I've been working on something similar to this, instead of using HTML I'm building XML that flash is parsing and building a category tree thats browsable without making the clients browser referesh on every click, so far I don't have a demo up, as the client I was doing it for, his hosting provider had an HD crash and lost all my work, so I'll be rewriting this, and hopefully will have a preview. This could be achieved also with some DHTML, it would really be a matter of spacing the menu out, as I've left the basic cat on the left and added my flash category's to the middle area above featured products. This is sorta similar to how macromedia.com's side nav bar works.

None, the less, this is a great HTML mod for the categories, kudos derrick! :wink:

I have added this to my x-cart test installation, and on the customer end it works perfectly... However, there is a problem in the admin panel when trying to add or modify categories. I get the following error message:

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at /estore/include/categories.php:160) in /estore/admin/process_category.php on line 56 (or 65)

If I restore the original /xcart/include/categories.php file, then this error goes away, but then the effect no longer works when I am inside a sub-category.

Any help please? :)

Ignore my previous post - I re-uploaded the categories.php file, and it works :oops:

Thanks for a great addition :)

When installed and items are added to the cart, the sub-category listing closes. To continue shopping, one must re-select the main category to re-list the 1st layer of sub-categories. Any idea how to have the first layer remain open?

works fine on 3.4.1
just install on 3.4.1 and it seems to work until you get to the product detail...

Trying to get this category display in the "cart" area. Any ideas? I have had several complaints from customers on being able to continue shopping and this should help.

Added the continue shopping "back" feature, but the category drill down does not return?

I have been trying this code and derivatives of, yet I am unable to get the code to even recognize the $topcat variable.... is there a place where the smarty templates have to grab the variable via PHP before I can use it in the SMARTY templates? I see the variable being passed inthe url... but i can't use it...

any help would be greatly appreciated...


only the last category (missing gif) has sub categories... once you click on that, the sub menus appear, but after you click on the submenu,(in the left column) they no longer appear...

Any idea if this will work in 3.4.8?

X-Cart 3.4.7
I just tried this in X-Cart 3.4.7 and it makes the categories blank. Anybody have a clue? Can anybody make this work for this version number?

Is there anybody else doing this that can also show more than one sub-category.
