This is somewhat of a follow-up to a question I asked some time ago: Trying to design nice category drilldown with one "held" taxonomy and a repeatable list of categories
I've sort of got a better idea of what I want, but only a vague idea of how to accomplish it and I was hoping to get some feedback.
I'm going to be using wordpress as a CMS. Instead of posts with blog-type info, I'd be making Products with a number of shared properties (which I'd assign to taxonomies). I want to create a good search/navigation area for people to be able to find the Product Info/Review that they want. Really something like New Egg (www.newegg.com) has when you try and find a piece of computer equipment you want. Were you go in and start in say the Processor category, and then you can drilldown to what you want. All the posts with the 3GHZ taxonomy. The Search box would adjust then to show all those posts and the remaining taxonomies you could drill down by, socket type, AMD/Intel etc... and have it hold on to those properties as you pass through.
I know I can use either cookies or a session to hold the values as I pass down through them, but not entire sure how to approach the rest of the code.
I'm looking for any open source examples I might be able to look through where this has been done before that would help me develop something like this for my site.
Thanks in advance!
