It would be great if we had the posibility to select multiple colors in the colorbox (or any module for that matter) :)

    I have been looking into that,

    it's a bit tricky,

    technically we could use array query parameters like q3[]=red&q3[]=blue

    question is how to get it nice into a SEF url. use underscores : example.com/jeans/red_blue

    underscores are currently removed by the parser so they are 'free' to abuse, ,'s and ;'s ain't

    can't use commas they might be used in some categories ( Selectx ) or titles.

    there are not many characters remaining: the underscore '_' and maybe the backslash '\'

    So

    theurl/jeans/red\green\yellow/women

    or

    theurl/jeans/red_green_yellow/women

    Well here is THE LIST excluded by the parser, you votes please
    • \
    • _
    • >
    • < - used by html however that might work since we strip before html comes to action
    • ' - quotes
    • / - used by http
    • - - used by joomla
    • : - used by joomla
    • & - used by http
    • " - quotes
    • ? - used by http
    • + - is an encoded space and joomla messes with the encoded '+' ( %2B )
    • # - used by http
    • % - used by http ( encoding), joomla probable messes with these as well

    the comma would be my favourite however then the comma must be excluded from all other terms and that might mess up a lot of websites...
