How can I make an URL selection in a product list?#

It is possible to make a selection in a product list by giving behind the URL of the product list a search instruction -querystring-. This can also be used for a search block on the homepage of your web site - read more -. The general format is productlistURL?searchcolumn=searchterm. "Searchcolumn" is the name of the column to be searched

Example: http://$domain$/shop8317/productlist1/?soort=pc
The only condition is that is chosen for category search or extended search and that the search column is defined when the shop is generated.
Furthermore it matters if you use a skin (tab pages) for your product list. In such a case an example of a URL is http://$domain$/shop8317/naamtabblad/?soort=pc. At the different possibilities below we will give 2 examples, the first one without ´skin´, the last one with ´skin´.

Search options you give with a querystring are depending on the selected search options in the wizard for uploading a new product list. The querystring has the same functionality as the generated search block. Below the different options:

not searching
If the option no search block is selected it is also possible to use the parameter _globalsearch -just as for quick search-

quick search
Applying quick search within all columns of the spreadsheet is searched for the given query. This query is case insensitive and insensitive for punctuation marks on vowels -öõôóòïíìëêéèäãâàüûúùý-.
syntax: productlistURL?_globalsearch=searchstring.

example without skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/productlist1/?_globalsearch=jeugd

example with skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/naamtabblad/?_globalsearch=jeugd

category search
In case of category search within all columns of one category in the spreadsheet is searched for the given search string. It is important that the name of the category column is given in its exact form. The given search string is case insensitive and insensitive for punctuation marks on vowels -öõôóòïíìëêéèäãâàüûúùý-. Parameters can also left out.
syntax: productlijstURL?categorie=categorienaam&_globalsearch=zoekterm.

example without skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/productlist1/?Genre=jeugd&_globalsearch=potter

example with skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/naamtabblad/?Genre=jeugd&_globalsearch=potter

column search
In case of column search within one column is searched for the given string. it is of importance that the search string is given precisely
syntax: productlijstURL?zoekkolom=zoekterm.

example without skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/productlist1/?Titel=Bond

example with skin: http://$domain$/shop8317/naamtabblad/?Titel=Bond

extended search
Extended search is a special form of column search. In more than one columns can be searched for the given string. For this you can also the _globalsearch parameter added

syntax: productlistURL?searchcolumn1=searchstring1&searchcoulumn2=searchstring2. The maximum number of search columns is 6.

example without skin: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?Hoofdgroep=diverse&Subgroep=Sumo

example with skin: http://$domain$/shop9873/naamtabblad/?Hoofdgroep=diverse&Subgroep=Sumo

Optional parameters:

example: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?_view=default1
example: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?_view=default2
example: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?_view=default3
example: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?_view=default4
example: http://$domain$/shop9873/productlist1/?_view=default5

It is also possible to combine the separate parameters:http://$domain$/shop8317/productlist1/?Genre=jeugd&_lang=de&_rows=4

Advanced search options available for searching:

  • AND operator
    It gives the option to search for products names in which two given strings appear. You use a mark between the search strings. By giving oem low, products are found with the words oem and low in it. For _globalsearch the maximum of search strings is 3, for searching within a column this number is unlimited.
    To search for a sequence place the search string between quotes: "dell pc".
  • OR operator -only in combination with _globalsearch-
    It gives the option to look for one of the given search strings by using the | operator. Give the search string oem|low and products are searched for containing thge string oem or low.You can search for a total of three words.
  • start: operator -only in combination with _globalsearch-
    You can also search on the begin of a field by giving the opertator 'start:' before the search string. For example 'start:c' finds all products starting with the letter 'c'

Remaining items:

  • type
    For every column the first 10 lines are taken for the type definition -numeric, text, picture or link- If -for example- only numbers are found in the specific column, the entire column is defined as numeric. In case of a text column the entire column is checked whether it is free format text -descriptions- or a group classification -Brands-.
