Advanced search - no result in "Search All Categories"
« on: June 10, 2012, 22:32:25 pm »

in VM advanced search, the search gives no results when searching in all categories (when not selecting any category).

Also, when selecting in the search a category which contains sub categories, and all the products have been added to the subcategory but not to the main category, no result shows up.

Example of the latter situation: I have a category "record labels", which contains a series of subcategories (each label = a category). In each subcategory you find the records, publish under this record label. No record has the category "label", but all have the sub category "label/name of recordlabel".
When in Advanced Search you select "recordlabels" as category, no results shop up.

How can I change Advanced Search that it searches automatically the subcategories of a selected main category?

Thanks for your help!
