Hi

In a very large e-commerce seblod site we have a dropdown list displaying all the categories/sub categories/sub sub categories of the products. This is way too large (thousands of categories here!)

we are aiming to use cascade dynamic fields. Instead of one field we would have three cascade dynamic fields.

This is quite straightfoward to use cascade fields since the joomla categories already have the parent/child architecture.

the issue here is the MATCHING criteria (3 boutton) we should use on each cascade field

we have 3 cascade fields here :

categories_cascade_field whose storage is standard / article / catid

sub_categories_cascade_field whose storage is standard / article / catid

sub_sub_categories_cascade_field whose storage is standard / article / catid


the problem is that a joomla content can't be in several categories at once! 

how can we tell seblod ton only take into account the LAST cascade field for the query ??

in some case the last cascade will the first, the second and sometimes the third !


Thanks for your ideas

Set storage to None in first 2 cascades?

Hi Klas

No because in some cases you just want to select the articles of the first category :(

Ideally the matching criterion should be dynamically set to none / exact  depending on the selection of the other fields

I think you can use the conditional settings to disable the first field if second is filled, disable the first and second fields if the third field is filled.
