[CONTRIBUTION] Add Bullet Images v1.0


Recommended Posts

  • 4 months later...

Hi, thanks for doing the ground work. If you place it slightly lower down and add a 'border="0"' then the bullet will also be clickable. Which I think is more usable.


I thought of adding a boolean to switch it on and off in the admin section, mainly just so that I can work out how to that with something simple.




1. Open catalog/includes/boxes/categories.php

2. Find the lines (around line 29) that read


$categories_string .= tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new);

$categories_string .= '">';


3. AFTER this line, add the lines below, making the images part of the hyperlink

4. Copy the .gif files to the catalog/images/category_arrows directory and name them as detailed in the code.



// BOF: KA Add Bullet Images v1.1 - based on Toby Adams' Add Bullet Images v1.0 Contrib http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,568

// possibly add in a bool to switch on or off and add as standard to ms build

   if (tep_has_category_subcategories($counter)) {

    if ( ($id) && (in_array($counter, $id)) ) {

         // category expanded

  	 $categories_string .= '<img src="images/category_arrows/arrow_expanded.gif" align="absmiddle" border="0"> ';

       } else {

     // category collapsed

         $categories_string .= '<img src="images/category_arrows/arrow_collapsed.gif" align="absmiddle" border="0"> ';


} else {

  // category's children

 $categories_string .= '<img src="images/category_arrows/arrow_bullet.gif" align="absmiddle" border="0"> ';


// EOF: KA - Add Bullet Images v1.1



When the going get's tough,

the tough get going.
