Anyway to have an if statement to work just on a category page that displays the products? So far I can only see it working if it's 'xxx' but I need it to work on just the categorys with products listed on it.

How about:

{if $main eq "catalog" and $current_category.category ne ""}

This makes certain that there is a category that is not empty. This is the inverse of the homepage (where category will be empty).
Yes?

That if/else statement should work for all categories on all x-cart versions without fail. Usually I'll do the ID though just to be extra safe:

Code:
{if $main eq "catalog" AND $current_category.categoryid ne ""}Show Text{/if}

I have this below:

{if $main eq "catalog" AND $current_category.categoryid ne ""}
{include file="modules/Refine_Filters/customer_filter.tpl"}
{/if}

Trying to make the filter only work on the last categories the page with products showing in a list.

Having it on every category isn't what I need. (Hope I'm explaining my self right)

Cheers guys

Basically pages showing products, the filter appears on every category which looks poor, if it just appears on categories with products showing it would make my life easier lol

I would setup a new checkbox on the category page in admin checked by default, then just uncheck it if I didn't want this element to show.
