Great mod. Anyway to remove the product list from the main page though?

Shows all my categories on my welcome page but also is including product images with price. Any way to get rid of this?

Default Re: Mod for subcategories in columns with descriptions and icons

Hi Guys I tried the code in post #271 which had some interesting effects

- displays the category thumbnail and a header link
- unfortunately it doesn't show the category description text
- it seems to have swapped sides with the lefthand navigation which has jumped to the righthand side of the page...

looks like I need to make some changes any ideas?

Nick

Default Re: Mod for subcategories in columns with descriptions and icons

Hi, I tried using this mod. I liked the way you were pulling in information. I changed it a bit to make a <ul> instead, but there is something wrong. It's not pulling any data from the database. The loop works fine, all the HTML gets populated, but wherever the data should appear, the HTML is blank. Is there a reason why this wouldn't pull in data for me? Maybe the version?

Below is the code, thanks very much to anyone who considers this small issue.

Code:
{capture name=dialog} {assign var="tmp" value="0"} {section name=cat_num loop=$subcategories} {if $subcategories[cat_num].category}{assign var="tmp" value="1"}{/if} {/section} <ul id="subcategories"> {section name=cat_num loop=$subcategories} <li> <a href="home.php?cat={$subcategories[cat_num].categoryid}"><img src="{$xcart_web_dir}/image.php?id={$subcategories[cat_num].categoryid}&amp;type=C" alt="" class="p_img" /></a> <p class="subcategory_p_title"><a href="home.php?cat={$subcategories[cat_num].categoryid}">{$subcategories[cat_num].category|escape}</a></p> <p class="subcategory_p_desc">{$categories[cat_num].description|escape}</p> </li> {/section} </ul>

Default Re: Mod for subcategories in columns with descriptions and icons

this is a great mod. Looking for a modified version, which would read as follows:

CategoryA (Image)
CategoryA (title)
SubcategoryA (title)
SubcategoryB (title)
SubcategoryC (title)

Does anyone know how to modify the code to do that???

Default Re: Mod for subcategories in columns with descriptions and icons

I am using the code from post #271 to display my subcategories using version 4.1.10, although I changed the code to only display one category image and title per row. I have read and re-read this post over and over and I cannot find code that will work in v4.1.10 that allows for the inclusion of the category description within the row. When complete, I would like to display the category image on the left, then the category title to the right of the image and the category description below the category description. Would someone please help me understand how to add the additional code to the template(s) in v4.1.10?

Thank you so much in advance,

I moved the code for the css to the skin1_c.css and this worked.
