On a static page, I would like to add "for more of XYZ Click Here." For example, "for more Beatles music, Click Here." The Beatles are one of hundreds of bands in various categories, so it would be a pain to create a separate category for every band in the world...

The XYZ link would simply be the search result from shopsearch.asp, without the customer knowing it.

I was hoping to simply use the URL from the search result and use this for the click-here link on the static page, but the search result URL is always the same for any search:

Is there a possible solution - some way that a search result could be coded as a link and added to a static page?

Found the answer in the developer docs. Simple, and perfect, and exactly what I needed.

Answer is: http://www.etc./shopquery.asp?cname=beatles

Returns the search result and lists all Beatles titles.

I was never clear on what shopquery was, as opposed to shopsearch.asp. Now, I know!
