hello, I'm using 6.50 and i'm linking products from an existing site. I triple checked that I have correct matching catalogid #'s but when I use the <a href="shopquery.asp?catalogid=1">View Product #1</a> link on my site to go to the store, I keep getting the "no products found for your search" message? I tried switching it to id= to no avail...

I ended up using <a href="shopexd.asp?id=1">View Product #1</a> and it works fine... just wondering why the normal method wouldn't work?

Thanks in advance!

Here is the difference between shopquery.asp and shopexd.asp.
It may explain this issue.

shopquery.asp generates SQL to select those products matching fields in the products table and then goes to shopdisplayproducts.asp to display products,

shopexd.asp displays ONE product based on its catalogid.

Because shopquery generates complex SQL it may not display a products because of setting in your shop configuration.
For example:

  • Product may be hidden

  • Does not have enough stock

  • Does not match current language

  • Does not match current customer

  • Does not match current site

Shopexd.asp ignores all these attributes and just displays the record.
