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

I used the code exactly as above and now have two columns as seen here:

http://www.partypresence.co.uk/store/home.php?cat=248

How do I get the icons to show to the left of the headings (which part of the code do I edit?) and how can I get the columns to align left rather than centred like they are as I changed this part:

Code:
<td valign="top" align="center"> <a class="alt" href="home.php?cat={ $subcategories[cat_num].categoryid }"> {if $subcategories[cat_num].icon_url}<IMG height="100" border="0" alighn="middle" src="{if $subcategories[cat_num].icon_url}{$subcategories[cat_num].icon_url}{else}{$xcart_web_dir}/icon.php?catego ryid={$cat}{/if}">{/if}


and changed "center" to "left" but nothing happened?

Thanks for your help .... and thanks Padraic (Balinor) for pointing me to this mod

OK, all done and working now on version 4.0.19 as seen here:

http://www.partypresence.co.uk/store/home.php?cat=248

The subcategories code is:

Code:
{* $Id: subcategories.tpl,v 1.43.2.9 2006/06/27 08:22:01 svowl Exp $ *} {if $active_modules.Bestsellers ne "" and $config.Modules.bestsellers_menu ne "Y"} {include file="modules/Bestsellers/bestsellers.tpl"} {/if} {if $active_modules.Special_Offers and $category_offers} <BR><BR> {include file="modules/Special_Offers/customer/category_offers_short_list.tpl"} {/if} {if ($navigation_page eq "")||($navigation_page eq "1")}{$current_category.description}<BR><BR>{/if} {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} {if $subcategories} <table cellspacing="5" width="100%" border="0"> <tr> {foreach from=$subcategories item=subcat} {if $tmp is div by 3} </tr><tr><td colspan="3"></td></tr><tr valign="top"> {/if} { if $tmp and $first_subcat ne "Y" } {assign var="tmp" value=0} {assign var="first_subcat" value="Y"} {/if} <td class="ColumnTitles" valign="top"><a title="{$subcat.description}" href="home.php?cat={ $subcat.categoryid }"><img src="{if $subcat.icon_url}{$subcat.icon_url}{else}{$xcart_web_dir}/default_image.gif{/if}" alt="" align="middle" <br><left> <font class="ItemsList">{ $subcat.category|escape }</font></a> {if $config.Appearance.count_products eq "Y"} {/if} {assign var="tmp" value=$tmp+1} {/foreach} </table> {/if} {if $tmp and $products ne "" } <BR clear="left"> <HR size="1" noshade> {/if} {if $products} {if $sort_fields} <DIV align="right">{include file="main/search_sort_by.tpl" sort_fields=$sort_fields selected=$search_prefilled.sort_field direction=$search_prefilled.sort_direction url="home.php?cat=`$cat`&"}</DIV> {/if} {if $total_pages gt 2} <BR> { include file="customer/main/navigation.tpl" } {/if} <BR> {include file="customer/main/products.tpl" products=$products} {/if} {if $products eq "" and $tmp eq "0"} {$lng.txt_no_products_in_cat} {/if} {/capture} {include file="dialog.tpl" title=$current_category.category content=$smarty.capture.dialog extra="width=100%"} {if $products eq ""} {if $f_products ne ""} <P> {include file="customer/main/featured.tpl"} {/if} {/if} { include file="customer/main/navigation.tpl" }

mrkenzie's mod worked wonders. However, I have an appearance issue on one subcat only http://www.poweredag.com/home.php?cat=3 where the second row subcat title is to the right of the image. It only happens with this subcat. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
I havent tried the mod yet but just looking at your site - have you tried reducing the number of characters in the title to see if this makes a difference? Alternatively, have you tried making the image area slightly wider.

Just a thought.

Thanks BizzyB,

It was a title character issue as you suggested, but I solved it with a hyphen.

{if 
$active_modules.Special_Offers and $category_offers}
<
BR><BR>
{include 
file="modules/Special_Offers/customer/category_offers_short_list.tpl"}
{/if}
{if (
$navigation_page eq "")||($navigation_page eq "1")}{$current_category.description}<BR><BR>{/if}

{/if}
{if 
$total_pages gt 2}
<

{ include

{/if}
<

{include 
file="customer/main/products.tpl" products=$products}
{/if}
{if 
$products eq "" and $tmp eq "0"}
{

I have v4.1.3 and used mrkenzie's mod on page 14. It worked like a charm for me. The images should be uploaded to the file system, and I called them from the admin section subcat menu. You can see it working here: http://www.poweredag.com/Commercial-p-1-c-3.html
Hope that answered your question.

Looks like a great mod. Unfortunately I've forgot to keep updated with this tread.
ANybody knows which code I need to know for 4.0.17? 4.0.X version will do.
I don't need the DSEFU code as I am using DSEFU PRO, but images are stored in the file system.

Thanks for the help.
