Problem with categories page

hi all,

 

i have a promblem with the categories page in oscommerce.

 

when you view the page i get a series of "n" s going down the page.

 

i think i can see the code that is causing the prob:

 

from index.php,

// we've found the deepest category the customer is in
	}
  }
} else {
  $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
}

$number_of_categories = tep_db_num_rows($categories_query);

$rows = 0;
while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) {
  $rows++;
  $cPath_new = tep_get_path($categories['categories_id']);
  $width = (int)(100 / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) . '%';
  echo '				<td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "n";
  if ((($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) == floor($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW)) && ($rows != $number_of_categories)) {
	echo '			  </tr>' . "n";
	echo '			  <tr>' . "n";
  }
}

// needed for the new products module shown below

 

can anyone explain to me why im getting these n's displayed?

 

cheers in advance

Sounds like you are using the osCommerce File Manager to edit your files. It is very buggy and I would highly recommend using a PHP/HTML editor to make changes to your pages then uploading them to your site. You can search the forums for some good, free editors that are out there. I would also recommend getting one that displays the line numbers (it makes editing and adding contributions much easier). Lastly, get yourself a decent FTP program for uploading files to the site.
