Hi all

Quick question - I'm using Aceshop integrated into a Joomla site so appreciate the following question isn't really Opencart related (but Joomace aren't being that helpful!).

The default search module in Joomla isn't behaving as I wish - I've got a module sitting in the header which in theory should be linked to the search in Opencart/Aceshop. Trouble is, everytime you search something from the header search box it links through to the search page in Opencart as if you've searched nothing?

You can take a look at the page here (http://www.stickerscape.co.uk) to see what's happening.

Any suggestions or thoughts would be much appreciated.

Mike

It's likely not passing the URL variable. This was filter_name in previous OpenCart versions and search in recent versions. You theme will need to be updated to make sure it passes this, so contact your theme designer (or AceShop developer).

Annoyingly JoomAce aren't playing ball - my subscription with them expired a few weeks ago and they're refusing to look at this without renewing - which feels a bit overkill to just get over this issue.

I don't mind editing the code myself with a few helpful pointers. As you say Jonathan, if I search "rocket" using the search module it returns this URL: http://www.stickerscape.co.uk/search?se ... ord=rocket i.e. does not work.

Whereas, if I search "rocket" (inc. product descriptions) within AceShop it returns this URL: http://www.stickerscape.co.uk/search?fi ... ame=advent i.e.does work.

Is it the Joomla code that I'd need to edit therefore to return the correct URL?

I think you're searching in Joomla for a product, and not in the OpenCart search. searchphrase and searchword are not part of OpenCart or any custom theme I've seen. If you want to pass the search onto OpenCart so it only searched products, then you'd need to edit the Joomla code to change the URL to your second one, which is the one OpenCart would use.
