I have spent a lot of time figuring out what I wanted for my category images and started creating them. Then I realized I have never seen a category image on the site, either my live site or the development site on my localhost with the stock products. Which led to the question, "Where do they show up?". Or do they? Is there any place on any page where the category images will appear?

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script>

The code above is causing "Unsecure items" popup on your SSL pages.

You can't load content from http sources on https pages.
If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

I'm not sure what you are referring to. I have never encountered an "Unsecure Items" popup anywhere. I also can't imagine why the Google+ code would cause it since it only appears on product info pages, which are not secure. Did you see this on my site? I just logged in but didn't see any such thing.

I just want to know where category images are supposed to appear since I have never seen them on the site.

The code snippet I posted is on your login page, and maybe others (it's your job to look not mine).

If you haven't seen the unsecure items popup then you haven't tried to checkout on your site with Internet Explorer.

First germ what the heck does categories images have to do with https? NONE, NOT, NOTHING!

"Where do they show up?". Or do they? Is there any place on any page where the category images will appear?

Catagories Images are not at the head of the categories but the little thumbnail sized images when there are subcategories on the stock osc there are 3 listed across in a row. The code for those are found on index.php starts around line 59. You add those images for each category in admin when you start that category. AND OMG THERE ISN'T ANY HTTPS CODE FOR THOSE IMAGES.

The SSL side of the site is practically worthless the way it is.

It needs fixed.

Next time think before you post.

My reply may not have anything to do with the item they posted about it is an item that needs addressed.

So the category images never appear anywhere, only the sub-categories?

As to the other thing, I won't bother saying what I think of IE, but since so many people insist on using it I guess I had better fix that. I found the instructions here for installing the Google+ code; you would think people would have mentioned if it produced unwanted results. Thanks for calling it to my attention.

The images for the top-level categories are not used in stock osCommerce. You can use an add-on such as Categories Images to show them on the front page.

The images for lower-level categories show up on the parent category page, and on the category page itself for some versions of osCommerce.

It's more a question of "Where do you want them to show up?"

Thanks Jim(s), that's all I wanted to know. It isn't really a matter of wanting them; I just realized I had never seen them and wondered if there was any point in spending the time to make them all.

As far as the Google Plus code, I changed the address from http to https. It takes a little longer to load the button, but doesn't appear to affect the rest of the page. I wouldn't use IE even if I could so I can't make sure that fixed it, so if anyone would be so kind as to check for me I would really appreciate it.
