Default Adding extra variable to $product array

Hi,

Does anybody know how to add an extra variable to the $product array? I need to add each product's sub-category id.

Thanks for any advice.

I think you want to look at include/func/func.product.php
"function func_select_product"

I believe $product['categoryid'] already exists.

Thanks, you're right that's the script. I've managed to figure it out.

Yes, I think you're right, from looking at the func.product.php script that variable is there so I might be able to use that, or if not I'll just look the id/ids up from the database.

Whenever you are wondering if a variable exists, or what is contained in an array, use webmaster mode.

yes, I used {$products|@debug_print_var} to inspect the array, seems like there's everything apart from each product's categoryid.

Ah, $products is different than $product. Since a product can be in more than one category you may be looking for the product's main category. This info can be pulled from the products_categories table and you may want to do this in include/search.php.
