Miva Merchant 4 Module FAQs » Search Manager (BROK_SEARCH)


We would like to use your Additional Fields Manager to provide our customers with a set of select lists from which they can choose values to search for in each of the additional fields. For example we would have additional fields for:color size weight so they would select an item from three drop down select lists to choose a value to search for in the "color" field, for the "size" field, and the "weight" field. So they might search for something like:color="red"size="large"weight="4oz".

Yes, this is entirely doable. However, there isn't any way to "auto-populate" the drop down lists with the values taken from the Additional Fields Manager. You would need to "hard code" them into the template. So you would add something like:

<select name="SearchAdd_1">
<option value="">Any</option>
<option value="red">Red</opton>
<option value="blue">Blue</option>

to display a drop down list which searches in the Additional field 1 (it goes by the field's id as listed on the "Additional Fields Manager" tab).

You could add a drop down selection list for each field in the Additional Field Manager.

NOTE: this approach requires that you are using the "use template formatting" option.
