Custom Catagories Menu and Manufacturers


dezil

Recommended Posts

Im working on an oscommerce site and have hit a stumbling block. I have 2 questions and any help would be fantastic.

 

Ok just so no-one thinks im asking a simple question i know i can add products to multiple catagories which half solves my problem. The site i am designing needs to have a list of tools, which is easy, all of which may be in multple catagories or in catagories organised by trade type. eg fencing, building, diy etc.

 

My question is how do i split them up so that the first list of catagories by tool type has a divider that could look similar to this site Powerfix with a catagories and trade focus.

 

My second question is far simplier i would like to make an info box to browse by manufacturer but list all of them by logo, theres only a small number of manufacturers. I am sure i have seen this as a contribution before, but i cant find it anywhere! Can anyone point me in the right direction, it looks similar to ScrewFix sites browse by brand.

 

Thanks for any answers.

For the manufacturer pics, use this:

Not sure what you mean about the categories ... will a product belong to several trade types too, or only to one?

I managed to hack the manufacturers box so that it works with images instead, as for the catagories i have something like this so far for my catagories box

 

Tools

-Nailers

-Bradders

-Parts

Fastners

-Nails

-Brads

-Pins

Trades

-Fencing

-Diy

-Furniture

 

Now what i want is my catagories box to read

Tools

-Nailers

-Bradders

-Parts

Fastners

-Nails

-Brads

-Pins

 

And a seperate box for trades to read

-Fencing

-Diy

-Furniture

 

Or something like that.

 

I figured out i can do it by duplicating the catagories box and editing the sql query to the database for catagories and the new duplicate but it seems more of a hack that an addition.

oh definitely, I was about to suggest the duplicating and editing sql thing ...

 

exclude the trades for the first box (by category_id) and only allow the trade cat for the second box
