  • FILTERING - can layout and use be changed?

    I quite like the look and feel of this Lawnmower Advisor:

    But it is really using filtering to get to the answer, just like we do anyway but this takes a step-by-step guided approach.

    Could the in-built sellerdeck filtering data be accessed and presented in this way?

    Hi Jez, I can't see why not. But the front end would have to be built from scratch - either with CSS or Javascript, I'm not sure which would work best - and the search script driven from there. Perfectly doable IMO, but not easy.

      This is encouraging. I would really like to be able to have a guided wizard like approach to help the customer s choose a product. Are any of our learned colleagues out there up to the challenge? Obviously I am willing to put some money into this work.

        I've done similar things before. One approach would be to put all products (or their Duplicates) in a special Section. These products would have Variables for type (robot / user), garden size, etc. A custom section layout would be used that contains the sorting / hiding images and controls and custom code. As the customer makes their selection the products below would be sorted and/or hidden as appropriate.
