Filter custom fields
« on: October 31, 2011, 08:16:06 am »
Custom fields are great. But if we can't use them to filter products than the strength of the custom fields is gone.
Is there a way to filter the custom fields?

For example:
Products with custom field: "use"

options: home, work,school

other custom field: "computer"
options: laptop, tablet, desktop

Now I would like to have a module that I can filter the products for Work and Tablet. How can this be done?
SOmething like the magento functionality like this http://www.bagageonline.nl/alle-koffers/koffers-hard.html

Hi balai, just sent you a PM regarding testing your new filter module, which sounds like a very nice addition to the VM feature list.

You can try the "characteristic" plug-in. It's working but not have full features.
You have 2 fields to add product characteristics and inside the plug-in you have a trigger for search, adding the first field of plug-in and usable as a normal search.
It's only a sort of demo code for developper but if you now a little joomla and php you can add more fields or why not dropdown list or javascripts to enhance it and get it back to the community ;)
