I developed an ecommerce component and I have the following problem that I hope you could help me.
The component has a locations manager where we can enlist cities such as: Madrid, London, Paris, Rome.
Then when the user selects a city the website will filter products and companies by that city.
If I choose Madrid I will see products available for Madrid only.
Normally we publish a module above that allows the user to change city if he/she wants by showing a list of cities.
The link of a city will call a task in my controller that sets a cookie with the city ID and redirects to home page.
Then the content is filtered on the web using the value of the cookie.
Sorry for the tedious introduction.
The links are like:
and my customers want:
I guess I could create menu elements using the links, but that means lot more work because some costumers have lots of cities and it is necessary to have then registered in my component and also in the menu manager too.
Is there a way for my module to generate links like
but internally meaning http://theweb.com/deal/dealSetLocationCookie?locationId=1 ?
Or should I try to automatic generate menu elements from my locations manager, but how?
Any other idea.
Thanks for your help
