Adding top navigation in addition to side nav

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I'm making a site in which I want to add category navigation to the header.php, file. Does anyone know how to do this? I just want the top-level categories to appear and not any nested categories. Here is the code from the file categories.php, then i'm assuming i would have to make a reference to the tep_show_category function in the header.php file?

 

here's the half-finished site, with the top navigation links at the top reflecting what i want to do.

thanks a million in advance, i've really been beating my head over this one.

 

 

  function tep_show_category($counter) {
   global $tree, $categories_string, $cPath_array;

   for ($i=0; $i<$tree[$counter]['level']; $i++) {
     $categories_string .= "    ";
   }

   $categories_string .= '<a href="';

   if ($tree[$counter]['parent'] == 0) {
     $cPath_new = 'cPath=' . $counter;
   } else {
     $cPath_new = 'cPath=' . $tree[$counter]['path'];
   }

   $categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">';

   if (isset($cPath_array) && in_array($counter, $cPath_array)) {
     $categories_string .= '<b>';
   }

// display category name
   $categories_string .= $tree[$counter]['name'];

   if (isset($cPath_array) && in_array($counter, $cPath_array)) {
     $categories_string .= '</b>';
   }

   $categories_string .= '</a>';

   if (SHOW_COUNTS == 'true') {
     $products_in_category = tep_count_products_in_category($counter);
     /*if ($products_in_category > 0) {
       $categories_string .= ' (' . $products_in_category . ')';
     }*/
   }

   $categories_string .= '<br>';

   if ($tree[$counter]['next_id'] != false) {
     tep_show_category($tree[$counter]['next_id']);
   }
 }
