I'm trying to make a simple "Filter By..." option section for a View such that when someone wants to narrow results they can do so by clicking a checkbox or link and getting a shorter list, narrowed by their choice option. One sees this all the time in online shopping, where you filter products by brand, type of item, price, etc., to narrow down the list to something close to what you're looking for.
Is this done by creating (for example) 8 separate clones of the View, then adding a filter on each and linking to this new view?? Or can this be done as a function of the one lone View itself?
It's easy to see this working for "products" being filtered by "cameras," "lenses," "brand," and "price." 4 new clones with different filters added to each to display the properly sifted results. Link to the new sub-view and voila.
That was my approach. Then I realized the gotcha is that if I want to have "Lenses" and a "Price" category...or "Cameras" with "DSLR" or "Point and Shoot" AND a Price category...suddenly this gets to be a nightmare of dozens or even hundreds of cloned views.
I have a hunch that Drupal's got this covered in a far easier way. Is there a module that allows me to make a simple block that will have a toggle for different categories?
