Nice mod Shan,

How about creating another field for a product and only adding specific keywords in that field related to a product and calling that field..?

It will be tedious to add the keywords however results will be great...from SEO perspective...

What do you guys think about that...

yes, could add this as an option and have it so that it checks for the meta tags first and if not shows the description

Following the above example I fixed subcategories' icons.
But for some reason. I can only call 'categoryid' or 'category'
not 'description' or 'meta_descript' as I initially wanted.
