Workaround for dynamic collection filtering

Hi folks,

I’m in a bit of a quandary on this one. I have a client with a database that has 41 categories. They want the ability to filter the results based upon the selected category. Now, I know we can’t do dynamic filtering yet so I’m trying to figure out a better way to do it. Here are my thoughts:

  1. Use a tab system, with each tab showing a pre-filtered list. Great, but I’m capped at 20 collection references. If I go this route…
    a. Is there a way around that 20 limit?
    b. How can I make a tab that instead of opening a tab, just goes to a URL (as in a “See more categories” link)?

  2. Use a drop-down menu which takes me to a pre-filtered list on another page. Problem is, that’s 41 pages of my 100 limit I’m eating up doing this and I’m already half way through that limit!

So, what have others done to get around this?


@OhioWebGuy Why don’t you use a CMS dropdown that takes you to the CMS categorie page using the CMS option current categorie?

Janne - In one sentence you’ve just solved all my issues. Didn’t even think of that!!!

Thank you!!!
