Squashed Bugs

Saluki: Fixed an issue with merchandising campaigns triggering intermittently. An example would be if you set up a merchandising campaign on your shirts category and elevated a green shirt to the top of results. If someone went to your shirts category and then filtered for the color blue you would not want that green shirt to still be elevated in the results. You wouldn’t want it in the results at all.
