Forum OpenACS Development: Using Search and Categories pkgs

Hi there,

I wonder if if it would be possible to have search package working integrated with categories pkg supporting search as filters.

If not using those packages, what would be the best approach to implement those filters, categories of products from e-commerce package?

Best wishes

Check out

Search package is extensible with callbacks to allow adding additional joins/where clauses etc to the search query.

I wrote documentation for this but I am not sure where it is now. I thought it might be in the search package docs but I didn't see it.

Thanks for the link Dave. I'm going to use it the methods.
However, I need to build the model for venues first, define its object attributes, then use them as extra-args within search callbacks.

I'll create a separate package for that. Let me know if you find the documentation. I will be more than glad to write a case of use about it.

Best wishes,
