The e-commerce.

Hi, i have been trying this for a while but i can admit i am lost. :blush:


In the english/index.php i am trying to change the following piece of code:


elseif ($category_depth == 'nested') {
 define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Categories');


Instead of 'Categories' being displayed im trying to get the category title displayed.


Any ideas, anyone. Please

Ok, after a bit more playing i have now come up with this:


I think in order to get the Category name displayed instead of just 'CATEGORIES' i need a query.

I have done a small query which looks like this:


$categories_name = tep_db_query("select categories_name from categories_description");


I think (not sure) i have said that '$categories_name' should get its information from TABLE:categories_description and select only categories_name


How am i doing so far?


I think i need a little more though.

When someone clicks on the Parent Category in the 'categories box' should i somehow have the 'catgories_id' passed on the link that with the 'categories_name'

to in turn display the category name at the top of the page.??


I may just have lost my self with all of that :D


I hope it makes sense to someone what im trying to achieve.


Just for luck, here is my edited code from: 'language/english/index.php

There are a couple of contributions that will do that. =)

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,207 is a great one cause it also helps with search engines






probably more but i think those are enough choices for you. =)
