Display extra field in filters page

Submitted by pricetapid on Sat, 2010-04-10 15:27.

Hi,

I would like to display the actual criteria on the filters page.

Right now, it display 3 or 4 columns (Search and Replace, Configure Delete, Field) depending on how you count it.

I would like to display the criteria at the end of each row. I can tell it's probably on the feeds_filters.php page, but, how can I do that?

Thanks.

Hi,

Yes - that can be done quite easily. In admin/feeds_filters.php, look for the following code at line 80:

 print "<th>Field</th>";

...and REPLACE with:

 print "<th>Field</th>";
 print "<th>Criteria</th>";

And then look for the following code at line 98

     print "<td>".$fields[$filter["field"]]."</td>";

...and REPLACE with:

     print "<td>".$fields[$filter["field"]]."</td>";
     print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE)."</td>";

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
David.

Hi,

That was the plan...! This line:

print "<td>".unserialize($filter["data"])."</td>";

...should actually be:

print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE)."</td>";

The output may appear a little cryptic but you should be able to pick-out all the relevant information without needing special code to display the settings for each filter type.

Cheers,
David.

Okay, thanks. I thought I would re-try explaining it just in case we weren't thinking the same thing. Anyways, I understand the output.

For some reason it doesn't display inside the table cell, but, that's alright, it displays what I need to know.

To make the same modification for Global Filters, look for the following code at line 69 of admin/global_filters.php

    print "<th>Field</th>";

...and REPLACE with:

    print "<th>Field</th>";
    print "<th>Criteria</th>";

...and then look for the following code at line 87:

      print "<td>".$config_fieldSet[$filter["field"]]."</td>";

...and REPLACE with:

     print "<td>".$config_fieldSet[$filter["field"]]."</td>";
     print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE)."</td>";

Cheers,
David.

This is a good mod. Thanks.

I use HTML in my filters so I added htmlspecialchars to make the html display as text instead of being interpreted. Here's the code. Please let me know if you see any issues.

print "<td>".htmlspecialchars(print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE))."</td>";

Thanks,
Gregor

That looks fine, Gregor!

Hi David,
I use this mod and it works well and is really useful. Is there a way to display the category mapping with a list of alternates in a similar way in the admin panel, so you can easily see the alternatives. Obviously it might be too much for larger sites but where there are just a few category mappings it could save overlaps.
I have tried the following on categories.php in a similar place to the filters.php, but it does not work

print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($category["alternates"]),TRUE)."</td>";

Also with the shortlist feature http://www.pricetapestry.com/node/3707 is there a simple way to email the results to the user or make the cookie longer than the one session.
Many Thanks
Ben

Hi Ben,

The `alternates` field is actually stored as a new-line separated string, so have a go with just:

print "<td>".print nl2br($category["alternates"])."</td>";

Regarding the shortlist - sure the cookies can be made persistant (by setting an expire date way into the future). In the shoppingList.php script there are 2 instances of the line that sets the cookie:

    setcookie("shoppingList",serialize($shoppingList));

...REPLACE each with:

    setcookie("shoppingList",serialize($shoppingList),mktime(0,0,0,1,1,2035));

Cheers,
David.

Hi David
They both work brilliantly. Fantastic Help as Always
Thank you very much
Ben
Ps The first set cookie line of your reply to be replaced should have been
setcookie("shoppingList",serialize($shoppingList));

Ah yes, well spotted! (corrected above)

Hi David,

Ran into a problem with this mod that I use on previous versions.

version 15/09 Beta

I've tried this
print "<td>".$fields[$filter["data"]]."</td>";
& this.
print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE)."</td>";

But neither returns any output.

Thanks in advace.

Hello Bob,

The second version;

print "<td>".print_r(unserialize($filter["data"]),TRUE)."</td>";

...should work fine in 15/09A (Beta) however for a more user-friendly output, have a go with the following modification to admin/feeds_filters.php. Look for the following code at line 149:

      print "<td>".$fields[$filter["field"]]."</td>";

...and REPLACE with:

      print "<td>".$fields[$filter["field"]]."</td>";
      print "<td>";
      $data = unserialize($filter["data"]);
      foreach($data as $k => $v)
      {
        print "<strong>".$k."</strong>: ".$v."<br />";
      }
      print "</td>";

If still nothing showing let me know and I'll check it out further with you...

Cheers,
David.

You be the man, Mr. David.

Your version worked like a Champ.

Thank you.

I really like the output of this mod David.
Might be a quick fix ???
These 6 Filters return an error code on line# foreach as there isn't any data required for them.

Name Case
UTF8 Encode
UTF8 Decode
HTMLEntityDecode
Trim Spaces
Remove Duplicates

Thanks in advance.

Hello Bob,

No problem, alternative replacement:

      print "<td>".$fields[$filter["field"]]."</td>";
      print "<td>";
      $data = unserialize($filter["data"]);
      if (is_array($data))
      {
        foreach($data as $k => $v)
        {
          print "<strong>".$k."</strong>: ".$v."<br />";
        }
      }
      print "</td>";

Cheers,
David.
