Querystring and categories

Querystring and categories was created by Flash
My client has your storelocator component installed on their Joomla site and I have a few questions:

Currently the categories are set as countries, and the Store Locator main page shows all the retailers in all the countries. A second 'page' is required with only those Retailers that stock a certain brand.

From some products, the client wants to link to the Store Locator page and only show those retailers that stock that product.

Ideally I’d like to assign some products a secondary category (in addition to their country) named “brand1” and link to the page with a querystring, i.e. “storelocatorpage?php?catergory=brand1”.
For this to happen, each product would have to be capable of multiple categories, and the StoreLocator code would need to read the querystring.

I am not sure your item can do this? Is there another way?

We do support tags, in addition to categories, which can have multiples assigned to a location. However you would need to modify the code to get it to set that tag by query string. Does that point you in the right direction? If you need a custom modified component please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
