Can I have multiple search form fields search the same listing field using an AND operator?

e.g. /search.php?product=Sony&product=HD

-> this will display all listings with "Sony" AND "HD" in the product field.

Will this work or should I be doing this some other way?

Thank you.

Yes, that's what it will do by default so that should work no problem.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks again.


Hi Dave,

That's useful to know, thanks.

Also, can you clarify what the difference is (if any) between:




Thank you,


Taking a stab at it, I think product_keyword=HD would find HDMI whereas product=HD would not find it?

Would product=HD and product_match=HD be the same query?

Hi Guys, 

Yea, that's right.  *_keyword matches if the keyword is anywhere in the value.  Otherwise, it needs to be an exact match.
