Re: Sales site categorization

What would actually be useful is full text search, with booleans, of a free text field describing the object. Categories are nearly always 'fuzzy' and subject to ambiguity and misuse. You could always add category fields if you thought they might be useful, but as an addition to, not a replacement for free text search. Of course, that might founder on people's ability to write cogent, correct, brief descriptions of items. Many good ideas, on meeting the public, retire to plant cabbages in their gardens.
