I need to create a year, make, model search for my store front to find products based upon the drop down choices.

from the sounds of things it will need to be done with a database of some sorts. any suggestions of how this can be done within the NS Commerce hosting platform?

my current site is http://mysecuritypro.com/ and would like to create a key search by year, make and model similar to what is being used on https://ikeyless.com

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance,
scott

I have the same thing on our auto parts website. http://www.pacesetterexhaust.com Except I only set mine up for a make/model search. Adding the years would have been easy enough. I had to set up all of the ymm info as attributes, which was a pain in the ass to set up, but is fairly easy to maintain. I am anticipating changing it this year to search an aces and pies file instead of the ns attributes but for now this works fine for us.

I did it all with a fairly simple javascript code. Pm me with your email address if you want me to send you the actual code so you can see how I did it.

PM Sent. Thanks for your reply. I think that may be a usable solution.

Do you think the javascript code could be placed in a column rather than a different page? We also could use similar...year, make, model, engine.

Karol - I pull it in with an iframe so yes it can be put in a column. I personally didn't do this because some of our models/sub models have way too many characters for a column, for example 65th Anniversary Special Edition, stuff like that. The owner here wants larger print on all of the pages so I couldn't condense it enough for a column and still have it look good. I have another site that uses the same ymm search and I have it so i comes up on every page at the top except actual product pages.
