I want to create a search form on my homepage/man site index so the user can search a single table (product) using a keyword or also keyword plus brand select from dropdown and/or department selection from dropdown.
Does this require the form to have a model? Or should I create the search form without a model if that possible?
The keyword field of the search form would try to match the name field within the product table.
My other question is should I use POST or URL parameters (URL Parameter such as localhost:8888/advanced/search?keyword=ddd&brand=ddd&categoryddd)
