Does anyone know how to do this?

Recommended Posts

I just installed the Category Description contrib and it works perfectly. However, I would also like to add the description below the category links in the Category box. I have no knowledge of PHP but I tried duplicating how the code works from catalog/index.php (where it displays Page heading and Category description on the category listing page) into boxes/categories.php but it didnt work. Seems like a reasonable solution, what am I missing?

 

$category_query = tep_db_query("select cd.categories_name, cd.categories_heading_title, cd.categories_description, c.categories_image from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.categories_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
$category = tep_db_fetch_array($category_query);

$categories_string .= '<br>' . $category['categories_description'] . '<br>';

 

That's what I have so far in boxes/categories.php. The additions were made around line 57. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
