How to new products fields + Advance search?


hetul

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

How do I add new products fields like (keywords) so that I can define a particular product with a few keywords (one or more than one, seperated by a comma) of my liking.

 

Now, once the user goes to Advance Search. He shoud see a DROP DOWN box just like the Manufacturer. From where he can select any of the keyword.

 

This will show him the list of all the product that contain that keyword.

 

I know this can be achived by putting those keywords in the description. But then I have to depend on the user the use those keywords (which can be where rare)

 

These keywords (or attridutes) would be like

 

- Wooden

- Plastic

- Steel

 

And so on..

 

is there a way to achive this?

 

Thanks

IF I understand what you want, here is an outline of what you need to do:

 

 

Create 2 new tables to hold keywords & relate them to products.

 

In the admin section, add input items for the new fields so you can enter keywords for a product.

 

In the advanced_search.php page, add code to generate a pulldown menu of your keywords.

 

In the advanced search code, add searches to use the entered keywords in searches.

 

 

This is a non-trivial programming project but it can certainly be done.

yes bob, this is what i wanted done.

 

I realise, when dealing with over 2000 products. This can help user to narrow down his search for same kind of products from different brands.
