Hi Guys,

I just got the Dynamic SEO-Friendly URLs from SafetyNet Web thanks Hooter and I 'm using the Fashion Mosaic on a new shop 4.0.16

So the question is, has anyone got an example with subcategories in a 3 column layout with an image for each sub-cat with name and product count below the image, using the above mod?

Thanks

Arton

... for the first "$to_search =" statement above just add ,$sql_tbl[categories].description between the quotes at the end....

On my version, instead of
Code:
{section name=cat_num loop=$subcategories}
I had
Code:
{foreach from=$subcategories item=subcat}.
My subcategories listing is single column.
So I put
Code:
{$subcat.description|escape}
instead of
Code:
{ $categories[cat_num].description|escape }
and its working fine now.

Default Language issues

I've finaly been able to get my description to show.
Except that it will only show the default language.

Here's my working code with the default language
Code:
{foreach from=$subcategories item=subcat} <tr> <TD width="70" align="center" valign="top" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" style="padding:3px 3px 5px 3px">[img]{$xcart_web_dir}/icon.php?categoryid={ $subcat.categoryid }[/img] </td> <td valign="top" style="padding:10px 3px 5px 3px" bgcolor="#E6E7DB"><A href="home.php?cat={ $subcat.categoryid }"><FONT class="ProductTitle"> {$subcat.category|escape } </FONT></A> <div class="Productlist"> /******* description here******/ {$subcat.description|regex_replace:"/[\n]/":" "} {if $config.Appearance.count_products eq "Y"} {if $subcat.product_count}{ $subcat.product_count } {$lng.lbl_products|lower} {elseif $subcat.subcategory_count > 1} {$subcat.subcategory_count } {$lng.lbl_categories|lower} {else} { $subcat.subcategory_count } {$lng.lbl_categorie|lower} {/if} {/if} </div></TD> </TR> <tr> <td bgcolor="#ffffff"></td> <td bgcolor="#B8BC97">[img]{$ImagesDir}/spacer.gif[/img]</td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#ffffff" ></td> <td align="right" bgcolor="#E6E7DB"><table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td>[img]{$ImagesDir}/plus_details.gif[/img]</td> <td background="{$ImagesDir}/pix_plus.gif">{$lng.lbl_see_details}</td> <td>[img]{$ImagesDir}/right_plus.gif[/img]</td> </tr> </table></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#B8BC97" colspan="2">[img]{$ImagesDir}/spacer.gif[/img]</td> </tr> {/foreach}

What do I have to change to get the description to show in all the language?

I've tried with no success
Code:
{$subcat.lng.description|regex_replace:"/[\n]/":" "}
Code:
{$lng.subcat.description|regex_replace:"/[\n]/":" "}

Is there something else I have to modify in categories.php?

Martin

Hey Martin,

Try this for include/categories.php (backup your existing file, I did not have a chance to test it):

Code:
did not work, will update


Let me know if this one did not help.

I didn't see an answer for this, and I just figured it out, so I thought I would share in case others want it too. I used WECKS change to the subcategories.tpl file posted here: http://forum.x-cart.com/viewtopic.php?p=78344#78344. To change the format to 3 columns I did the following:

on line 21 I changed this bit from:
Code:
{ if %cat_num.index% is div by 2}
to
Code:
{ if %cat_num.index% is div by 3}

Just so it looked better, on line 24, within the <TD> tags, I added width="33%".

I couldn't believe it was so simple. :P

Hi Guys,

Sorry for asking again but I'm still looking for this mod.

I have got the Dynamic SEO-Friendly URLs from SafetyNet Web thanks Hooter and I 'm using the Fashion Mosaic on a new shop 4.0.16

So the question is, has anyone got an example with subcategories in a 3 column layout with an image for each sub-cat with name and product count below the image, using Dynamic SEO-Friendly URLs from SafetyNet Webs mod?

Thanks

Arton
