Quick question... I have a domain through yahoo.... can I get my webspace through iPage? Many thanks for any response. My 2nd question... Is it possible to add the category image to the categories box for only the "root" categories?.

For example, I have two main categories, which show up in the categories box on the left. Under those categories there are many subcategories..

Only the main categories have images linked to them..

I would like the categories box to display the category image with the category name under. When clicked, all subcategories would appear as usual..

Is this possible?.

Thanks,.

                                               'path' => $categories['categories_id'],.

And run the following SQL:.

INSERT INTO configuration (configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, date_added) VALUES ('Category Box Image Width', 'BOX_CATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH', '20', 'The pixel width of category box images', '4', '-1', now());.

INSERT INTO configuration (configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, date_added) VALUES ('Category Box Image Height', 'BOX_CATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT', '12', 'The pixel height of category box images', '4', '0', now());.

You may need to adjust image sizes under admin > Configuration > Images. You may also want to move around the code I put after lines 41-3 depending on where in the row you want it. Between lines 28 and 30 would also be a reasonable place to put it..

Thank you for the reply... I made the modifications that you suggested and everything appears fine, however it is still not working. I don't get an error or anything. Just no image..

Any ideas?.

Comment #3

I discovered the problem....

The error was within the following code:.

If ($tree[$counter]['level'] == 0) {.

    $categories_string .= tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES$tree[$counter]['categories_image'], $tree[$counter]['name'], BOX_CATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, BOX_CATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT);.

  }.

The tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES$tree[$counter]['categories_image'] should have been tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES$tree[$counter]['image'] because 'image' was the name given in the array. categories_image was the name in the db..

Thanks for the help,.

Is it possible to add the category image to the categories box for only the "root" categories?.

For example, I have two main categories, which show up in the categories box on the left. Under those categories there are many subcategories..

Only the main categories have images linked to them..

I would like the categories box to display the category image with the category name under. When clicked, all subcategories would appear as usual..

Is this possible?.
