The answer is Yes, but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm my answer as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you email the iPage guys because they can help better...

// display category name.

$categories_string .= tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'checkout_bullet.gif', '')tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '5', '1')$foo[$counter]['name'];.

Or If you want the image to be part of the link.

$categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new);.

$categories_string .= '">'tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES'checkout_bullet.gif', '')tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '5', '1');.

Ok so you actually want the image as a background with the text over the image..

So the codes I gave you do actually work as the image is where it would be...

Comment #6

Yes, thats exactly what I want!.

How would that work? I would have the same text on every single one!..

Comment #7

The codes that I initially gave was in response to your post and it is to this that I refer that the codes work, which they do..

It is how you have worded what you are after that was initially missleading and therefore the codes do not do what you were after, it is not that the codes do not work..

It needs an entirely different approach to have the background image with the text on top as this would normally be done using a <td> which has the image as a background and then the text as the fill..

Do you have the same text beside each image at present, no, the text is different..

Are you wanting to have different images for each category or do you want the layout that you have but with the text moved from the side to be over the image...

Comment #8

My initial plan was to have the text move over onto the image but I think it would be a LOT nicer if I can have a different image for each one which will allow me more customization..
