First off, thanks for any help you can provide me with.
Ok the problem:
I am setting up an affiliate site using wordpress, and the plugin i am using (which is paid for and the dev hasn’t given me the support he promised in his pre sales agreement) returns products, retailers, brands etc based on a pre defined string. e.g of coding. [afil query=“iphone” ]. What i am trying to do is change it so the results shown are based on what the user wants to see, so a little search form where they would be able to type e.g “Search: ‘Iphone’ Retailer:‘phoneshop’” which would then return all results relating to the search.
Things to know:
The afilliate plugin works by calling data from an external database.
The code must begin [afil query="" ]
I have tried creating a text field which when submitted (POST method) would echo the text to the code.
e.g [afil query="<?php echo $text1;?>" ] - This would just return a random display of results.
I hope you can be of any help as this has been a head scratcher for me for about 5 days now.
