Saving Filters

Post by sandy3269 » 2018-01-27 23:17

I am currently saving filters in a database table with 3 fields, ID, Description and a clickable link field.

Works well for my applications, allowing me to generate the most used filters for my and my customers needs. The only issue is that it generates a new page instead of replacing the current page, ie _blank instead of _parent.

Link code is the filter generated without the <a /> tags, like: ... ment+State

This gives me a table of filters that are great, just want to improve it. Also it would be cool if this could be a built in feature.

We plan to implement a feature where users could define and save their own filters (and possibly share them with their group). For this table, you could try to set the data type of the filter field as text and set it as rich text area instead of a link. You can then insert the link via the "Link" icon of the rich editor and specify the target as _parent it should work fine.
