Sample Search Results with Filters/Paging Our demo area is loaded with most of the SEO modules, BYZ110 for static content pages, BYZ163 for static product-detail pages, BYZ164 for static category pages, BYZ116 for enhanced searching/paging, BYZ121 for related-categories on search results, BYZ158 for the browsable sitemap, BYZ161 for predictive search on the search mini-form at the top.


How it works:
For any categories that you want to cross-sell, you use one of your spare categories columns to stamp the related categories onto (ie a list of categoryids, separated by commas).

When your customers view the products for a given category, the corresponding list of cross-sold categories are shown at the top of the results (the full tree of each cross-sold category, with each element linked to a search)

You can also optionally put cross-sold categories onto product templates (eg to cross-sell categories on product detail pages, or even on product-summary pages on a per-product basis).


Technical/Developer Information:
Formatting/html is easily customized as the relevant output logic is split-out from the main logic into configuration files.
