bruce@brucedill.com created the topic: Setting Menu Filters From View

I have created a Content builder view tag for each dog breed (200) in each state of the United States. There are 200 breeds in the US and 50 states. When finished there will be 10,000 views and 10,000 Menu Items. Eventually we will do the same functions for every country in the world. There are approximately 200 countries in the world so this means a total of 50,000 views and 50,000 menu items.

When the menu item is created I must use the filter function to indicate the specific breed, state, puppies available and also insert the element id in the view

EXAMPLE

Tag = Airedale Terrier Puppies for Sale in Alabama
View = Affenpinscher Puppies for Sale in Alabama
Afghan Hound Puppies for Sale in Alabama
Airedale Terrier Puppies for Sale in Alabama
etc................

Menu Title = Affenpinscher Puppies for Sale in Alabama


IF the ContentBuilder View TAG = Puppies for Sale in Alabama
THEN
1) Check the view for the Breed and set the view element id in the menu with the element id from the view
2) Set the US State filter to "AL"
3) Check the view for the US State and set the view element id in the menu with the element id from the view.
4) Set the Puppies Available? Filter to "Yes"
5) Check the view for the "Puppies Available?" and set the view filter element id in the menu with the element id from the view.

I plan to have a program where I enter the ContentBuilder View Tag and the program will search all tags and then set the necessary elements automatically.

I am sure there will be questions so feel free to ask.

Thanks,

Bruce
