Removing Categories view from display

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am trying to have large image display our product of the day. I would like this to display in two areas. First on the splash page, this part seems pretty simple. Just edit cataloge/index.php and include the code

          <tr><!--the line below is the one you edit to change the link of the Splash image change \|/ only the id number-->
           <td><?php echo '<p><a href="' . tep_href_link('product_info.php', 'cPath=1&products_id=1430') . '"><img src="images/splash.jpg" alt="Click to buy" name="../images/splash" width="400" height="200" border="0" id="../images/splash"></a></p>'; ?></td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
           <td><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '10'); ?></td>
         </tr>

after the customer greeting. Is that right?

The second is escapes me. I would like to have the same link as above display when some one clicks on a category that has subcategories, and instead of the subcategories displaying in the center colum I would like the above link. Can anyone tell which code to change?

thanks

Christian

index.php, find this and comment it out completely, and where it was put it your new pic

 

    if (isset($cPath) && strpos('_', $cPath)) {
// check to see if there are deeper categories within the current category
     $category_links = array_reverse($cPath_array);
     for($i=0, $n=sizeof($category_links); $i<$n; $i++) {
       $categories_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as total from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$category_links[$i] . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
       $categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query);
       if ($categories['total'] < 1) {
         // do nothing, go through the loop
       } else {
         $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$category_links[$i] . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
         break; // we've found the deepest category the customer is in
       }
     }
   } else {
     $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
   }

   $number_of_categories = tep_db_num_rows($categories_query);

   $rows = 0;
   while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) {
     $rows++;
     $cPath_new = tep_get_path($categories['categories_id']);
     $width = (int)(100 / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) . '%';
     echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n";
     if ((($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) == floor($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW)) && ($rows != $number_of_categories)) {
       echo '              </tr>' . "\n";
       echo '              <tr>' . "\n";
     }
   }

Quick follow up questions, One this will not prevent subcategories from displaying in the categories box. Two do I leave in the line

    $new_products_category_id = $current_category_id;

which was not mentioned in your code block above? As I read the code this line is needed to track the current category.

thanks Again

that is needed if you want to display the new items/cat on the bottom of your page ... it will not bother anyone if you do not use it, so I left it in.
