I plan a website based on Joomla 1.6.1 for creating a product catalog. I found the Yootheme Zoo extention (Basic free Blog App) perfect in order to manage and display the content = productinformation (elements = characteristics). Based on the extra fields it allows me to create backend templates to describe the items = products. It allows me easy handlig of elements = extra field display in the front end.
What I am missing is a simple Module for Joomla to
--> Navigate through the products based on custom fields (i dont want to use the zoo categories)
--> Filter the list view of items (products) based on the selection of relevant element values = characteristics
The Filter should be dynamic and not allow to make senseless selections (should be Excel- Auto Filter like)
In the module config I would like to select the "Zoo App" and define the elements / characteristics to be displayed in the
module and their order. Based on the selection made, the list view of the posts= products should be filtered.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
