    Default Browsing through categories

    Good morning.

    This is probably a very simple change but I'm stuck at the moment!

    On our book library we have Genres (Categories) which have sub-categories for authors (manufacturers) so when you use the drop-down select a genre it then displays all the authors held within that genre. Selecting an author displays all their books.

    We would like an option to simply browse all books regardless of the author by selecting a genre.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    This is related to Bookx module .... or Book by moku ?

    However I didn't quite understood the issue. You can try to post in the Bookx thread, maybe the author Philou will come up.
    I use a lot this module, so more or less I'm very familiar with the code, but when you say we have Genres (Categories) which have sub-categories for authors (manufacturers) I got lost

    Genres don't have tree relations, they work like tags.
    So maybe you mean Categories with subCategories and somehow you are using authors as manufactures ?

    So the filter you are using is the author's filter or manufacturer filter ?
    Anyway, Have you tried the option turn off the multiple filter ( if this is bookx related) ?

    Sorry, didn't really understood.

    Hi.

    OK this is not BookX or Book by Moku. I tried BookX a long while back and it completely destroyed my database!!

    The way we use the system is based on the original V1.5.1 installation with a lot of bespoking. So where Zen-Cart has:

    Top-level category ==> Manufacturer ==> sub-categories

    we renamed it all to Genre (Top-level category) ==> Author (Manufacturer) ==> Book Series (sub-category).

    Does that help at all?
