I'm working on a classified ads (Cars and Parts) website that people can post their ads with the ability to make the ad
Promoted (Using Flag module)
What is a featured Ad: if an ads is featured it will show up and stays at the top of the list and the design is a bit different (like any other websites with featured ads)
What is a Pormoted Ad: Users can promote their ad and boost the ad to the top of the list everyday so it stays at the top, wether it's Featured or not.
Since there is a lot of options to filter the search results, I wanted to use Ajax for better user experience and performance, also I want to keep the result page in this order even if it gets sorted or filtered:
- Featured Ads (Prioritized by Promoted date Featured Ads then Submitted Date)
- Promoted Ads (Prioritized by Promoted date and submitted date)
- Free Ads (Prioritized by Submitted date)
So I want to be able to sort and filter my results but still keep the main priority.
so I tried Ajax Facets module but since it doesn't generate URL the rest of my website functionality kinda breaks!
A good case study is http://jobs.drupal.org, it has everything that I want except the Promoted part!
Thank you so much in advance.
