infobox


Recommended Posts

my store is selling CDs and when you click on a CD, the Manufacturer's Info box (renamed Artist Info in this case) gives you a hyperlink to other products by the same artist...


the problem is some of the CDs have multiple artists on them... so when you click on "Other Products", it doesn't show all the CDs that the artist has performed on, just the ones to which they are assigned as the artist (manufacturer)...


i'm reluctant to use an addon that would allow multiple manufacturers, but one solution I have thought of is to use the advanced search facility....


the site uses the Search Enhancement contribution - http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1496


what I would like to do is replace the "Other Products" list with the advanced search form...


I say form, but it doesn't need to be a visible form - it can all be hidden, with only a submit (or image) button visible...


but what I can't figure out is how to embed the specific manufacturer_id as a search string, so that the customer only has to press the button, and an advanced search will take place for the manufacturer...


has anyone done this or can they help with what the code should be...
