We're in the process of upgrading our last website to 5.4.
On this site, we use two types of category: one to sort by product type and one to sort by product application. I therefore want to add a second categories sidebar to the site so that I can separate them.
Adding the custom module, etc, to display a second box in the sidebar is something that I've done on a previous site (although not to display a category list), so I think I can cover that bit. The bit I am struggling with is how I formulate the code to select which categories to display in which box.
When I did this on a previous version of X-Cart, I was able to do it by using an IF statement and looking at the $category_id (as shown here https://forum.x-cart.com/showpost.php?p=280361&postcount=13
) but I'm struggling with it on X-Cart 5.
Does anyone know how I can code an IF statement to select (for instance) only categories with an ID of less than 50? Or have any suggestions of a better way to achieve what I'm trying to do?
Thanks in advance.
