|Miva Merchant standard search
considers all entered criteria as "and". So when you search for this and that you will only get products that have all
For common search criteria that
you think your customers may be looking for, or interested in, you can create a direct
link from one of the main landing pages directly to those search results. This way,
you customers will click on that link and find a list of products that you want them to
take a look at. The following is a sample string to use for your search:
This is a search for "radio controlled clock" on our site.
You will need to change all the green text with your information.
The first line is the URL for your Miva front page. You will need to change
giftbox in the second line to your store code. If you are not sure what it is, click
on any category in your store and check the URL generated and see what comes after "Store_Code" till the first "&" and that will be your store
code. In the third line you can see the search criteria we used. Replace each
word with a word you need and separate the words with "+".
You can use as many words as you want.
Make sure you put the whole string as the linking URL. We put them in three lines
for display purposes but you will need the whole string as the HREF.
To have more targeted links to "pre-made" searches you can put
certain words or codes in the product description. You can have such words hidden
as comment tags in HTML as follows: <!--code1, code2, code3, etc.-->
and that way, while the example search above will pick up all the clocks, and radios, and
the sought for "radio controlled clocks", a unique code inserted in all the
radio controlled clock pages and used as a
search criteria will bring only the radio controlled clocks. If you have a code for
"radio controlled" and use it for the search, the return form will show all
radio controlled items including clocks, watches, or anything else. It will skip
radio sets, or clocks that are not radio controlled.
