get Category-box larger ! how ?

Recommended Posts

I have a lot of categries and deep racines and the menu is quite a mass.

 

To make it nicer I want to avoid new lines of a topic (when the category-name is too long it comes to a new line, at the very left of the box - this makes it quite massy).

 

So to avoid new lines I need to make the box (and the whole left column) larger.

 

How can I do this ?

 

Thank you very much for any help !

you can change the line in catalog/includes/application_top.php however this will change both right and left columns or you can follow instructions below

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1. Open catalog/includes/application_top.php

2. Find the line (around line 47) that reads

// customization for the design layout
 define('BOX_WIDTH', 145); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125)

3. after this, add the following lines ....

// customization for the design layout left column
 define('BOX_WIDTH_LEFT', 165); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125)
 
// customization for the design layout right column
 define('BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT', 125); // how wide the boxes should be in pixels (default: 125)

4. (set your own width preferences (I have used 165 pixels for the left column and 125 pixels for the right) Save file

 

5. Now open the second file to edit: catalog/index.php

6. Find the first line to change at (around line 51) that reads

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

7. REPLACE this line, with the following line ....

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_LEFT; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_LEFT; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

8. Find the second line to change at (around line 325) that reads

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

9.REPLACE this line with the following line....

<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH_RIGHT; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

10.Repeat steps 6 to 9 for the other files that you want to change the width in otherwise the changes will only be to the index page and pages loaded into the index page. This can be achieved by using a find and replace search function.

11.Save your file changes and upload to your server
