Is there a way on the Search function to choose more than one category?

At the moment it's either all or just one category.

Hi there,

This is currently not possible, but a little bit of PHP programming can do wonders . . .
If you are familiar with PHP programming, let me know and I will give you a few hints.

Oh yes please! I'm actually modifying the source to suit my needs.

Some tips or samples to point me to the right direction would be great!

Another question, I have this categories which are accessible in public view but I want to hide it on the calendar view.

I tried making in private but I need it to be accessible when users (public) want to do search.

Any sugestion?

I have an idea, can I use a different kind of retrieve function wherein even if the category is not public, when a user (public) does (for example) a search, it will also be included on the search result?

Hi there,

You could edit the file 'common/retrieve.php' and on lines 112 and 128 remove and !$row['pri'] from the if-statement. Thereafter it will not (never) filter on 'private'.

Choose more than one category on Search page:

In the file 'pages/search.php' on line 88 add 'multiple' to the select-tag. Now you can select multiple categories by holding down the 'Ctrl' key (See w3schools).

Now on line 30 you should grab the selected categories (as is done on lines 27 - 29 for $eF).

Thereafter on line 121 you should adapt the filter to include all selected categories.

Hi Roel,

I tried removing the and !$row['pri'] on the lines you mentioned in retrieve.php but the categories (which are private) are still not showing on the search results for a public user.

Hi Roel,

Forget about the private category being accessible in public through search, we changed the behaviour of how we use it instead.

But thanks anyway, great support! smile
