Unexpected filter results

edited November 2015 in Share
I have an advanced module with a filter on a field called 'parent'. When I filter on this parent field with id 30 (as shown in url below) I get items with parent 305 as well. Any thoughts on how to prevent this?

    Try adding the following to your model:
    public $filter_join = 'and';

    Stumbled into this issue again. So what I have is a select with parent categories in the listview. When I select parent category 92 I get parent category 192 as well. The sql explains it:

    SELECT `id`, `title`, `slug`, `parent`, `precedence`, `active` FROM (`shop_categories`) WHERE (LOWER(shop_categories.parent) LIKE "%92%") ORDER BY `title` asc LIMIT 50

    It performs a LIKE on the filter. Would it possible to perform an exact match instead?

    You can add suffixes to your field names that will apply different operators in the comparison. In your case, you want a shop_categories.parent_equal:

    Thanks! Works like a charm ;-)
