Understanding categories


Recommended Posts



I'm new to the forum and OSCommerce. I'm trying to get an understanding of how new categories are being added to the tables.


I specifically do not understand how the parent id and sort id are being inserted into the table.


I can't seem to find the query(ies) that perform the category insert.


How is the sort_id determined? In the demo database all I see is 1,2,3 and then everything else has 0's.


Can someone provide me with the MySQL statement(s) that inserts a new category and subcategory?


Thank you.
