Stop expanding catagories


ComicWisdom

Recommended Posts

I would like to stop the categories menu from expanding when the top category is clicked.

 

Instead, I would like the categories listed only in the content section of the page.

 

If you go here:

 

http://www.subnetmask.org/catalog/index.php

 

you will see how ridiculous it looks when the subcategories appear in the left menu since I am using graphics for the categories. I would like the to NOT do that.

 

Does someone out there know how?

Just between us, remember there are only 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't!!

 

Remember, learning is a "do-it-yourself" experience; although, not necessarily a "do-it-BY-yourself" experience.

catalog/includes/boxes/categories.php

 

find this code:

  //------------------------
 if (tep_not_null($cPath)) {
$new_path = '';
reset($cPath_array);
while (list($key, $value) = each($cPath_array)) {
  unset($parent_id);
  unset($first_id);
  $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$value . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id='" . (int)$languages_id ."' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
  if (tep_db_num_rows($categories_query)) {
	$new_path .= $value;
	while ($row = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) {
	  $tree[$row['categories_id']] = array('name' => $row['categories_name'],
										   'parent' => $row['parent_id'],
										   'level' => $key+1,
										   'path' => $new_path . '_' . $row['categories_id'],
										   'next_id' => false);

	  if (isset($parent_id)) {
		$tree[$parent_id]['next_id'] = $row['categories_id'];
	  }

	  $parent_id = $row['categories_id'];

	  if (!isset($first_id)) {
		$first_id = $row['categories_id'];
	  }

	  $last_id = $row['categories_id'];
	}
	$tree[$last_id]['next_id'] = $tree[$value]['next_id'];
	$tree[$value]['next_id'] = $first_id;
	$new_path .= '_';
  } else {
	break;
  }
}
 }

and either delete or comment it out.

Thank you! It's a perfect fit.
