Quick question on Category Description v1.01

Recommended Posts

I installed the contribution "Category Description v1.01 by Draven", I feel correctly. But I don't understand this little bit in the install.txt file:


Usage Example:

<?php echo $categories_desc['categories_description']; ?>

You may use this anywhere in your catalog (within a category) where you would like the category description to appear.


As a newbie to PHP and osCommerce, what does it mean? WHERE specifically can I put the above mentioned string to get category descriptions to show on my catalog? By the way, the admin portion appears to work.. allowing me to enter descriptive text for categories.....just can't get them to show up on the catalog.



Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Guys,


I have just installed this contrib and I need to use the


<?php echo $categories_desc['categories_description']; ?>


to display the category description under the category image I have.


I am adding this code into my main page via the define main page contrib.


So what I need to know is how to add ?cpath=21 for example to the above php code so it pulls the category description from the database?


Anyone know how to do this?
