Searching by complex conditions, please help

Friday 08 October 2010 10:01:40 pm - 3 replies

Hello,

 

I am making a website where users can insert several categorized products in different country-locations, some of the products are available and some not (they use two different classes)

 

I need to develop a search template where users can

  1. Select a single checkbox that once checked means “Available products” OR “Not available products” (this defines which class to search for)
  2. several checkboxes (they define which category of products the user is interested in)
  3. and several checkboxes (they define which countru-locations the user is interested in)

There are two classes of products defined, let’s call them

  • Available
  • Not Available

The fetch should be able to

  1. Know which type of product to fetch (available or not)
  2. Then make the fetch only for those whose category attribute XX (object relation) contains the selected ones in the category checkboxes AND only those whose locations attribute YY (object relation) contains the selected ones in the location checkboxes.

I have been studying the advancedsearch.tpl but I am short of information on how to involve checkboxes in a more complex situation.

 

My goal is to have something similar to http://cu.acciontrabajo.com/ displaying a form which a has “selecting Sector”, “selecting Place” and then shows all items that complies the selection with the difference that I also have to know which of the two classes I have to search for…

 

This is kind of confusing for me to explain in English, Hope someone understood…

 

Any hints, maybe someone has done such a search,

 

thanks

I need to stick for other reasons to the conventional search and not using ezfind

Hi Jorge,

It could help to see your content tree / content classes and datatypes you use.

Thanks

My content tree is simple…

There is a “folder” where all products are located, the “Available” and “No Available” ones, the folder´s name is “Poducts”.

“Available Class product” has the following attributes: (This description will only have the important attributes used for the search, I will try to translate because the site is in spanish)

---------------------------------------------------------

Available class ( class ID "available" )

Form code upt to now:

<code>

<form action="/lapincha/index.php/esl/content/advancedsearch" method="get">

<li><input type=checkbox value="Available"> Pinar del Río</li>

<li><input type=checkbox value="Not Available">Ciudad de La Habana</li>

<h2>1. Seleccione Tipologia<font size=1><label>

</ul>

</div>

<div class=clear></div>

<h2><div style="float:left">2. Seleccione lugar</div><div style="float:left"><font size=1><label>

<li><input type=checkbox value="Mayabeque"><a href="/lapincha/index.php/esl/Busca/Provincia-a-trabajar/Mayabeque">Mayabeque</a></li>

<li>

</ul>

</div>

<div class=clear></div>

<div class="clear"></div><!--end of search box links -->

<div class="clear"></div>

</div>

<input class="button" name="SearchButton" value="Buscar" />

</form>

</code>

The procedure I need:

User selects Available products or Not Available (Class ID "available" / "notavailable"blunk.gif Emoticon

Folder to search for nodeID 340

Then selects type of product

 

  • Office

 

  • Building

 

  • Publicity

 

Then the location

 

  • Pinar del Río

 

  • Ciudad de La Habana

 

  • Mayabeque

 

And then clicks the search button

So the search should search at the FOLDER for the RIGHT objects depending of the CLASS value upon selection, that matches the selection values of “type of products” (could be one or several or all) with its corresponding type of product object relation attribute of the class (and see if at least one of the selection matches one of the selections of the object) and the same goes with location… kind of hard to explain…. Anyway the form just could help understand the issue.

thanks again!

Ok, there a lot of think to say / explain about your issue.

Your content classes :

Maybe, you should use the same classe for "available" and "non available" products (using a specific attribute to distinct your products type, like a checkbox, object relation, option...). Maybe i miss a project parameter ?

Make choice beetween eZ Find or a classic eZ Fetching :

Why do you need eZ Find ? (do you need relevancy ? full text search engine ?). Correct me if i'm wrong, but you try to :

  • Browse your categories, countries, and display them inside a select box (filter selection)
  • Browse your products depending of these filters, and no more ?

Waiting to your answer, before explain more happy.gif Emoticon
