Categories: Text to Images

Hey all:

 

I was wondering if anyone could help me change the text of the Categories to little clickable images.

 

For example, the basic setup has:

 

CD's (3)

Vinyl (2)

Shirts (1)

 

How can I place images on the page in place of the text (Vinyl (2))?

 

TIA

What I do is type in the img src in the place where the category text is typed in.

 

 

Category Name

 

to

 

<img src="images/categoryButton.gif" border=0">

 

You may have to increase the field length in the database, though.

Good luck

Use phpMyAdmin to increase the field length.

 

Go to the properties for the categories_description table categories_name field and edit it from 32 to 64 or more.

I did a screenshot here:

Let me know if you still can't get it done. good luck with it.
