Custom filed not displaying in the beggining of the category

3 years 4 months ago - 3 years 4 months ago #74030 by sotiris
Trying to find out how search of custom filed is working especially in peer categories.For example i have a main category database for example and subcategories lv1 eg sub1 and sub2 and in this subcategories i have another sub categories eg sub11 sub12 sub 13 sub21 etc.Creating custom filed and assigning them to articles then when i try to make a search from the top of the category nothing is shown.The custom fields is showing up if i have been in the subcategory only.i have created all indexes again also i have stop all other search plhgins and i have only flexiadvsearch plugin active still cant search from top level even with the name of an article that is ona level 2 subcategory.
Is there any work around to search from the top category and going down to subcategories or search is working only in the same category?

Hello

search will use the current category view configuration

if you have configured to show subcategory items then you can search for them too

well its true that search has more options.But the search i have activated in the category properties in search/filter form i have activate there "use search".It shows the search module but it doesnt include any subcategory custom fields i have created only if i enter in the specific subcategory this is working.General search is working a little bit better cause there i can search with the specific fields.in advance search options.

Hello

do you mean that a custom filter for the category view does not display ?

Hello

if you mean a custom filter, then yes of course
a filter selected in subcategories will not display in its parent category view

Filters displayed are the ones configured (or inherited via configuration) for current category view

Yes its true i am using the search activated in categories settings and assigning there the custom fields.
I have found a solution for this by assigning the articles in multiple categories for example the article is assigned in Root category,subcategory 1 and then subcategory2.This way the custom fields is displayed everywhere in this 3 categories.
Advance search on the other hand doesnt have this problem it took in mind all articles and categories in search without having the problem to use multicategories.
What i want to do is build a database based on a root category named DB have 3 main subcategories and then in this 3 subcategories have another subcategories based on subject and then the articles.
Do you thing this is the best approach so a viewer can filter anytime anywhere he want even in root category for the subject he is looking for?

Hello

instead of assigning items (articles) in parent categories

- edit the configuration of the category and enable the display of subcategory items

you can do the above for all categories in component configuration, thus it will effect all categories with "Use Global"
