search results not appearing in lower categories
« on: August 16, 2012, 01:45:34 am »
Hi,

Posting under this section instead of bugs hoping it's a simple box I haven't checked :-\

I'm using 2.0.8e installed with aio, Joomla 2.5.6 and PHP 5.2.17.
Using VM as a catalog, caching is off and doesn't seem to be affected by stock level.

Searches work fine when I am at the top of the menu, at any page in the site.

As soon as I go into any category or sub-category view in VM the search shows no results whether there are items that should show up in the search or not.

I'm not sure if it's because I'm missing an aio search module or I'm using the wrong one.
Seems to be based on whether I'm at a category page or not.

VM - Search, Virtuemart Product is enabled in plugins
Module VirtueMart Search Product (VM-search in shop) is enabled in modules

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Garyph

Hi,
I am having the same problem with VM 2.0.10 an Joomla 2.5.6. I unpublished all the not-standard modules and used the standard template (Beez20) but than did not solve the problem. Anyone an idea how to fix this?

I noticed that the seach does work but only shows results from within the subcategory. What I want (and expected) was results form all categories.
The VM search box is on all my pages and I want search results from all categories no matter where on my site I start this search. Is there a setting to achieve this?

Since I didn't have this problem a while ago I suspected the VM update to be the culprit. And rightly so.

My current VM version is 2.0.10.

To solve the problem I replaced administrator/components/com_virtuemart/models/product.php with a previous version (@version $Id: product.php 5908 2012-04-16 12:21:58Z Milbo $) and all works fine again.
