    'FilterDropdown2' Widget Usage


    I'm trying to use a custom field as a search filter.

    I have used the 'FilterDropDown2' widget to add the field to the search box on our home page and on the results page (list.php) also.

    When I do a search on the home page, it doesn't make a difference what I select in the 'FilterDropDown2' menu, it always returns all search results.

    However, when I then do a search on the results page, the 'FilterDropDown2' menu does work and my results are filtered by the selected value.

    I'm guessing that this has something to do with a JavaScript Event and/or Listener, but I just can't figure it out.

    Can anyone provide a clue or some advice on how to solve the issue?

      I had a similar problem.  

      I had found out that my problem was a result of multiple reports on pages.  I had actually put one report on my template, and my home/list page contained another.  Those reports all shared the same filters, such as 'kw', as they were all a variation of the Answer report (ID: 166).  

      I ended up with the help of a RightNow post customizing a report widget to ignore the url parameters.  Which I suspect is your issue.

      So if you have a similar setup(2 or more reports on a page) check out the post I have linked below and see if it helps get you to an answer.
